Good luck with that - the RXh is not the Accord PHEV. Lexus already designed the hybrid system to be as efficient as possible, so any attempt to trick it into better mpg overall is futile. The B mode...

Could be the gas engine cutting in and out, since that's about the speed where it will go into EV "stealth mode." There is a slight tug each time the engine starts back up. If you had a tachometer...

I bet it IS the 12V battery. Make sure it's connected tight and the terminals are clean. If the weather is cold, the 12V battery can run down easily. I've had mine die by forgetting to turn off a map...
