    JDM (Japanese Domestic Model) cars use KMs instead of Miles, I am converting KMs to Miles by dividing them by 1.6, so that everyone can understand the numbers easily.

    Yes I was getting 60 + MPG not only due to the reason that I am light foot driver, always concious of the info on MFD, but also because my daily office run is almost signal free, where I drive at optimum speed (35- 55 MPH)

    Thanks, your inputs are really helpful, I will be going to see an expert in a few days. Will have the charging/ discharging cycles checked.
