with that diesel and the electric motors (100% available torque @ 0 rpms), im surprised it doesn't have more! im sure a few limiting modifications can be changes to make that sucker burn rubber like you've never seeen...

150 miles per imperial gallon would be something like 125 miles per US gallon

I think it's the ongoing plug-in hybrid MPG test issue. MPG tests take place over a certain number of miles, plug-in hybrids get a certain number of fuel-free miles at the beginning of the test. Then the engine kicks on and uses fuel for the last part of the test. Resulting in an odd figure.

Not entirely a good figure to use, they need to start incorporating the energy stored in the batteries at the beginning of the test somehow.
