the throttle response is much quicker and 'touchy". Also the rev shift points are pushed well in to the redlines, and you gain the rev matching when downshifting. It also stiffens the wheel.
First of all, give it time. You know there is a break in period as things loosen up. Sheesh. One week? Those hamsters have barely reached puberty yet!How about for Sport Hybrid folks? How much miles and MPG you get in a full tank of gas? I just got the car last week and average 25.4 mpg and got 450 miles in one full tank. It should be more right?
This is what i'm getting. Suprised to see 25mpg's or 450+ on a tank. My drive is 50/50. 20 mins city, 20 min highway, but most of the time it's just 10 min city.I get exactly 20MPG whether in Sport mode or Standard. So I tend to drive in Sport (or personal with Sport engine setting). I think it usually shows mid-high 300's in the range.
Wow, I'm impressed 460 I don't think I got that many miles even on road trips! But then again I keep the car in triple digits.I've noticed on the gasser getting anywhere between 390 and 460 miles depending on how rough you drive it..

I have about 3K miles on mine. Hard core city driving. Mostly stop and go on surface streets. 28.4 mpg is current average. I mostly drive fairly conservatively but won't hesitate to put my foot in it when the mood strikes.
I suspect by next summer the car will have 20K miles on it and should be getting about 30 mpg.
BTW, We all know cold weather with short trip driving really kills fuel economy. Even slightly more so with hybrids. I have spoken to people with other makes and models of hybrids and they confirm this.
I think regular tires instead of RFT can make at least 5%difference and that's what I'll do once the rfts are kaput.
