Freeway vs Backroads

Just got a 2018 Niro plug-in Ė my first hybrid. Iím curious how the gas mileage would vary on, say, a 300 mile trip. Would it be more efficient to drive on highways with limited stops or would the battery charging resulting from regenerative braking make taking 2-lane roads more efficient?

The slower speeds of backroads will result in greater efficiency. Just did a couple of thousand miles on a trip, mostly backroad. 56, 56, and 58 were my three fills calculated mpg. 701 mile actual range on last fill.
