I wonder what the battery level was before and after the 250 mpg run.

If the battery level is lower at the end than the beginning, then it gives a false impression of better MPG.

The XL1 is a PHEV..

250 MPG seems high; I would surmise closer to 125-175 mpg real world driving, and 200+ mpg only if used as a PHEV and the electricity cost is ignored. Or if you're a hypermiler.
