    Badsax mentioned something like that about his, too.

    "The MKZ is the only hybrid that can be battery only at 70mph" or somesuch.. replace "70" with [some surprisingly high speed] if you wish..

    We're getting around 27 MPG. And that's running between 75 to 95.

    Back and forth to Fort Worth, with about 90% highway at 70, we're getting 26/26.5 MPG, with no idling to keep the AC going in the summer.
