    On average, how many miles do you average between fill ups? I understand that this is all dependent on everyone's respective commutes, road conditions, ability to charge at work, etc., but i'm interested to know what you all do on average.

    I'm still on my first tank and have 905 miles with one bar left on my tank.

    I usually fill-up between 800-900 miles, but I hit the gas station when I'm down to two pips on the fuel gauge.

    On this tank I'm at 1327 miles and still have a full tank! (40 miles HV).
    (Yes, I know I need to use a tank every 6 months or so...some longer trips coming up in the next couple of months)

    Average 1000 miles per tank = once a month.

    Wow, these are all impressive numbers. Thanks for the responses. This may be a stupid question, but how do you check how much gas range is left? I have one bar left and am not sure how much further I can go. I know I should check the manual but you are all here...

    Scrolling through the trip computer will bring you to one setting that shows the estimated fuel range. I don't have a ton of experience with it so far, but it always seems a bit pessimistic to me. I believe it also will read zero miles to go with ~2 gallons of fuel remaining.

    Push the Trip button on the steering wheel until you see the DTE on the dash. It cycles between A, B, DTE, and Odometer.

    Personally I fillup once my ratio screen says I've used 9 gallons.

    that's correct and why my first fill-up was done with just 8 gallons used - the read had me concerned I was close to empty

    I use the 9 gallon rule as well… but only when I know I have to drive into LA the next day and will be using fuel. If I am driving around my hood in electric, then I do not fill up until the day before I plan on using gas.

    About 825 - 850. I'm trying to make the 1,000, but haven't yet, there's always been a longer run or two where I couldn't do enough EV.

    I tend to fill up at 1 pip, though I am also normally aiming for a particular cheap filling station (cheap for the UK, anyway) on my commute. I only recently realised that what I thought was a 45 litre tank is actually only a 40 litre tank, so my 37.5 litre fill up when the one pip was blinking and my range was down to 5 miles was rather hairier than I thought...

    920 mils on the trip odometer and down to two pips on the fuel gauge, so it's off to the gas station tonight. $3.09 a gallon. :D

    Well, the price at my favourite place is only about two of your American dollars...

    Unfortunately that's per litre...
