considering how gung-ho people on this site are about hypermiling (which is so unsafe it isn't funny) you would think getting a bit more out of the battery would be a good thing!
I have a garage kept vehicle, flat roads, and a hybrid that struggles to get 36 mpg actual in combined driving. Yet folks here sing about getting 45 on the interstate! Sum ting wong here!
We seem to be down to one gung-ho, as the rest either died in traffic or moved on in life or started back on their medications. And, yes, wacko-bird hypermiling is unsafe and completely not funny. None of the normal people here do that.
We have one of the 1st 2013s, and have been nothing but delighted. Getting mid 40s for mpg. But, wait! There's more! It is a great looking car, rides like a dream, roomy, comfy, and has been reliable, reliable, reliable. Best car I ever bought. Enjoy it for what it is. At some point, it will become attached to you and gift you better MPGs.
