It's a shame Fuelly can't account for the KWH we put into our PHEV's.

my 19 Touring is averaging 53+mpg in second tank [quarter used] so far. i think it actually went up 1-2 mpg because I am not using AC and cooler temp. so the EPA rating is 6-7 miles lower for Touring model because of 100-ish + lbs and 18 inch wheel are way underestimated? I was expecting 45mpg based on fuelly but i am a happy camper with current MPG. Oh, and I am running 38psi but it shows 36psi this morning because of cooler temperature. this week, i will be checking without crossbar but with vent shade in place. because I drive with driver window cracked opened all year, i really need the vent-shade to reduce wind noise and prevent rain from entering. I don't expect vent-shade to cause any additional drag.

The shade does add frontal area and a wind entrainment, so it has extra drag. Is it really quieter? But the way modern cars no longer have gutters does lead to annoying water entry when I would like the windows open.

night and day differences. also far less ruffling sound when multiple windows are opened.
