I did a day trip today to Boston and back with my "Blue" hybrid. The photo is blurry but it says 147.5 miles, 40.7mpg. I had the cruise set to 68, but I feathered the "gas" pedal on downhills on electric only up to 72mph until the ICE kicked in.

It is very impressive!
However, I have a question:
When you refueled your car - did you fill the tank full? I am wondering because it shows your trip (since refueling) was 147.5 miles and it also shows that 114 miles left until tank is empty.
Thus, total on a full tank would be only around 262 miles - this is not right for a hybrid.
I usually drive on a full tank between 470-485 miles ( I have Hybrid Limited - should not make a difference in the mpg, vs. Blue, I would think) .

No. Massachusetts has these funky gas pumps on the Mass. Pike where you have to specify a dollar amount, so I just put 20.00 in. The Pike gas is almost 1.00 more per gallon than in the suburbs. I could have made it home without putting fuel in, but i didn't want to push it.

Probably not. Definitely above 30. I'll have to try it next time. my son who lives there just had twins so i'll have plenty of opportunities to experiment. I have another post here that shows my trip to Nashville and back.
