42.3 mpg displayed over 547.5 miles. The video link is now broken, but I can update it if there are doubts.
It's all about combining E0, pure highway driving, average speed 60-65 mph, and roadway that allows you to just set it in manual mode in 6th gear.
Of course, it is also possible to get terrible mpg. This thing sucks down gas like no other before it has warmed up.
Well in our case we took a 400 mile trip to NYC last summer when temps were above 70F. We took the I 90 the whole way which is fairly flat. We filled up with regular unleaded which can contain up to 10% ethanol and for testing purposes we set the cruise at 65mph which is also the speed limit. Our outcome was a horrible 30.5 mpg hand calculated, display showed 32.7 mpg. Now other than using ethanol free gas which may help a little but is not available how could we possibly achieve the epa estimate.
And yes our mpg gauge is consistently off 1.5 -2.0 mpg which is another issue I have with the car.
