Average MPG was exactly 36 over those 2804 miles.

I drive primarily in ECO mode. The speed limits shown are what is posted on the highways. I usually go 2-3 MPH over those limits.

Fueling Fillups:

#1: From Coppell TX to Joplin MO - 6/2 10.208 Gallons @ $4.299/G
distance driven 348 miles - MPG 35.5 - Highway Speeds 65-70 MPH
I did have a couple of days driving local before the trip start of 18 miles
So for the overall fillup I got 35.8 MPG

#2: From Joplin MO to Saint Louis MO - 6/4 10.135 Gallons @ $4.399/G
distance driven 370 miles - MPG 36.5 - Highway Speeds 60-70 MPH

#3: From Saint Louis MO to Cedar Rapids IA - 6/6 10.225 Gallons @ $4.449/G
distance driven 446 miles - MPG 43.5 - Highway Speeds 60-65 MPH
about 93 miles driving around in Saint Louis before heading to Iowa and a lot was on electric only mode

#4: Driving around Cedar Rapids Iowa with two side round trips one to Iowa City
and one to Waterloo - 6/8 6.268 Gallons @ $4.549/G
distance driven 248 miles - MPG 39.6 - Highway Speeds 55-65 MPH

#5: From Cedar Rapids IA through Dubuque and then onto Downtown Chicago
Stayed with my Sister on the Lakefront so Maverick was parked there for three days
Then departed for Memphis TN but filled up in Tuscola IL - 6/12 11.356 Gallons @ $5.149/G
distance driven 429 miles - MPG 37.8 - Highway Speeds 55-75 MPH

I used Slippery Mode on the start of the leg from Chicago to Memphis as it was raining pretty good for about 150 miles otherwise I was in ECO mode.

#6: From Tuscola IL to Memphis TN - 6/12 12.848 Gallons @ $4.349/G
distance driven 395 miles - MPG 30.7 - Highway Speeds 65-75 MPH

This leg got the worst MPG because the AC was on constantly because temps were in the high 90's and speeds were 78 MPH. Also as mentioned below by s.ober I did have considerable head winds on this leg.

#7: Around Memphis TN then filled up in Texarkana TX - 6/14 10.906 Gallons @ $4.499/G
distance driven 368 miles - MPG 33.7 - Highway Speeds 65-70 MPH

#8: From Texarkana TX to Coppell TX - 6/14 6.396 Gallons @ $4.559/G
distance driven 200 miles - MPG 31.3 - Highway Speeds 70-75 MPH

As seen above lower speeds and outside temperatures can help the Hybrid Maverick get some very good MPG numbers. I love that I got 36 MPG over the entire 2804 miles.

I have the base XLT (no lux) and the seats were very comfortable. In fact they were super comfortable compared to my previous 2015 Honda Fit and the wife's 2009 Honda CR-V.

Having cruise control made the driving very enjoyable.

On my long driving days I traveled:

6/2: 346 miles
6/3: 361 miles
6/5: 317 miles
6/8: 272 miles
6/12: 542 miles
6/14: 503 miles

Those last two were from Chicago to Memphis then from Memphis to Coppell.

Overall I love my Maverick.

Was this an eco boost or Hybrid

Ive noticed going down grades with CC on I loose on the regen bar compared to just letting it do its thing, but the speed goes UP with CC on.

Have you noticed that?

I've driven our two Prius' about 285k miles total. Headwinds make a huge difference, so that might account for some variance too. Included in the trips were two from Oregon to Iowa. Many from Oregon to Utah and Oregon to S CA.

What I see is with Cruise Control ON and going down hills the set cruise speed is maintained by using the regen (Motor Generator) of the eCVT to charge the HV battery.

So I have not ever seen what you are asking about.

On one leg of my trip going from Dubuque IA to Chicago Android Auto (Google Maps) put me on Wisconsin County Road "W" and that road had some roller coaster hills. Cruise set to 55 maintained that speed and used regen to do so.

True. Now that you mentioned it I do recall that head winds were on the 30.7 MPG leg.

This past Tuesday took a 35 mile interstate trip with a 20 mph tailwind = 48.3 mpg.
On the way back same wind but now a headwind = 33.1 mph. Speeds were between 68-72 mph

I have. I can always get better mileage without the cruise on, but hate to because I like using cruise. Ford needs to work on the programming there because you should get similar or even better mileage with cruise.

Tbh that's not too far off from my EB highway mileage. Especially your Texas leg. I managed 33 Mpg coming from cleveland Ohio to san antonio going 70-75 until I got into Texas and it dropped to about 31.5. Those Texas roads suck imo.

It's nice to know I can sorta hang with hybrids on the highway but I know I can't even sniff the hybrid mpg in the city.

Are you using a tonneau cover?

For one of the experts, don’t the accessories like steering and AC run off the 12 volt which is charged by the alternator which wouldn’t affect gas mileage?

There is no alternator in a Hybrid Maverick.

The 12 volt battery is charged by the HV battery via a DC-to-DC converter.

The AC in the Hybrid is powered by the HV battery.

In all Mavericks the accessories that use the 12 volt system (EcoBoost or Hybrid) and the EcoBoost ICE engine to power AC, Alternator, other things should be close to the same. However I do think that the Hybrid's AC efficiency and the 12 volt charging system will be in it's favor.

Using the more high power systems like the AC will affect gas mileage in either Maverick.

On my Hybrids i get 37-39 MPG consistently while driving 225 miles/day 90% highway at avg speed of 75 MPH. Those numbers are hand calculated and a combined total miles of 14000 miles!
