    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.

    Not bad!

    Find any lobsters up there?

    Or Burt's Bees?

    I don't know what else happens in Maine.. That's all I've got.
