Incredible MPGs

Hey guys, so I bought a NIRO EX last year. I was getting good mileage last summer, even without breaking it in, but now, I am getting fantastic mileage!


My commute is around 20 miles each way, so in the morning, I get around 60-65 mpg, and then when I am coming back in the evening, I am getting 80 + mpg. I am just amazed.


Today, I actually got 94.4 mpg for 23 miles! I am just so so pleased with. I have taken a few screenshots,



How are others doing?

When I first got my 2017 Niro EX I was getting 69 miles per gallon driving it on short trips. Now that I'm doing a 80 mile a day commute I'm averaging 55-59.

Mine is brand new, less than a month old, and I'm getting 55+ MPGs on my 100 mile a day commute. Can't wait to see if it gets better.

Im getting 999mpg with my PHEV, not to shabby. im happy the hybrids are getting over 50 easily it seems. I really like the car, its space and how affordable it is.


my real world MPG will be in a few weeks when i start commuting 100miles a day with it.

Even more screenshots. The one in the 60s are from the morning commute, and the rest are the evening commutes.

That's pretty amazing! Mine is just over a month old now, and I'm averaging right around 50 mpg. Why is it that an improvement would be expected after some more time? Not obvious to me why that would be, but I don't know squat about hybrids (or cars in general for that matter!)...

Dinesh75 is not really getting 90 mpg. He has a plug in hybrid with a larger battery than we do and is mostly using battery power after charging from an outlet. 50 mpg is EPA rating for the hybrid so you are doing fine. If he doesn't plug in, he is actually getting fewer mpg than the regular hybrid.

I have owned the LX for just over a year, average is 52 MPG. Best tank was 57.3MPG, worst was 42.3MPG(cold winter). My mileage seems to be as good, or a tad better in highway driving than town driving. I don't have much city, bumper to bumper/rush hour driving to compare. I'm very pleased to be getting over the EPA estimates, I am not an eco/hyper mileage driver by any stretch, but try to be a sensible one. I think driving too slowly actually is less economical. Because of the gearing, it's best to get up to speed rather than stay in a lower gear longer, to just over the speed wanted, then let the car "plane" out, which lets it go to EV mode easier. I am usually initially accelerating up to speed above the double green area.
I rarely use CC, I find it accelerates less evenly, trying to keep the set speed.
Using the A/C seems to have little or no difference in gas mileage. I keep my tires inflated a couple PSI above the rec. pressure.

Might want to edit your first post to indicate it's a PHEV model if that's the case.
