First leg of my trip to Nashville. Cruise set to 68 with bumps up to 72 on downhills.

On a side note looking at your picture I don't know why they put the gas gauge on the charging side there on the right and the charging Guage on the left where the speedometer is. Seems silly to me.

Ha when I test drove it in sport mode I thought the battery gauge was the temperature gauge and panicked because I thought the car overheated.

I notice that both readings are from the "Accumulated Info" tripmeter. The "Since Refueling" tripmeter is too unreliable to use? Mine sure is. I sure would like to have that working Hyundai. It's been a year now and no update to fix the random resetting of the "Since Refueling" tripmeter.

I am just tracking average mileage for the entire trip. I haven't had a problem with my "since refueling" mpg function. I may be because my instrument cluster is not the digital display that the higher end models have.

Initially, I was disappointed with the gas mileage, but the MPG on my 22 Tucson Limited (gas) has significantly improved. I recently had the 3750 mile maintenance and yesterday we did a 200 mile drive from MA to ME ( the longest highway trip yet ). The average MPG hovered around 33 MPG - and that was at an average 65-70 MPH. Even local drives are averaging 26-28 MPG. Impressive!

That is really good. Mine has been pretty consistent over the eight months of ownership ("Blue" Hybrid) . Here is an update on my trip. We are headed back to Ct. now. I played around with sport mode today. I drove in eco until the battery drained to just under 50%, drove 70-75 mph in sport until the battery fully charged, then switched back to eco. Hardly affected the mileage at all and picked up the pace a little. You get a little more torque out of the electric motor with a fully charged battery. The thing really scoots in sport on the highway, 100mph comes up on you with very little effort.

Last leg of my trip (return to Ct) . Today I had the cruise set to 72mph. That dropped the mpg for that part of the trip to about 34mpg, which lowered the overall average. I'm satisfied. This is the second time I took this same trip, with similar results.
