Only 8 miles to a charge?

I've got a 2013 CMax Energi with only 72,000 miles currently. My battery will only charge to give me 8 miles. Yes. That's right. Eight miles to a charge. At around 47,000 miles the miles per charge started dropping from the 24-25 mile range to around 14-15 miles per charge. I took it to the dealer. They said nothing wrong with battery. That is NORMAL depletion. I have returned to dealer recently showing them the 8 miles per charge. Again they tell me that is NORMAL. It must be the way I am driving. Yeah right. I asked about the battery warranty. When I bought the car, I believe the battery warranty was for 150,000 miles.... the dealer (Fort Mill Ford in SC) says yeah... if they go bad they will replace. But says mine aren't bad.

On a sidenote, I still am getting good hybrid combined mileage. Worst is 38mpg and at times get 44mpg.

Anyone have any insight on the 8 miles per charge?
