From Ford again most recent published figures on the C Max Energi is 95 MPGe City and 81 MPGe Hwy. This translates into 345 watt hours per mile and 404 watt hours per mile respectively. Just from owning the car for 10 days and doing local driving meaning up to 20 mile trips to the city, 10 miles in the city, then 20 miles home or 10 mile round trips to the post office I can see using the electric drive in the city is the best return on efficiency. At one point I hit 70 mpg charging and using this cycle.

Long story short, after 7 days of driving we have only used 3.5 gallons of fuel. The EV only mode capability of the C Max Energi is a winning combination. I think I have a real winner here even if the colder winter temperatures are reducing fuel economy. I am going to top off the batteries on the 15th in preparation for a quick trip to Oklahoma, Texas, thence home. The car technically is not even broke in yet. It will be by the time I return from my trip.
