    Yup, lots of time is wasted. Fortunately, patterns emerge from the "OP abandonment" threads... giving use a good idea what needs to be addressed. Eventually, the FAQ becomes a robust resource, helping to bring quick conclusions to new owner concerns. The User-Guide ends up becoming a helpful preventative too. Both take time and we haven't even made it through our first cold season yet.

    absolutely. i guess in some way, these forums are a microcosm of life. it does amaze me when people ask a question or ask for help, and then seem to disappear shortly after with no resolution.

    I like to belive that we helped him and his wife. The last we heard, the EV ratio improved.

    A few things bothers me. The pictures he posted are gone (deleted?). He never provided the summary screen showing the trip overall MPG. We only had to go by what he said she said (58 MPG).

    He never provided the screen or tell us EV miles remaining after a round trip. I know not all the EV miles were not used up, from the screens i saw now deleted.

    The breakdown of the electricity consumption and gas consumption from the deleted screens were so bad. I think his wife has insanely heavy foot.
