You must drive barefoot with broken glass on the pedal. Even when driving carefully, I've never approached it.my experience has always been that you can beat the epa numbers with judicious use of throttle. the manufacturer, i think, UNDERESTIMATES mileage. heaven forbid the epa comes down on mb
Agreed I never trusted the on board computers. I used to have a Ford escape.. Powered by Microsoft. No thanksdont know for sure. i bet they are using the cars computer. close enough for me. i know, i know, its better use old fashioned math for better accuracy but it is still good either way.
It was the Fusion Hybrid. They claim 47 mpg highway but the EPA recently lowered it to 43 mpg due to many complaints from customers who said they can't even get close to that.my feeling is that if the company has unrealistic highway mpg the epa WILL come after them ie ford hybrid (i forget the model)
The trip computer in my Accord is pretty accurate. I compare what the computer says with my own calculations and it's pretty close, +/- 0.5 mpg.
