The manual recommends the vehicle be run for 30 minutes "every few months" to keep the hybrid battery charged. I think once every 6-8 weeks would be my suggestion if you have someone that can do it...

It's probably not related to the battery, more likely engine improvements and system software tweaks. Our gen was 245HP (engine) + 50HP (battery), the new gen is rated 259HP (engine) + 49HP...

In any case whether mpg goes up, holds steady, or dips, just imagine how bad it is for all the regular gas powered cars in stop-and-go. Their numbers drop so deep it's like a black hole, decent mpg...
