Hypermileage: Ford Fusion?

Ford Fusion Hybrid Gets 1,445 Miles on Single Tank of Gas

So says Gas2.o, which adds that “in an effort to promote their new Fusion Hybrid, Ford launched its mid-size family sedan on a 1,000 mile journey with just a single tank of gas. That was on Saturday, April 25th. Yesterday, the 28th, the Fusion finally ran out of dinosaur juice after a staggering 1,445.7 miles on a single tank of gas over the course of three days. This publicity stunt… showcased the Fusion Hybrid’s ability to get an average gas mileage of 81.5 mpg“.

Now, they were using a NASCAR driver and spending time coasting and being very careful about even acceleration, but it is still remarkable.  The EPA-certified mpg for the Fusion is 41 mpg.  I’d buy one.
