WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA/UPDATE) -- We have an update on a Consumer Reports investigation that uncovered EPA mileage tests used to rate the fuel efficiency of hybrid vehicles came up short.

The consumer group tested 315 hybrid vehicles, including the Ford C-Max, and found that many of them got far fewer miles per gallon than the window sticker claimed.

Now Ford says it will offer free software upgrades to owners of its 2013 hybrid vehicles.

Ford says the changes are designed to improve mileage in real world driving conditions.
