 Lunch today I went up to Decatur via I-85/I-20, 40 mi. and 8 mi city streets and average 59 MPG's. Speeds were 50 to 80 on FWY. Coming back averaged 60.4 mi. MPG's with OT of 85-90*F. I started the trip with 58.2 mpg average and ended with 58.4 with over 600 mi. on tank. Miles to Empty is 170 mi.smile.png

You can go to #1 Post of this thread where you can click on videos or click on Links here. :)

 

I have made three YouTube Videos for driving a CMAX Hybrid/FFH the way it was designed to be driven, Called "How to drive a CMAX Hybrid/ FFH to get great gas mileage", https://www.youtube...._id=5uHoZ5QhVXs
also "CMAX Mods to improve MPG's" and "Hypermiling to improve MPG's".

 

 

Efficiency and Aerodynamic Mods:  The First thing to do is to raise your tire pressure of your Michelin's to 50psi which is safe to do and I got 64k miles for each set of tires on my CMAX.  :)https://www.youtube...._id=Xmuw6275PRw

Hypermiling Video not recommended for those who can't focus on situational awareness of traffic around you all the time.

Let me know what you think, any improvements.
