    in the pip, when you charge it up, and drive a mix of ev/hv, then look at the ev drive ratio screen, the mpg is just total miles divided by gas used. as you know.

    The one big problem. However back seats still fold down, since we are only two, it works out. I have a free donut from the dealership. Part of negotiating.

    Well, our lows in the past three days approached 29F, with my Prime in EV and almost automatic heat, like 200 ft from my garage, engine does not come on. I think the Prime is the closest thing to a BEV as one can get.

    Oh, that's a type of reboot. Which restores the output to what it was originally. TEMPORARY only for 3-4 days and will continue to decrease slowly until you decide to reboot again. It does not increase the charge, but only restores it. Also a good procedure in troubleshooting and repair. My son has the 2012 PIP NOW so he inherited the quick off/on switch. But I have been using it steadily the last couple of years SUCCESFULLY.
    ( to all naysayers)

    now it's time to see if the prime has been improved to reboot itself.

    Since the battery is finally under the hood, one only has to lift one lead.

    you can use a memory saver. It plugs into a portable battery and your OBD port.

    And it doesn't defeat the entire purpose of lifting the battery cable?
