If you never exceed the pure electric range, then no gasoline is ever used, hence the infinite MPG claim.

It's also worth noting that the wheel-to-well efficiency of electric power compares favorably to conventional fossil fuels.
well not exactly, if you only ever use electricity you have 31 miles per charge, or i guess 31 MPGe...

It runs for 31 miles on electric only before it does

So if your commute is more than 31 miles I guess you will end up using the gas engine.

31 miles is perfect as it is just about the average daily commute for people going to work and back, even if you go beyond that you're still better off than those running full petrol setups.
