2017 SE with 18k miles on the odometer.

 

Trip 1: 340 miles @ 45.4 mpg

Trip 2: 210 miles @ 50.8 mpg

Trip 3: 340 miles @ 40.7 mpg
 

weighted avg for 3 trips ≈ 44.9 mpg.

 

I should have noted the display average.  I may have pictures of average; I'll have to look and edit post if I do.

What kind of driving was Trip 2? The only times I gotten over 50 mpg is when driving on back roads about 45 mph.

Both sets are from my daily commute: about 106 (I call it 110 for easy calculation purposes) miles round trip (a couple of variations available).  Takes about 1.5 hours on average each way, so that comes out to about 34 mph.  A few 1 - 10 mph stretches, a few 10 - 20 mph sections, and some 65 - 70 mph stretches.

Before purchasing, I was figuring I'd be in the "sweet spot" of the hybrid.

With the prior '15 HyTi I had mostly mid to high-40s but had one 52+ MPG tank.  All the driving was normal (for me) running around.  I think weather, road and traffic conditions have a lot to do with it.

Yes, I would say you are in the sweet spot. Not sure all buyers have been aware that such a thing exists. Congrats!

I had a 2013 FFH SE, put 80,000 miles on it before trading it in for a 2017 FFH Platinum. My '13 had a high tankful of 52mpg, overall was 44mpg. The '17 isn't doing quite as well - my highest mpg to date has been 44mpg, overall is only 42mpg. My current tankful is only at 38, which is one of the lowest I've ever gotten.

I just got My '17 fusion hybrid and it seems to get really bad gas mileage on a 1.8 mile trip it says i got 11mpg on the screen that pops up when you turn off the car. We got this car for the reported 44mpg in city and my overall average mpg is 30.5 after 400 miles is there something wrong with it?

Displayed mpg on a 1.8 mile trip means nothing. Your 30.5 mpg after 400 miles might or might not mean something is wrong. What type of driving was that in what kind of weather?

Are you having cold, snowy, windy weather in Oswego, NY? If so, that's the reason.

yes it is cold, so the performance will improve with warmer weather?

You and I are in the same city!!!  Nice!  To answer your question, yes.  Cold temps take the HVB out of its optimum operating range.  Also, the ICE is running more to maintain its operating temps.  Generally I drive like I stole it and don't get a ton of high-MPG receipts but I'm reasonably happy with the results.  Use of any tread than LRR will also contribute to lower MPG - no mater the season.

 

You and I should get together sometime and compare notes on our cars.  I've added a few things (see sig) and you might be interested in them when/if you see the setup.  Usually I am at Dahls Diner out by Rte 29 somewhere around 8 AM if you wanna get together.

 

FYI for casual readers: Oswego is a small burg and I have seen only one other hybrid Fusion in the last 2+ years .... and that was a '14.  Plenty of gas models, but damn few hybrids or Energis.

Also keep in mind that all EPA testing is done with around 4000 miles of break-in.  So until you get at least that much, you can't really come to any conclusions about fuel economy.

That's a short trip.  If you put on the climate control for heat, the ICE will fire up just to generate heat, even if your HVB is full.  That will seriously waste fuel, and you are unlikely to get warm before the end of your trip.

 

If your 400 miles is 20x 1.8 mile trips with the heat on, I am not surprised.  I would expect a non hybrid car to do much worse.

 

Our 2013 is averaging 44.5 at 70k miles.

 

With such short trips, the computer might be getting silly too.  Check your mileage when you pump gas.
