I purchased a Vue Green Line last Friday. With the 1st 272 miles, I averaged 28.7 mpg. I try to drive cautiously, but I'm certainly not a hypermiler.
#4 of 84 27.4 mpg on 2nd tank

2nd tank of gas average 27.4 mpg over 311 miles. I was using cruise control in some hilly terrain which caused more downshifting than I like. I think this caused a decrease in mileage. So far very pleased with the VGL. I seem to be getting better mileage than some others that I've read about, but I don't feel like I'm driving out of the ordinary.
#5 of 84 29.75mpg for First Tank
Dec 13, 2006 (6:56 am)
1st tank of gas with 379.9 miles and I averaged 29.75mpg. Not bad for the first tank. Considering that most new vechicles need at least 2000 - 4000 miles for the engine to settle and that winter gas gives less gas mileage - I will take a 29.75. Hopefully, we will be able to get that number over the 30 mark.
By the way, my driving for the first tank consisted of 50% highway and 50% local driving with easy accelerations and decelerations.

Our first 2 tanks got 23mpg. We have 2,000 miles on the car now and most tanks are averaging 26-27mpg.

1st tank - 14.25 gallons - 409 miles - 28.75mpg
* Drove normal without taking into consideration the hybrid eco and charge/assist gages.
2nd tank - 14.38 gallons - 364 miles - 24.82mpg
* drove cautiously with defrosters on the entire time (oops). Tried to drive more efficiently, but didn't consider eco and charge/assist gages.
3rd tank - Read the quick start guide (Will report in a few days the results.)
* Tried to drive without cruise control and defrosters on, tried to maintane the eco light as much as possible.

With the cruise control issue resolved (for the past two weeks - knock on wood) and the Hybrid performing well - here are some summary numbers.
9 Weeks of ownership - 3660 Miles - 10 Fillups - Avg 29.75 mpg. Hybrid is driven about 90 miles to and from work each day with a combination of 50% highway and 50% stop and go. Best mpg 34.5 and worst 25.0
Here are the 10 fillups - 29.75, 30.20, 31.14, 30.90, 25.04, 34.54, 25.73, 31.06, 29.69, 32.16
Average $2.246 per gallon of regular comes out to 7.55 cents per mile for gas.
I am very satisfied with the numbers.

4 Months of ownership - 8325 Miles - 21 Fillups - Avg 30.58 mpg. Hybrid is driven about 90 miles to and from work each day with a combination of 50% highway and 50% stop and go. Best mpg 34.5 and worst 25.0
With the up tick in gas prices the past few weeks my
average $2.293 per gallon of regular has gone up. However, the better mpg has caused my cost per mile for gas to go down to 7.50 cents.
The warmer weather is great for this hybrid.
A few interesting facts:
My best tank averaged: 34.54mpg
Farthest on a single tank without running out of gas: 510.9 miles
13 out of the 21 tanks have averaged over 30mpg.
6 out of the 21 tanks have averaged over 32mpg.
Goal to average 30+mpg for the first 10,000 miles of the Hybrid.
I love my Hybrid Vue.
