This time, Ford's facing a hybrid lawsuit. This lawsuit is far from unique. I've heard of others. It seems that a lot of hybrids aren't hitting mileage estimates.


Many are. For many years I've subscribed to and posted to In general I've found my numbers tend to be a tiny bit above their averages, probably because I try a bit harder. After 7 cars, I'm fairly confident in their numbers.

Take a look at the combined rating for the Fusion Hybrid. 41.1 now.

I've not had a car Since my 1994 Camry that varied much if any from the EPA estimates. My current car I get a combined 28 average 28. Same as the site average. We have a 2007 Camry hybrid, same result, combined matches this site. is the real world results. About the same as CU and others.

I can get more or less if I want to, by trying harder, or in different areas with fewer hills. I'm sure there are situations where a Fusion Hybrid can average 47 mpg.

As for their EPA ratings? I think Ford is completely FOS.

Don;t get me wrong, I love the car. Ford did a great job on it. Looks very nice, quality interior, great room. Nice job. But don't BS me.
