Fuel Saving Tips

Ford Hybrid mileage helper

The first time your engine starts up shift the transmission to low gear for 1 second. This reprograms the computer and uses much less gas while the engine warms up. This makes a big difference on short trips. my mileage went up 15 mpg on the 2 mile trip to the grocery store. I'm averaging 52.5 on my 2013 focus that is not a plug in.
