    Now that the Ford C-Max hybrid is available as anyone
    in our forum had a chance to test drive it and report with
    data, i.e. mpg's, as most reviews don't even mention what
    mpg's they received.

    I test drove one over the weekend and didn't have any trouble getting 45ish mpg. It wasn't that long of a drive, but all the years of driving a Prius were helpful. I suspect that if you drive it like you drive your Prius, you'll get similar mpg to what you get now, even with the bigger engine. It'll go to 60 mph on batteries. So pulse/glide at 55 may be possible. I didn't have time to really mess around with that, but the thought is intriguing.

    see other post on this forum about it... it seems to be getting some good reviews from a lot of people. they have one here at my local dealer, but I'm looking very, very hard at the FFH
