Any one else getting more than 30 per charge?

    My high this far on the GOM is 38.2 miles. My wife has been driving the car on and off for the last few weeks and the GOM is now showing 35.2 miles.:(

    I know exactly what you mean. I've had my car to myself for a few weeks now. You can tell when my wife drove the car. It shows on GOM always a day after. LOL

    So she's not as light in the toes as you are and gets to where she needs to be without any OCD.
    Can you display the differences in $ costs $ ?
    How many more decimal points of a penny does she spend to keep up with traffic, like a normal person?

    For us, the cost has nothing to do with getting longer EV range. Our electricity rate is high enough there is no saving in driving EV. Also, speed and keeping up with traffic has very little to do with it. We drive on rural roads with very little other traffic, and if anything my wife drives slower than I.:p

    After four months of trying to increase EV range on my PRIME, I finally got over 40 miles on GOM with full charge this morning. I will see what actual miles it will drive on EV. I predict it will be very close to 40 miles.

    Edit: I drove a total of 29.6 miles on EV mode today and the battery charge remaining was showing 40%. This means only 60% of the battery charge (from the dash display) was used. Simple math reveals that would be 29.6/0.6 or 49.3 miles for full EV range from 100%. Wow! Can this be real?

    That's amazing! You must've gotten over 7 miles/kWh!

    I'd get 29.6 km on that 60% lol. (ok a little more. My real distance is somewhere in the 57km/35-36 mile range)

    That is my usual EV range in summer as well. My usual daily commute is 18 miles one way or 36 miles round trip and no charging available at work. I can sometimes make both ways on EV but most times runs out of EV just a mile or two before reaching home. Yesterday, I had a shorter driving distance than usual. The extrapolated EV range of 49.3 miles is not something I have ever achieved before. This predicted range is even higher than the all-time record of 48.2 miles set by @Prius from Dad.
    For mine, it was 8.7miles/kWh on the Eco Diary yesterday. The GOM now shows 40.3 miles on a full charge this morning. However, my wife is taking the PRIME today for her out of town appointment. I don't think it will keep over 40 miles range tomorrow. :cry::cry::cry:

    Yay! Congrats...
    disclaimer: IF I'm driving in traffic or with other distractions in my driving path I do NOT do any of the gauge watching / switching screens or logging.

    Simple math gets more complicated when calculating EV range for a full EV trip.
    I currently use 4 screens from the plus to help me learn about the cars EV. The GOM (both initial EV range and remaining EV range while driving). I add miles driven to GOM miles remaining to calculate if and by how much I'm matching, bettering or falling off the initial GOM prediction.
    I also use the mi/kw screen for an overall view of topology as I drive.
    The forth screen is the graph showing mi/kw
    (graph I typically use consists of
    x axis = 0 up to 20 mi/kw
    y axis = 0 through 15 miles
    columns represent the average mi/kw for each mile driven as shown below.
    20190809_023813-graph.jpg

    driver can also select columns to represent the average mi/kw in 5 mile increments showing 30 miles (with 5x less granularity).

    I’m gonna have to try and use imperial units. The scale in metric is terrible. Just imagine if the Prius’ FE scale maxes out at 40mpg - that’s basically the Prime’s scale. I have no idea how well I’m doing per trip.

    My wife drove our PRIME yesterday. She drove 114 miles total with 5.1miles/kWh and 5% AC load ratio. The daily mpg ended up 94.4mpg. The GOM is now down below 40 miles at 39.5 miles as I predicted. Although I have no proof, my wife said the car drove over 40 miles on EV before ICE kicked in. She pays no attention to conserving the battery or extending EV range. It is assuring that even with "normal" driving, the car is capable of over 40 miles of EV range when conditions are favorable.

    A new high score that we can look to achieve.

    @Tideland Prius
    I can experiment with switching between SAE/Metric screens and post pics of both from the same trip if that will be more helpful for those using the Metric screens.
    Last time I tried switching screen from SAE to Metric I think I reset one of the trip meters by mistake during my blind button pushing. :(

    Yes it wipes the trip history (but it shouldn’t wipe the trip meter A or B. Just the “since start”)

    Right. And it also (iirc) wipes the little bar charts for mpg/mpkwh in the MID.

    40.5 lately. This has to be at the top of the year's bell curve. Should definitely be going south of that as the weather heads towards autumn, and then the other season that comes after. I never saw numbers this high the past two seasons.

    Not related to the thread, but just completed a close to 3 thousand mile trip. In the rolling hills of Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine, the average to two complete tanks (urp, gasoline) was in the mid 60's, with close to 500 pounds of cargo and mixed A/C usage. Incredible car! Lots and lots of Primes in those three states, You see more Primes in one day up there than in three months here in Illinois.
