Misleading MPG

by from CA on November 25, 2013

I've had the 2014 Fusion hybrid for 2 months and driven it approx 4,500 miles. I'm pretty good at driving it efficiently. However, the dashboard Fuel Economy MPG indicator gives a misleading MPG. Every time I fill the gas tank (13.5 gallons) I always reset the Trip 1 mileage counter and reset the dashboard Fuel Economy MPG indicator. When I get the Low Fuel Alarm I always check how I averaged in the Fuel Economy indicator and I consistently get "50 - 52 MPG". Then I check the Trip 1 mileage counter to see how many miles I got out of my tank (and add the remaining estimated gas miles in the tank, usually 50 miles) and I consistently get approx 560 miles. If my math is right, 560 miles from 13.5 gallons of gas is only 41 MPG. However, the Fuel Economy indicator tells me I got 50 MPG. I wonder what kind of "average" Ford uses?

Fusion Hybrid SE is both roomy and fuel saving

I bought a Fusion Hybrid SE recently. Unlike Prius, Fusion Hybrid is much roomy and also fuel saving (it reports fuel usage for each trip from starting the car to stopping the car and most day time drive trips can reach around 47~48 mpg on freeway, not going too fast though). I am also very pleased with its style, comfort and advanced SYNC w/Ford Touch feature that controls via voice over navigation, climate, phone. multimedia. The rear view camera is also a must for safety. I strongly recommend this outstandingly designed Hybrid vehicle.

Incredible car

This is my 2nd Fusion, the first being a 2007 Fusion that I had for 200K miles. After one month of owning a brand new 2014 Fusion Hybrid, I cannot say enough good things about this car. It's more comfortable than my previous Fusion, which was very comfortable, and the technology in this new one blows my mind. From Bluetooth to turn-by-turn navigation (which is far superior to my previous Magellan GPS), this car is everything I would want. My present MPG, which started out at 34.2, is now 36.9 and it goes up every week. On one 21-mile trip in NYC from Bay Ridge, Brooklyn to Jamaica, Queens, 13.7 miles was done on the electric motor for a total MPG of 45.1. On a 90 mile trip on the Taconic Parkway I took this past weekend, which is infamous for being very pretty, very hilly and somewhat unforgiving if you're not paying attention, I averaged 44.1 MPG with the cruise control set to 58 MPH. Presently, filling up my 13.5 gallon tank will get me a total of 514 miles. I expect as the weather gets warmer, my mileage will increase...and I couldn't be happier.

I bought a 2013 Fusion Hybrid. I've had it for 14 months and thought others might want to know how that model did. I love it. I get 45+ MPG. Its a quiet, smooth ride. There have been no mechanical issues. I take it to Ford for routine maintenance. AC cools car quickly. Heater is good. Great brakes. Great acceleration when you stomp on it to enter traffic. I'm 54, so the factory radio is fine, but for the 20+/- year olds, the volume might not be loud enough. Heated leather seats are a must if you live in an area that has actual winter weather. I also recommend the remote starter. When the car starts, the doors lock - good safety feature. Good trunk space for a hybrid - back seats fold down so the fishing rods can go on the trip. I could not be more positive about this car.

I own the 2014 ford fusion titanium hybrid and I have had it since sept 2013 I have enjoyed the great gas mileage ,I have averaged 46.6 mpg the reason I can get that is I stay mostly off the highways and use secondary route to get to work and back if you want to get 40 plus mpg you have to remember that this car operates best at speeds of 40mph or slower I live in hilly terrain and have had to change my driving habits in order to get these results but I find it is worth it now when I have to drive on highways at speeds above 60mph I do get anywhere around 38-41mpg . i would recommend buying this car if you mostly do city driving because that's where your going to get the most fuel mileage as far as the ride it is very smooth and quiet the leather heated seats are great in the winter , i also love the idea of an oil change every 10k miles . when you do buy this vehicle it will take some time to get use to how it handles and to learn how to keep it in electric mode ,anyway i hope this helps if you are thinking of buying this vehicle its a really good car

Bought the car on Friday morning and left on a 4 hour road trip the same day. I figured if I did not like the car, we would know by the end of the weekend. Gas mileage on the first tank was not what was hoping for however, I have filled up 3 times since then and gas mileage (calculated manually) has gone up each time, with the last one being 42+ mpg. I am happy with that as my former car was a Prius and while advertised to get 51, I rarely got over 47 without upsetting everyone else on the road. Love everything about the car; ride is great, feature rich, mpg, quiet, looks, etc. My wife does not like that the passenger seat tilts slightly to the rear, but that has been the only complaint. I think of places to go just to be able to drive it again. Wife has a new Cadillac and we both like taking this car rather than hers. Ride is as good, mileage is twice as good.

The last Ford I had was in 1975. Ford had their issues! When I was looking for a Hybrid I went to many dealerships. I chose the Ford Fusion SE Hybrid as the looks great, it is fully loaded and drives & preforms very well. The gas consumption compared to my BMW is about 40% of what I spend on gas. THANK YOU FORD!!

Bought our car new at the beginning of August. We test drove just about every hybrid around and just could not beat the room and comfort of the Fusion. OK, I was disappointed to see that Ford dropped the MPG rating from 47 to a best of 42 but for the room and comfort, we felt that it was worth it along with the fact that the Fusion was over $1000 less than the rest with less features. So we have had the Fusion for over a month. We live in a rural area but my wife works in a local city and has about a 35 mile commute each way on back country roads and four lane main highways plus some city driving. I am very pleased with 46+MPG we are seeing. I figured 40+ would be good but go figure. We drive the car just the same as we drive our other vehicles and do not "baby" the car. Highway speeds of 65 mph and country roads are 50 mph. Couldn't ask for anything more!

I researched for a long time before settling on very few candidates, and Ford Fusion Hybrid being one of them. After purchasing, I found almost everything to be meeting or exceeding expectations. First of all, the ride is very comfortable. The power seats with leather look and work very nicely. The noise for all driving conditions is low, and I was surprised how quiet it is even when I opened all windows on the road (the noise level is definitely much lower than a previous car I drove). The engine performs reasonably well. It accelerates quickly with just a little humming, and makes passing and lane changing easy. The average fuel economy has been meeting EPA estimates. Take note - while a new car has been in dealer's lot, turned on and off, and test driven for short distances, the avg MPG on the dashboard may show just 10 - 20, which is to be expected. Under normal driving after I took ownership, each trip (based on the summary shown in the car for a few seconds after turning off ignition) has been in the high 30s or 40s MPG. The interior design is good, functional, and easy to use, except that some touch buttons are overly sensitive. The touch screen is fine, though. Exterior styling is also nice, and I think it can withstand the test of time. Overall it is an excellent car to have at $30k range!
