The Washington Post has an article in today’s edition by Michael S. Rosenwald titled “For Hybrid Drivers, Every Trip Is a Race for Fuel Efficiency“. Wow, that’s so true.
I’ve blogged before about my 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid – which life to date has average a bit over 43 miles per gallon. On the Honda, there are two trip odometers/mileage gauges – one I use for the current tank and reset every fill-up. The other hasn’t been reset “since birth” – and that’s the one showing 43 mpg.
My Honda Hybrid also shows real-time mileage along with boost/charge from/to the batteries. Does make for careful (and fuel efficient) driving – if you’re watching your mileage!
