Just came back from my long range trip to Indiana and back. My buddy Ansy was following me there with his 2013 Cmax and we found out that the new 2017 Cmax gets around 3 mpg more on average for each segment of the trip. I searched through my phone and found the trip to Indiana from last year with my 2013 Cmax. Below are the pictures, see for yourself. I did go into the ET screen and pull out the fuel burned for the 2017 Cmax for this trip, shows 33.91 gallons.
The trips are very similar, same exact destinations pretty much and the length of the trip is exactly the same amount of days. Varied only by 28 miles over 2k miles.
Bottom line is, the 2017 Cmax gets better gas mileage than the 2013 version And I still had 10% HVB when I got home last night meaning I burned a little bit too much gas -- new strategy I don't like to burn the battery climbing hills if the engine is hot.
