2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid gets 1,445 miles on one tank of gas

2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid 1,000 Mile Challenge Ford’s recent publicity stunt with their excellent Fusion Hybrid had a lofty goal – 1,000 miles on a tank of fuel.  What happened was nothing short of spectacular.  With some neato hypermiling tricks from the experts, the team blew away the goal by over 40%.  When the tank finally ran dry, the Fusion Hybrid had travelled an incredible 1,445 miles.  That’s just a single tank, folks.  The average for the trip was a stunning 81.5 MPG – roughly double the Fusion Hybrid’s city EPA estimate.  That oughta get Ford some positive publicity, ya?
