    Like swimming with a backpack on. No matter how aerodynamic, its going to slow you down.

    That's why scuba divers use fins.

    I did some testing today using only the HV mode (W/full charge) and the battery stayed full the whole time. Thanks again.

    Just got back from my round-trip Utah to New Jersey (5400 miles). I averaged 45.1 mpg. I'm totally happy with the whole trip. I've had two back surgeries and I never felt uncomfortable, considering I drove 12hr days. I was really impressed with how smooth and how good the car handled at sustained high speeds (80+). The “ Full Speed Dynamic Radar Cruise Control” is awesome! It works great in slow-moving traffic and locking on to the vehicle in front of you from a select distance. The Advanced JBL was really nice and the nav worked flawlessly even when cell phones lost signals.
