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.

After 9 tanks of fuel and almost 4,000 miles, I am confident I know the real MPG vs what is displayed (both after each tank, and for "trip 1" which I have never reset since buying the car).  My overall MPG, pencil and paper, is 40.3 vs gauge 42.1, a difference of 1.8 MPG.  I do a fair amount of 70+ mph freeway driving, so am happy with 40.3.  Two questions for those who track mileage:  1. Do you see that same 1.8 delta?  Or what?  2. Is there a way for an owner to dial in the displayed mileage to more closely reflect reality?

 

Not a big of deal, I can most days easily subtract 1.8 from any number :) Just fun to know what others have experienced and to tinker with things.

I have 43,000 miles on my Energi and my lifetime average according to the car is 108.9 mpg and 107.4 mpg per Fuelly.  So mine is off by 1.5.

Many owners have found the odometer understates the distance traveled by about 2% and the computer overstates mpg by about 4% leaving a net of about 2% high or about 1 mpg. That's pretty close as car companies go. Plan a GPS route, note the mileage and set a trip counter to check your odometer.

Great point on that, and it can even vary a little with tire wear.  I actually did what you suggest.  In my case, distance traveled according to a hand-held GPS is dead-nuts on with the car's display for a 50 mile trip.  My tires are just about worn out.

 

The speed displayed by the car is 1 mph faster than the actual speed per the GPS.  Interestingly to me at least, the difference doesn't seem to be proportional to speed.  1 mph difference when driving 30 mph, and 1 mph difference when driving 80 mph.

Mine displays approximately 2 mpg more than measured. I stopped checking that a long time ago. Like, what do I really care...

Mine was similar. The trip computers were about 2.25 optimistic compared to hand calculation over the first ~20,000 miles. Stopped tracking it long ago.
