Hi all, First post and new owner as of yesterday. The site and comments have been very helpful. The dealer spent about 5 minutes with us on delivery and considering he couldn't explain how to change the station on the radio, 5 minute may have been too long. In any case, the info here has saved us (I've been lurking for a few days reading) along with some hours reading the manual (which isn't bad, I thought). Now if I could pose a question. I'm curious about the bars on the MFD which indicate charge status. Do these represent stored capacity? It seems so, but that doesn't seem to explain a behavior I noticed in the drive through (burger, not liquor store). I entered the line with all but two bars active and the line was fairly lengthy. On exiting, I was down to two bars and the gas drinker kicked in to maintain charge. I should also note that it was very hot and the AC was running constantly. If the bars denote stored energy such as KW/H, then I'm a bit surprised at the drain rate. If they measure V drop under load, then the behavior is not surprising as there may not have been enough charge time. Has anyone got a table of how much drain various activities such as AC places on the batts? The batteries are NiMH if I'm not mistaken and with a grand total of 60 miles on them, we could be talking about no more than the dreaded new battery silly owner watching his new toy syndrome. Hope this is not a duplicate. Couldn't find a thread on quite this topic though some posts on new batterys and break in time were helpful. I basically just want to make sure I don't have an infant mortality thing going on. Thanks in advance for any thoughts or comments.
