I drove down to Florida on a 2000 miles round trip and was averaging 50MPG with 3 people and full luggage. My total fuel cost was $96

Fill up time! Two new records today:
  1. First time including two entire calendar months without a fill-up
  2. Lowest consumption in very cold and wet, or pure winter, conditions, ever (-7 C yesterday to 8 C in October)
Last fill up date: 2019-09-25 (75 days since)
Distance driven: 1602 km (995 miles)
Fuel volume today: 40.55 L (8.9 G-UK, 10.7 G-US)
Fuel consumption since last fill-up: 2.53 L/100km (168 UK-MPG, 93 US-MPG)

Mixed driving EV/HEV, no trips longer than 250 km this period, a few about 220 km motorway.
Also wife have been driving most of the distance. Dew/fogging has required ICE to run quite much on also the many within EV range trips, but try to avoid it as much as possible, while keeping sight and comfort fully acceptable.

Two things I sometimes do that are clearly bad for consumption:
  1. Very many very short trips (1-3 km) when wet or cold (dewing)
  2. High speed motorway driving (>110 km/h)
  3. + That I don't do, or very seldom: Hard acellerations
Low consumption also generally means (compared to pure fossil):
  1. Low toxic gas emissions
  2. Low climate gas emission
  3. Low noise emission
Conclusion:
Except from walking, cycling, local public transport/train - with usually substantially lower comfort and speed - driving an EV is the best choice (some disadvantages on long trips), then a well balanced and effective PHEV, like Ioniq, the second best. Pure fossils and planes are in the bad end of this scale.

Filling up this car is pure pleasure - even though it means I have burnt fossils, also economically. Just love this car, all of it!

With the plug-in mpg is not a very comparable number in my opinion.
But, I've done some long trips with relatively slow speed (90-100 km/h) on hybrid only mode and the number for now seems to be 3.8 l/100km (62 mpg according to google). Weather is cold and I wonder if that number will go low in the summer. I'll be happy if it does.

I've got over 49k on my '17 Ioniq Blue now and notice there is a drop of about 3-5mpg in the winter. I also note that the heater takes more energy in the winter than the AC does in the summer. I'm getting about 54-57 in the winter and 57-63 in the summer time driving about 75% highway, 25% city. MPG seems to really take a dive past 70mph. Our fuel in San Diego, by US standards, is very expensive so this car has made a huge impact in my expenditures. I'm still on my original tires.

I've been on a quest... .1L/100km as 87 octane here is $5.20/USGAL. ($1.30/L)
I fear I'm going to fall short because of this COVID-19
The Universities are closing & I'll need to go pickup my Daughter, which will push me into ICE territory, shattering any chance of my goal.
So far I'm at .3L/100km over a distance of 2569km or in fully understandable terms (785MPG(US)-940MPG(GB)) over a distance of (1600 Miles (rounded up))

I drive a US ioniq hybrid SEL and use regular unleaded. Mostly flat elevation. With intense/focused hyper-miling I hit 66 MPG+
Tonight I nearly got 69 MPG on mixed freeway/highway driving at 55-70 MPH. Hope to get 70 MPG with premium gas 👍

Fill up time! Two new records today:
  1. Longest period between fill-ups ever
  2. Lowest mixed driving consumption since summer 2018 (when I often charged half way plus destionation on medium long trips)
Last fill up date: 2020-03-11 (105 days since!)
Distance driven: 2065 km (1283 miles)
Fuel volume today: 37.4 L (8.2 G-UK, 9.9 G-US)
Fuel consumption since last fill-up: 1.81 L/100km (168 UK-MPG, 129 US-MPG)

Generally mixed driving EV/HEV, no trips longer than 250 km this period, a most about 220 km at motorway speed each. Fewer long and medium long trips due to covid-19 restrictions. Also wife have been driving more than half of the distance. All charging made at home, none at destinations, or halfway, this time.

Again, I think this show that a PHEV may save fuel quite substantially, compared to HEVs/fossils, given this driving pattern. And cost, since now, while petrol is relative low, power is also low priced here, about $0.1 per kWh (household). But, as menioned before, I have to own the car for almost 10 years to save the extra price (I had to pay, 2017) for a PHEV over a HEV (no longer available here, btw).

My averages should be in my signature below.

Given that I haven't learned how to drive the Ioniq yet and that is ALL around town, I'm pretty impressed. Hopefully, as I get used to driving the car in a different way, I can improve on that. Is that what would be expected in town? We are off to the family in the Lake District, from the South Coast in a couple of months so that will be interesting.

The Siggy was a 2.0 CDTi (Diesel) Auto. Quite a big heavy car. My overall return, in the four years that I was running it, was 33 mpg, but that would include the longer runs, which have been sadly lacking as a result of Covid-19. At times, it would cost more than 20p per mile in fuel.
