    I had a 2006 Highlnader that got between 16-22, bought this 2008 in 2017 with 38k miles on it and my range is 24-28 and I live in the foothills of Tucson. For the fun of it, I reset the miles since last fill up in town and drove around 30 flat miles and hit 30.2.

    Tons of things affect the mpg, whether you're in Econ mode, accelerating quickly to speed limit and then making sure to stay in the battery zone, using cabin heat or a/c. I'm sure I'm forgetting about a dozen things, point is you can't expect or get 27 in the city being ignorant, there's a lot of tips and tricks to it - I'm not sayingthat you are or aren't.

    The ecu also learns your driving habits and \\\"prefers\\\" them as it adjusts its programming, so once you've figured out how to maximize mpg to your liking, then an ecu refresh is in order to purge old habits or trail and error.
