Lincoln Aviator: Hybrid Vehicle Operation / Driving to Optimize Fuel Economy

Note: Having your engine running is not always an indication of inefficiency. In some cases, it is actually more efficient than driving in electric mode.

Your fuel economy should improve throughout your hybrid's break-in period. As with any vehicle, your driving habits and accessory usage can significantly impact your fuel economy. For best results, keep these tips in mind:

  • Keep the tires properly inflated and only use the recommended size.
  • Aggressive driving increases the amount of energy required to move your vehicle. In general, you can achieve better fuel economy with mild to moderate acceleration and deceleration. Moderate braking is particularly important since it allows you to maximize the energy captured by the regenerative braking system.

Additional Tips:

  • Do not carry extra loads.
  • Be mindful of adding external accessories that may increase aerodynamic drag.
  • Observe posted speed limits.
  • Perform all scheduled maintenance.
  • There is no need to wait for your engine to warm up. The vehicle is ready to drive immediately after starting.
