    Yes. You want to build up some speed (within reason) in anticipation of the next uphill and then decelerate as you begin climbing the next uphill.

    I would stay in power mode the whole time I use the car. This allows the gas motor to kick on sooner, decreasing battery reliance and lengthening it's it's lifespan. UpTo you I guess. I replace batteries at 225k usually. Done three of em so far.
