Went to Stamford, CT where I stayed in a hotel for 3 nights, and from there I drove to visit my family in Rye NY.  Saturday I went down to Brooklyn for the day and back.  Lots of traffic in NY on FDR and other places, and the Cmax shined on EV power through all the slow stuff.

 

Sunday I went to Croton point park on the Hudson for the day and back to Rye every night basically (Saturday also) to spend with the family.  I drove back to Stamford at the end of the day and recharged the car back up overnight at the hotel.  Only 1 outlet found on the top floor of the garage, same place the car rental guy hangs out to shop vac his cars in the morning.

 

The new 2017 did really well, came in at 72.2 mpg for the entire trip with about 4 charges burned in total.  MPG wise the car is showing 49.1 mpg on the ice (RAFE), meaning a full tank, when I do fill it back up (wasn't full by the way when I started, more like 3/4), should show around 688 miles range -- maybe more as I'll be burning some more gas this week in the city in Boston here.

 

Attached are pictures below for your viewing pleasure  :camera:

 

Lifetime the car is batting 70.5mpg (old 2013 was 69.4 lifetime in about 4 years), you can see trip 2 picture (my lifetime stats) plus the total gas burned since day 1 in the last picture.  I take pictures of the trip2 meter when it rolls over to keep track of things.  EV miles has rolled over 3 times now, so its 3357.5 EV miles out of 5682.1 miles today (notice somehow its 0.1 miles longer than the odometer of the car, go figure?!  Anyway, the hours have rolled over once, so its 165 hours of driving and change.  Total kwh hours out of the HVB have not rolled over.  HVB average about 35 miles per charge per the car, I do basically somewhere in the 30's, my most was 37 miles on one charge, which I think I already posted.

Yup, filled the tank today after running some errands.  Driving around Boston yesterday with the ICE at slow speeds brought the RAFE number up even higher to 52...(just confirmed it)

 

Photo of range after I filled up below.  Damn this car is GOOD!  :happy feet:

Couldn't agree with you more Raja!!!  :smile2:

You were absolutely right, in what you wrote in your pm to me... I'm now getting 40-50km per charge, instead of 30-40km.

Now the quest to 60km, as you have done with your new Angel.

I've had my 2017 C-Max Energi for a little over 3 weeks with something close to a 50% freeway (ev later)/50% city driving (EV on) driving ratio -- Avg is around 60MPG, and I think I might be able to get it close to 70MPG as I get better at driving it.   Once/day charge.  Max electric range is currently only showing 24 miles after charge.

Glad to hear it Marlowe!!  All you need to do as you're finding out is concentrate on getting 100% brake score, keep your accelerations down so you have a full blue bar and your speed at 60km or less and you'll make 60km in range if the land is pretty level.  Temperature does make a difference, ideally you want it to be around 25c and of course use no AC as that will take about 5km out of the whole battery's range (55 vs 60km).

 

When you drive the ICE, keep it at 2 white bars acceleration also and your gas range will improve.  If you're doing well a full tank should show around 1000km range.  You will need to not go faster than 110km for that.  If you drive the car in the city only, then the range should be higher as seen above.

 

Best regards and enjoy!!

So you think you can hypermile?  New high score record for me after driving around 150 miles around the city of Boston yesterday. 

 

I just refilled the tank to see the range, remarkable!
