I think that it does get good mileage in mountanious area. I think that the car is lite and does offer the best efficiency with the big load of going up. And does not use fuel going down.

An engine with medium load is not using the power at maximum efficiency.

Just like most people say that to get best MPG on flat, they use gears 1-2-5 with gas pedal almost to the floor. Accelerate fast to cruise using the maximum time possible.

Personnaly I think that using this method is good for MPG but bad for the engine and transmission (peak tork from engine and IMA in that situation will cause wear)

The MPG shown is only mesuring fuel used for the trip. Then for display, it is divided by distance. The fuel injector "On" time represent the fuel mesurement.
