2020 CR-V EX-L Hybrid
Lol now that would be something to see. A CRV going down the highway with a sail attached.We were 65 yesterday, but that had nothing to do with the temperature, it was the wind speed.
If I could figure a way to step a mast on my CR-V I could probably break the sound barrier without burning any fuel.
The hybrid CAN achieve great mileage, but once you stray outside the conditions it's optimized for it suffers.
But that's OK with me, as long as I understand what's going on.
One pro tip I tried that worked really well is drafting Semi trailers on the highway. Set up ACC at 70+ mph, Set follow distance to the lowest setting (1 bar) and find a semi that's going at a good clip and stay behind them as much as you can. It gave me a few extra mpg. Gotta be careful not to freak out the semi driver tho. If they show signs of getting nervous just find another one or change semis every now and then.
But that all comes back to wind resistance. I got 41-42 mpg going 220 hwy miles that way.
