Can a 2010 Ford Fusion Go 1000 Miles on One Tank of Gas?

Have you ever heard of a “hypermiler”? It is a person who specializes at getting a lot of miles per gallon out of a vehcile. In other words, a fuel efficiency expert. They use Eco-Driving techniques to maximize operational efficiency. Recent studies show how you drive to be important and in some cases more important than what you drive in achieving the best fuel economy results. A good hypermiler can achieve 30-40% or better fuel economy than an typical driver using typical driving techniques. For instance, the new 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid is rated at 41 MPG on its window sticker. Most of us have difficulty achieving even the stated economy of a vehicle. In recent tests and when it was driven by a hypermiler named Wayne Gerdes, the vehicle managed to produce a fuel economy rating of approximatley 70 MPG.

Ford Motor Company is commited to producing fuel efficient vehciles that protect our enviornment and help of to live off our own resources. It is more than just trying to be green. Yes, being green is a goal. But keeping our enviornment green is a much more valuable objective. So Ford’s hottest new vehicle is a cool efficient hybrid! Read more below.

PRESS RELEASE:

Ford Team Aims To Drive 2010 Fusion Hybrid 1,000 Miles on a Single Tank of Gas

– The Ford Fusion Hybrid team will attempt to drive more than 1,000 miles for more than 43 continuous hours – on a single tank of gas, raising money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation in the process

– The most fuel-efficient, mid-sized sedan in America – the Fusion Hybrid driven by a team of Ford hybrid engineers, a fuel efficiency expert and a NASCAR star, will have to achieve an average of at least 57 mpg on the challenge to reach its goal

– By using Eco-Driving techniques engineers have achieved 70 mpg during testing of the Ford Fusion Hybrid in preparation for the challenge

– Consumers can improve their own vehicle’s fuel economy performance is by adopting Ford’s “Eco-Driving” tips used for the 1,000-Mile Challenge

DEARBORN, Mich., April 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — This weekend, the 2010 Ford (NYSE: F) Fusion Hybrid is being put to the ultimate fuel-efficiency test. A team of drivers, including NASCAR star Carl Edwards and world-record breaking hypermiler Wayne Gerdes, will attempt to drive more than 1,000 miles on a single tank of gas, raising money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation in the process.

The 1,000-Mile Challenge starts at around 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 25, from Mount Vernon, Va., and ends the morning of Monday, April 27, in Washington, D.C. The team will drive for more than 43 hours continuously to reach the 1,000-mile goal. The drivers will do stints of between two and three hours each and will have regular breaks to ensure safe driving is maintained. Already rated as the most fuel-efficient, mid-sized sedan in America, the Fusion Hybrid will need to average at least 57 mpg to achieve its goal. During preliminary testing in preparation for this challenge, Ford engineers have reached as much as 70 mpg in the Fusion Hybrid by using Eco-Driving techniques.

The team will run clinics for media and customers over the weekend in the Fusion Hybrid, conducting interviews and vehicle demonstrations on how simple techniques can make a significant difference to real world fuel economy numbers.

The Fusion Hybrid being used in the challenge will be a factory produced model with no modifications or alterations and will run on regular 87 octane gas.

The team will be uploading regular images and video to YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/fordstory), Flickr (http://www.flickr.com/photos/fordmotorcompany), Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/people/Kristopher-Spencer/1228149870), Twitter (http://twitter.com/Ford), and http://www.media.ford.com.

Ford is taking on the 1,000-Mile Challenge for a number of reasons:

* To demonstrate Ford’s commitment to be the best or amongst the best in fuel economy in every vehicle segment in which it competes;

* To highlight the crucial role the driver plays in maximizing fuel economy and demonstrate how consumers can make a difference through Eco-Driving;

* To raise awareness about Eco-Driving and how the Fusion Hybrid contributes to it with the ability to run up to 47 mph in pure electric mode; and

* To raise awareness and funds for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

The 1,000-Mile Challenge team comprises of:

* Wayne Gerdes, the world-record breaking hypermiling champion and founder of http://www.cleanmpg.com;

* Carl Edwards, the NASCAR race star who recently bought his own 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid;

* Sherif Marakby, graduate of Maryland University and Ford hybrid chief engineer;

* Gil Portalatin, Ford hybrid applications manager and Ford Fusion Hybrid team leader;

* Tom Rolewicz, one of Ford’s top calibration experts and hybrid system expert; and

* Steve Burke, Ford product expert on hybrid applications

The mileage-maximizing techniques that the Ford team will use and pass on to consumers include:

* Slowing down and maintaining even throttle pressure;

* Gradually accelerating and smoothly braking;

* Maintaining a safe distance between vehicles and anticipating traffic conditions;

* Coasting up to red lights and stop signs to avoid fuel waste and brake wear;

* Minimize use of heater and air conditioning to reduce the load on the engine;

* Close windows at high speeds to reduce aerodynamic drag;

* Applying the “Pulse and Glide” technique while maintaining the flow of traffic;

* Minimize excessive engine workload by using the vehicle’s kinetic forward motion to climb hills, and use downhill momentum to build speed; and

* Avoiding bumps and potholes that can reduce momentum

The Mission:

“To inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.”

Club History

Since 1946, Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland has been providing thousands of young people throughout the Portland metro area with affordable, high-quality after-school and summer programs designed to help them develop the qualities needed to become responsible citizens and leaders. The Clubs offer kids what they want the most: safe, clean, fun places to go when they’re not in school; caring adults who respect and guide them; and challenging programs that teach them life skills and keep them engaged in productive activities.

The Inukai Boys and Girls Club

In October 2006, dozens of community leaders and investors joined with more than 300 Boys & Girls Club youth to witness the ground-breaking event of the Inukai Family Boys & Girls Club. Preceding the ground-breaking, Club Kids and guests were honored with a visit by Former Secretary of State, General Colin Powell, who took time to share a personal message for the Kids before participating in the ceremony.

The ground-breaking marked an important event in the Hillsboro Club’s history. With the investment of many community leaders and donors, the Hillsboro Boys & Girls Club was able to undertake a capital expansion project, adding an additional 12,000 square feet to the existing 8,100 square foot facility.

The new Club has been renamed the Inukai Family Boys & Girls Club after the family of Richard Inukai, Board Chair of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland Metropolitan Area and major contributor to the Clubs operations and expansion effort. Mr. Inukai is also owner of Dick’s MacKenzie Ford and Dick’s Country Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Hillsboro.
