Which Niro do you have? The Touring edition is only supposed to get 42 mpg overall (if I am remembering correctly), so 39 is within striking distance of that, and not too terrible. But if you have one of the "lower-end" models like me (an EX, in my case) then you definitely should be getting higher mpg.

How fast do you drive?

What is your driving profile?

I get in the mid 30s mpg if I drive in sport mode, 45 to 65 otherwise.

I've been having trouble posting my Niro on fuelly. I do have my HHR on there. I don't know what the problem is and I haven't gotten back to it. I really do want to post because I am averaging 55 to over 60 miles per gallon.

I added my Niro to my Fuelly account when I bought it, but since I haven't added any gas yet it still show 0.0 MPG. Based on what I'm seeing on the dash readout, it might be some time before I have to add gas. It's reporting 120 MPG average since I drove it home a few days ago, and the gas gauge is still pegged on full. Since the entire drive home from the dealer was on EV, it said 999 MPG. I can get used to numbers like that!

When you log into Fuelly, then select your car, scroll down towards the bottom. Right under the logbook there's a bunch of page links. Click "Badges" and you will be given both BBCode and HTML for either the large or small sig line image. I believe this site uses the BBCode style.

Thank you! Now I just need to add gas for the first time so I can get my average off of 0.0. Doing a 400 km trip today, so that should get ride of some gas.

What I did was show a fillup on the day I bought the car (the dealer did give me a full tank), just showed 0.1 gallons added, and entered the odometer reading for when I accepted delivery. Close enough to start the tracking.

Thanks to you folks whom posts on Fuelly, I now have a 2019 S Touring. I was expecting 45mpg based on the average # but I have achieved 51.4 on my first tank. Hybrid is definitely good for commuting on "busy" roads like DC traffic. I am sure interstate driving in 70-80mph will substantially reduce MPG but I am a happy camper comparing to by previous RX350 that averaged 19-20mpg. and range close to 500 miles is what I like the most about my Niro.

I took a freeway trip from the Seattle area to Ellensburg and back, about 250 miles total. This included crossing two mountain passes each way, and I maintained about 70-75 MPH where the speed limit and traffic permitted. I was also using the Sport mode, which reduces MPG slightly while putting a little charge back into my PHEV battery. My MPG for the entire trip was about 52, so I wouldn't expect a major impact with yours. My son-in-law has an Ioniq hybrid, which is roughly the same powertrain as the Niro hybrid. With his heavier throttle foot, he still sees about 55 MPG, and I've taken his car to work a few times and got about 62 MPG. The Niro is extremely efficient.

Yeah, I was staying in Chantilly for about 4 months a couple of years ago. Spent plenty of time on I-66. Having a hybrid will absolutely be worthwhile there!
