Have a question for the Gen I owners. I have a really good feel for my Gen II (2009). I can get almost 60mpg per tank. I attribute that to the fact that there are stretches I drive where I can get into stealth mode for pretty long periods. I bought a Gen I about a year ago and we have put about 12,000 miles on it. We love it and have been getting just over 50mpg. Which is awesome. But I feel the reason we don't do better is because I can't seem to get it in stealth mode for more than 1/2 a second. When we first got it I thought it might be the tires and the alignment. The tires were not great and the alignment was off. But I finally got new tires and an alignment but still can't keep it in stealth mode. Basically what seems to happen is that I find the correct spot with the gas pedal but as soon as I do the car will tend to slow down a lot quicker than my gen II. So once that happens the electric battery kicks in and gets me out of stealth. There also doesn't seem to be much play in the gas pedal in stealth mode. What I mean by that is this. In my Gen II I feel like I have some margin for error to keep it in stealth. The height of the gas pedal can be off a little bit and stay in stealth. But with the Gen II, if I move the pedal even a millimeter up or down it takes it out of stealth mode. Sorry to be long winded about this. Basically my question is does this seem to be "normal" operation for the Gen I? The aerodynamics are not as good as the Gen II so I could understand why it doesn't roll as well and stay in stealth mode longer. But I was wondering if maybe something was off with the gas pedal mechanically. The car does have over 150,000 miles on it and if something was worn out then maybe the link between the pedal and the computer might be off. I know I'm not explaining that well. Like I said I am very happy with the MPG I am getting on the Gen I. Just wanted to double check that it is operating normally in regards to getting into stealth mode. Let me know if you need any other information from me to better answer the question.
