I find that for the first 8 months I had my 300h, I was very fixated on trying to match the EPA estimates for MPG. Sometimes I did, but not always. Ever since then, I haven't regularly set the fuel consumption gauge and I don't even check my MPG after refuelling very often, as I know the car gets very good mileage for a sedan its size. I'm just enjoying all the great features of the car and the beautiful ride, and I find driving the car that way much more pleasurable. Just curious, are others following the same trend?

I have had my 2013 ES300h for 10 months, 7,000 miles, and still monitor it, I just drive it normally and I record my mileage on fuelly.com. I average 37 MPG which I feel is fantastic for a car this size and the driving conditions in my area.
I have 11400 miles on my car and I am still obsessed with my MPG after refueling. When I am not in a hurry I am always interested to see when the engine turns on or off. I am always watching the flow of energy monitor, and the trip graph, and how full the hybrid battery is. I try to keep my average MPG around 40 or better if possible.To me it is an addiction. It is like playing a game.
I'm coming up to 1 year, and over 9K on mileage. Trying to get the max mpg isn't a priority anymore since I know I've been getting around 37-38 mpg. I've only gotten above 40 mpg once, and that's when I was really really trying. Now, I just go with the flow of traffic.
