My Fusion SE  hybrid is a 2014 and just this year the MPG dropped to the 36-38 mpg range! I never got more than 42 on average from new though.

 

Could it be the plugs?

Maybe time for some injector cleaner. It looks like to me you are doing alot of short trips so the ICE isn't warming up to operating temps, and you may have carbon buildup. ;(

In my opinion these cars never need injector cleaner or plugs unless it's "missing" in which case you'll also get a warning light. Is it hotter this year in Texas? If so the AC is probably the cause. Mileage tanks when the outside air passes 95º F.

I cant get over 38.2 mpg, if fact it has been 38.2 now for over a month no matter how I baby it.  42psi in tires, new air filter, full synthetic, when I get done with my drive it usually tells me I got mid 50's and a braking score from 96-98% efficient with no air on I cant figure it out.  38.2 ain't bad but I can usually get that on the highway without trying so after this last update it has me wondering.  PS it's not the brakes stopping you it's the friction and grip of tire and 50 psi in a tire is not safe, wait for the hard stop on a cold rainy day you won't feel so smart.

I had a mileage drop from 41 to 37 this summer and by raising my AC cabin temp from 72F up to 74F I have reastablished 42 mpg!

I drive a lot of short trips and am told the ICE may not be able to warm up to optimum operating temperature on short trips.
