    The entire trip was EV, no HV, no gas. 199.9 essentially means infinite mpg since no gas was used.

    All EV and the grade the entire way is all freeway except for about 4 miles. There are some bridges over rivers, freeway overcrossings, etc.

    That tank of gas was filled on Nov 12 in Santa Nella, CA about 140 miles from my destination in Sacramento. I've got about1,034 miles on this tank of gas.

    Is that on the "Summary" box or "Last drive" one?

    In your case, but it could probably just mean over 200 mpg. Which is nothing to sneeze at ;-)

    Is there a way to replace that eco score thing in the lower right of the display with something else? I don't find it useful.

    I think that you have to select a new display for that entire area on the right side of the display and cannot change just the Score portion.

    What does CHG and that dashed line above it mean? To what is the CHG referring, the graph to the left or the battery icon in the right?

    I think that's' the regeneration or charging portion of the curve.

    I think Lee Jay is correct. I also think that the portion of the curve between the solid line and the dashed line below it indicates charging. The portion of the curve below the dashed line might indicate where brakes are engaged as well. That's my guess anyway.

    Yes, but not the total answer. From the dryer thru the wall, to plug in, at the wall is a good size cable with a plug in box on each side of the wall. 8-10 gauge wire, On dryer side you will have a 240 outlet for dryer and one for the car. On the Garage side you have another female outlet, 240 Volts that goes to, I'll call it a converter box, maybe EVSE, is the correct terminology. They say here on chat that it will not work if you don't use this box. Filled with fear, I hesitated in 2012 installing the 220 direct. I was given some sort of esoteric answer that went over my head. So without schematics and logic which was digestible did nothing. NOW, with my new EVSE made by juicer, $499, comes with cable I am quite happy with the arrangement. The beauty of it is, while installing you are never exposed to voltage nor is it necessary to open a CB. ALL Thanks to my son, He's a GENIUS.

    I use the Siemens versicharge GRU EVSE sans WiFi. It's a solid unit and a snap to install. 400 bucks on Amazon and it has a cool multi colored glow ring that one can see from afar to verify the state of charge if you don't have the Advanced model (if you have the Advanced, then you have Entune that tells you from wherever you are the state of charging).

    Unfortunately, the upgrade referenced by Lee Jay specifically states that it is not for the Prime.

    To the OP, Mr. Howard...

    What did you finally end up with for an EVSE?

    This doesn't make sense- 12amps=75% of 16 amps, this suggests a 25% increase in power makes a 100% increase in recharge time..I doubt that!
