Just filled up my tank this morning (regular unleaded from Safeway) and decided to attempt to get the best MPG I could on the way to work. Kept it in econ mode the entire 26 miles (18 of which was interstate), and manually put it in EV (all electric) mode whenever I had 5 or more bars on my battery. Some of the interstate was stop and go traffic, but not too heavy (tail end of rush hour). Used regen paddles whenever I knew I was going to need to slow down, and used ACC on occasion at highways speeds. I drive an EX with no extra weight in the vehicle other than my laptop bag. 51 degrees out and managed to get 55.1 MPG. I am very happy with the results. Thinking of video taping my dash on a future trip so I can see how using the regen paddles and the acceleration/breaking impacts the MPG (was pretty noticeable at times when I was looking at the dash and monitoring it during my drive).
