Wow. Impressive. I have yet to see 55 mpg on mine. What kind of driving? Hwy/city or a mix? Did you use cruise control? What driving mode were you in? How was the terrain?

Now that is truly fantastic, was the drive on flat roads or hilly terrain?

It was mostly highway without cruise control. I just drove slow in the right lane. But then again this was for a short distance for about 40 miles. I think for a more accurate reading I would need to drive more miles?

Was it downhill?

I'm lucky to get 40 MPG. I'm happy though, I averaged about 42 in my Prius. I think the crap they put in California gas has a severe impact on MPG. I got these big heavy feet too and that can't help matters. I do everything I can to break the stereotype that hybrids are slow.

I agree it was that high because of the "reset" and doing it at highway speeds. When I set my SUV over at cruising speeds for a short period of distance, it will read all kinds of crazy high numbers but in a day or so, it averages out with the city commute and goes back to a normal number

I'm averaging about 45-46 mpg after a week of driving. I have a number of hills to negotiate each day. I keep it in Sport mode more often. I am putting about 30 miles a day on the car. After 1 week there is still half a tank. Bottom line is we will all have extra money in our pockets each month if we have changed from a 20 mpg vehicle (like I did) with this car. I like to call the CT200h a hybrid with an attitude.
