Out of curiosity, was your goal to charge it or to just run in Esave maintain?Wife and I were bored today so we decided to go for a ride.
Left Toledo with about 84% battery. Headed to a historical area about 124 miles south.
The battery ran out after about 25 miles. I switched it to E-save mode and by the time we got to our destination the battery was back to 70%.
We continued southwest into Indiana and kept it in E-save until we headed home.
It topped out at about 85%. Wouldn't go higher than that.
All told we've put around 800 miles in our first month. I've put $43 worth of gas in it and it's still almost full.
It rides like a dream.
Color me very pleased.
If your running it in Esave charge, you're burning more fuel.
Check your Esave settings in your hybrid settings.
