I love this car. Love sitting at a stop and knowing that I am not like all the cars around me pumping pollution into the air, because I am on the electric motor. I used to have a lead foot, and now I have more fun trying to get great mileage instead. I love competing with myself from one tank of gas to the next to try and get better and better mileage. So far the best tank of gas was 62.8 mpg and the worst was about 42 mpg. I have one tach that I haven't reset since I purchased her. Currently it says I am averaging 51.8 miles per gallon over the life of the car.
MPG trip/travel tachometers are fun to play with.
Give the driver more control over the transition between motor and electric engine. I can improve mileage if I were to shut the gas motor off at times when I am coasting down hills etc . . . Probably not good for starter and ignitions system. Would be nice if driver could control transition.
