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.
