That can be one of the biggest gas mileage problems to fix. LOL :lol2:  :lol:  OH well we do the best we can given the situation. My wife tries to not ruin my MPG's. :) She's not to concerned about her Explorer MPG's, I usually get 2-3 mpg better when I drive. :)

finally bought a set of 10K miles Michelin on OEM wheels, first  full tank on summer tire, and it's getting warmer (lower 50'S) and did 42mpg, now am happier, but still find that the C-max is thirsty on the highway, is that normal that at 70mph am at two bar most of the time? do you guys have a trick on how to keep the cruising bar out of the yellow on the highway???

At 50*F you are down 4 mpg as compared to 70*F, 50psi in tires?😊

Drive on different roads!

 

First, here's some test data to give you some idea what the car can do. Advanced Vehicle Testing at Idaho National Laboratory is a nice resource for hybrid performance data. Second page is lots of interesting!

https://avt.inl.gov/...c-maxhybrid.pdf

 

Second, I get much better highway mileage driving in Ohio than I do in NY. There's a perfect blend of hill length and grade somewhere that lets you charge on the way up and glide on the way down... in both directions. NYS is too flat, and the hills so steep the battery's dead at the top. Might be different were we in the age of the "double nickel." 59 MPH has half the drag of 70 MPH, but you'll get run over at anything slower!

 

Learning to love back roads was a bit part of becoming a hybrid driver.

One of the advantages of drafting, speeders don't bother you other than slipping in front of you
