At 72 mph, on the eco cruise setting, I have been getting around 42-44 MPG on the instant readout. If you drop it to 65, and the road is flat, you can run in EV only mode for a few miles. Once the battery is exhausted, it will recharge and start over again. I know Ford has been saying up to 62 MPH in EV only mode, but it seems to be able to go a bit higher. At least in the 70s if you are going downhill.
