    And this was done without depleting the Hybrid battery.

    Mostly pulsing to 45 mph, then gliding down to 37 mph with a sliver of electric power.

    Yeah I think it'd be pretty hard to hack that display. The calculated reality would very likely be about 7% less, but that's still crazy high.

    If it's a 2-lane road and a car is behind me, I will drive at the speed limit, lightly pulse to 1 mph over limit, then lighten up on the throttle a little bit until 1 mph under limit. Then repeat.

    I broke 50 EV miles 3 times one summer in the 17 prime. This is the first and probably the last time I'll post about it, but I loved your response, so true.

    Yes, my average speed was about 41 mph, but I drive as high as 55 mph on freeways (using cruise control), to as low as 17 mph (using P & G) in gated communities.
