2022 Hyundai Hybrid Limited
Discussion Starter · #1 ·
I have had my Tucson hybrid limited since October. I know very little about hybrids and I’m trying to learn more. I expected more mpg then i’m getting. Most of my driving is very local 10 to 15 minute drives and I’m getting usually around 26 mpg. One time I did have it on a trip and I was getting like 36. I do like to drive a little aggressively as far as accelerating quickly to get out into traffic and things like that. I’m just wondering if this is a normal mpg to be getting on small local trips which is honestly most of my travel because my work is so close to my home. I’m also wondering if when I heat my car up at night meaning I turn it on with the remote inside my house because it’s 20° outside is that using the electric part of the motor to run everything to warm my car up? A lot of times when I get in it after having it run for 10 minutes I’m below half in the battery gauge. I’m sorry if it’s all sound stupid I really know very little about hybrids but the mpg it’s giving is that what you’re getting between gas and electric or is that just what you’re getting with gas and the electric part doesn’t play into that reading?
