2022 Tuscon Hybrid Limited
I recently bought a new 2022 Tuscon Hybrid Limited. After breaking in with normal, non-aggressive driving for the first 500 miles, I decided to take it for a 500 mile drive to visit family. This is almost entirely highway driving and I did a mix of cruise control and non-cruise, but was consistently between 65-80mph the whole way. My overall mileage for the complete odometer is saying 27mpg, and my mileage for highway driving on that trip was closer to 25. Is there something wrong with the vehicle? I know hybrids dont do as well on the highway and I would understand if I got 33 or 35 instead of the EPA 37, or even the 29 that the non-hybrid model gets, but 25 is really dramatic and a huge difference and worse than the non-hybrid. Im barely getting 300 miles on a tank before the low fuel light comes on. My Mazda CX-5 got 370miles and 27mpg and that was with a 2.5L turbo engine and wasnt even a hybrid. Even in slow city driving, I dont see the average mpg go over 32 at any point in the drive and still settles towards 28mpg with the Tuscon Hybrid. Was this false advertising or am I doing something wrong or is there something wrong with the car?
