A groaning sound might be a bearing, does it do it with both right and left turns? Does speed increase the sound during the turns? If you have AWD and the sound is present on both right and left turns, it could be a problem with the differential. There has been a history of noise coming from the rear suspension during turns in the FEH/MMH also. I never had that problem with my '05 FEH so I can't describe the noise.
Regenerative brakes come from the Traction Motor inside the transaxle (eCVT). The brakes are normal Disc brakes on the rear and the front wheel are what is used to turn the traction motor into a generator upon deceleration or applying the brake pedal. In other words regenerative brakes is when the traction motor is turned into a generator to slow you down in addition to the actual brake pads.
If your premium gas does not contain ethanol, it might be better than E-10 to use. All regular and premium fuels here in Florida contains ethanol.

Hi Scott I found this
I found this link:
"Two marinas, both on Oahu, already are buying ethanol-free gasoline from Aloha Petroleum, and at least three others intend to when their tanks are prepared."

Gary, I just clocked 28.7
I just clocked 28.7 on a tank of regular Unleaded. I'm happy to report it is me and not the gas! =)
Not sure what is making the groaning sound... It happens at low speeds, on 90 deg turns, and sounds like a horror movie creaking door about 1.5 sec long. I know it happens on Right turns, not sure about Left.
Could it be hardened shocks? The car sat for 1 year with very little driving before I bought it.. That might also account for the slow start to good gas mileage. (That or me learing how to use the hairpin gas pedal to accelerate.)
I know where the Rainbow Marina "gas station" is, not sure if I can fill up my car there, though. Will have to check it out next time I am down that direction of the island.

I have a comment for anyone
I have a comment for anyone looking at possibly purchasing the Ford Escape Hybrid. I purchased my previously owned 2006 AWD model in April 2008. I have to say the AWD is great in the snow. I live in Washington State and it never has slipped in the snow. I have been very impressed with its capabilities. In regards to the mileage, in the winter we are averaging only around 25-27 with mostly short trips. The longer trips even in the winter will bring the mileage up to around 29-30. This past summer we averaged 30-34 on mixed highway and around town driving. I actually believe the vehicle does better on the highway. The mileage seems to constantly improve. The only thing I wish could be improved is adding plug in capability with a larger battery pack. I am a very happy owner and this was my first Ford to own. The quality is outstanding. Anyone know of any companies that do modifications? Change SOC, add additional batteries with charger, etc. I want a plug-in hybrid!!

There are a few companies
There are a few companies that have converted the FEH to the plug-in Lithium batteries, but the cost is about $30,000 right now. A week or so ago there was a converted '08 FEH for sale on eBay for $60,000. The price should come down by the time your stock battery is due for replacement which could be around 300,000 miles or more. I'm holding on to my '05 FWD FEH even after purchasing a '09 FWD FEHL for this reason.
We may see battery technology increase and pricing going down much faster to stimulate the economy with our tax dollars. We also may even get additional tax credits for a plug-in conversion down the road. That would automatically increase the value of used FEH/MMH vehicles.
