    I have driven a plug in hybrid for more than a year. It is true that how you drive makes a great difference. More than half of my trips are short enough to be electric only and I have an overall lifetime average mpg of 115. On the present tank I am averaging 150 mpg. Those who regularly have longer trips will not realize such benefits. Those with even more short trips may use little or no gasoline.

    One can get even better mpg with careful driving methods. Those who are not careful when they drive must not expect the best mpg.
