Hi Wayne, i’ve had a new Niro HEV for a few months now. It’s a french « premium » model which is the highest trim and comes with 18" inch alloys (should be equivalent to US Touring trim from what I understood. As far as fuel economy is concerned, i’m averaging 5.6L/100 which is 42 MPG after 5000 kms. I try to hypermile when I can of course (P&G, DWL..) I over-inflated tires to 3.2 bars (3.5 would be max sidewall for the Michelin). Can I expect a better result ? (I mean without shutting AC or heating down ) As as aside, from what I observed, what is killing good results are very short drives (where you can easily be under 30 MPG if less than 10 kilometers) and the vehicle not changing to the upper gear. This is rather common on highways where it happens to stay in 5th gear for loooong seconds for no reason before switching to 6th. Now i drive every highways section that has clean traffic in Sport manual mode forcing the car to remain in 6th Gear.
