Ahhh I miss the days when I had my CT.

To get the numbers equal you'll have to have the F-sport with F-sport wheels

I'm guessing I can do even better when i throw on my winter tires, becuase they are 225 wide instead of 255 in the rear, and they have lower rolling resitance than the summer tires.

Nah, the Executive in Sweden got the same wheel size. 18 inch with 225 front and 255 rear.

My winter tires are stock 17 inch with 225 front and rear.

I'm starting to get impressed by the fuel consumption in the hybrid

A few images to show the figures at the bottom.
Today I got a consumtion of 4,0 liters per 100km when driving a strech of about 32 kilomters. US figures says a consumption of 58,8 mpg at a strech of about 19 miles.
Route linked on map here:

http://kart.finn.no/?lng=9.82676&lat...220079,6633349

I also got a very low consumption when driving shorter trips, a few kilomteres or about a mile. Because the car runs on electric power most of the time on short trips. I.E to the store or similar.
Then the consumption is in the 2 liters per 100km range.
About 100mpg..

I've managed 4.7l/100km as best so far for a complete 18km trip. Have done a couple of short runs with 1.8l/100km as best (a 2.5km run).
A lot of regenerative breaking with the paddles makes the battery last a long time.

I haven't tried to use the "manual" mode on the gears yet.
I assume that if you brake with the paddles the enigne will charge the batteries more.

I'm using the metod where I brake early and not very hard, so only the enigne charge and brake becuase of that. That way I can drive without using the brakepads when I'm brakeing.

One thing I'm unsure of, that isn't described in the user manual is braking when I use the radar guided cruise control. The car brakes by itself, but not sure if it only uses engine for braking or if it also applies the brakepads.

Yes, that's exactly how it works. Works in "D" too.

The cruise control primarily uses engine braking, but will apply the real brakes if engine braking isn't enough.

Quick update on my IS350 AWD, took a 177 mile trip and averaged 29.4 MPG on Eco mode between fill ups.

That's horrible MPG even for City!

My average for the first 2,000 miles was 24.8 MPG. That's a mix of city and highway, and of Normal and Sport. I'm trying a full tank in Eco mode to see how much it improves.

I've only driven mine 500 miles, but my IS 250 so far is reporting 19.4mpg... which is brutal considering I don't drive fast and I'm in ECO mode the whole time So I'm hoping that thing about "breaking the engines in" is right on.

It's weird how everyone is varying so much. Unless you are doing all city driving 19.4mpg is pretty low. Seems weird since 2.5 liter engine shouldn't take that much fuel, my Acura 3.2 engine gets 27mpg average but that is mostly highway (80/20).

Mine stays at a consistent 24.5 to 24.7 MPG and that is half city half highway. But then again I dont drive like an @55hole
