QX50 Hybrid Fuel Economy

I am a new owner of the QX50 Hybrid and although I love my new car I am seriously disappointed in the gas mileage. Wondering if it's just my vehicle or if others are having the same results. I have 1500 miles (I've had it 5 weeks) on the car now and my avg. mileage is 18.8mpg. I would say my driving is split to 70% city and 30%hwy. I wish I hadn't gotten the hybrid... on my lease I priced out the same options on both hybrid and v6 and it was $40 more per month for the hybrid. Based on the window sticker estimates I should be getting 26-28mpg and if that was the case it would more than make up the price difference. A few days ago I brought the vehicle in for them to check if there was something wrong with it because of the low fuel economy and they gave me a qx50 3.5 to drive for 2 days. I GOT THE SAME EXACT MPG!!! That is so wrong!! The hybrid should at least be getting better mpg than the 3.5, don't you think?? I am considering going in and demanding a new car in the 3.5 engine or maybe they should make up the price difference to me?? it's $1560 more for my 39 month lease! Anyone have any advice or similar issues... or on the flip side is anyone driving the Hybrid and actually getting the mileage they should be getting?

thats really weird. I know there's a break in thats needed to get it producing the numbers its supposed to and with the miles you have it should be doing that. have you asked the dealer what might be the issue?

You do seem to be doing more city driving than highway driving which could have an impact. Other than that, it could just be your driving style. You will get the best results if you accelerate smoothly instead of jumping off the line.

I am aware of the Hybrid driving style, We have owned a Prius for years. When I bought the car I told the dealer that the majority of my driving was around town and becuase of the MPG listed on the window sticker that was the main reason I chose it. I Should get 26mpg in city. Either of you have the QX50 Hybrid?? What is your MPG?

I don't know much about the QX50 hybrid but that doesn't sound normal

That is POOR mileage.

I also don't have a hybrid, but the 18.8 mpg that you are getting is closer to what the gas powered version of the QX50 should be getting so I think there is something that isn't right.

That's what I first thought, but I looked and they don't have the QX50 listed at all, let alone the hybrid version. I checked the EX but those numbers aren't hybrid so they don't help at all.
