As I recall, Recumpence hypermiled and modified his C-Max, but only slightly beat the EPA rating.

Here is a 2013 for sale in Flagstaff:

Is there anything useful there, except for confirming the miles? I wanted to see the lifetime MPG! Also, I cropped 44% from the top and bottom. Why do people take pictures holding their phone the wrong way?

246,000 miles for $4,000. It does look clean:

The owner said he bought it to commute from Flagstaff to Phoenix and back, only ever drove it on the highway, but does not need to commute anymore.

That is about 50,000 miles a year! If he managed to average 75 MPH he spent four weeks a year driving! I guess that two hours a day does not sound too bad, but every single day!

Craigslist shows two 2013s for $6,500. This one has 132,000 miles. The other has 145,000 (and boasts a 8.5-second 0-60. That was fast in 2013? )

Here is one with 92,000 miles for $8,000. I would accept 40,000 miles to save $1,500. Is that fair?

Check out this HX! Did they take pictures during a dust storm?!
