    With the arrival of warmer weather the fuel efficiency of my PIP has increased. I purchased gas for the first time 3 months.
    Miles 1002.4
    Fuel purchased 5.695gallons
    ~176 MPG
    EV/HV = 73%\27%
    Lifetime MPG 140.8

    While my overall fuel efficiency has at least doubled (low February ~100 mpg: high April >200 mpg) my estimated EV range has only increased by ~8% (8.6 to the current 9.3). The biggest contributor to my improved fuel efficiency is the fact the ICE does not need to be warmed up.

    That would be about 45MPG, which is a bit low for a PiP.

    Lifetime gas usage:
    597 miles 15.7 gallons consumed
    38 mpg

    Not great! However, the majority of my HV were relatively short (10 mile or less) and up a relatively steep hill (the primary reason my EV range is relatively low).
