We had to visit Somerville this morning.. What a bummer! Wall-to-wall cars, buses and trucks!
Absolutely the worse place in the world to try for some MPGs..
I was only concentrating on staying alive! Forgetting all about Hypermiles! (We did have the ECO mode ON).

But, I was totally amazed at how much EV we were getting.. Even up some of the hills!
Best of all, when we were heading home, I had the power flow display up,
and saw the ICE was Off, while driving 40 MPH! ME LIKEY!!

I found out today, it will do almost 46 MPH in EV mode.. Sweet!!

As you can see, our trip average was 20 MPH.. 20 miles in one hour.
That's like Woburn when it gets close to Christmas time..

My hobby is installing & trying to repair mini-splits
EPA 608 Type 1 Technician Certification ~ 5 lbs or less..
