while 500 is an overestimation, the 999 I got after the fill up is a glitch. While the HV odometer does count down when in use, when I subsequently filled it up again, the HV odometer didn't readjust, but stayed at the then current mile estimate of 805.darthpuppy wrote: ↑Mon Feb 26, 2018 5:20 amI noticed that upon my first fill up, it indicated my HV range would be about 500 miles. I think it is doing too simplistic of a straight line forecast based on miles accomplished over the last tank full. Since I recharge a bunch of times and only used 3.5 gallons for 350 miles of driving, it thinks I can go a really long range on my tank, which I can assuming I can recharge the way I've been doing. So that 'range' indicated on the display would not be the true range I can continuously drive before needing to refuel. I think it is calculating and presenting a different data point than what we are expecting to be displayed there. Having this data point is good to know, but knowing how far you can really go on your present battery and fuel tank is more important. So I hope they get this straightened out quickly.
Don't get me wrong, I really like this car also. The pluses as far as I am concerned outweigh the few negatives I have.
Cay, the 47 miles is an estimate based on a specific set of test cycles and is an average of city and hwy tests (conducted at about 70 degrees). Real world driving will usually yield different results, and the range displayed after a charge reflects recent driving history. The major hits to range are cold and speed. Both also affect ICE vehicles, but most people don't pay much attention to the range to empty, but look at the fuel gauge.Cay wrote: ↑Wed Mar 07, 2018 3:38 amInterestingly, I've noticed that since the second charge, I've never gotten the battery to read 47 miles range again. Now it says fully charged between 39 and 44 miles, which is a bit annoying as that is potentially a substantial loss of range if it only charges to 39. Was wondering if it mattered whether it was on HV, normal or ECO mode when charging, but haven't noticed a difference between when it charges to 44 and when to 39.
