In a response to complaints about the C-Max Hybrid not reaching its advertised fuel economy ratings of 47/47/47, Ford is reducing the projected consumption and reimbursing customers based on the difference.

The EPA said the 2013 Ford C-Max would be relabeled under its new ratings system, to reflect estimated fuel economy of 40 miles per gallon on the highway, 45 mpg in the city and 43 mpg combined. Previously, the C-Max was rated at 47 mpg highway, city and combined.

Ford said it will send checks to C-Max customers to make up the difference in fuel costs - $550 to owners and $325 to lessees.

I wonder what those numbers might have been with Kathie driving. I'd hazard a guess to say she would have come pretty close.
