What am I doing wrong? Or maybe - just can't please some cars.

    Thanks for the insight on this, since ive had the car for a couple of weeks now. It is fun to drive,the closest I got to a perfect score was a 97, it was a 7 mile trip. Another one I got a 95 on a 16 mile trip.


    I must say driving this car is like a video gane, it is very fun

    Hello again everyone I have been being frugal on gas lately & seeing what numbers I can get. This past week I haven't been doing a lot of highway driving, just a lot of in town.
    I checked my numbers & I put 1.50 Gallons 6 days ago & hAve driven 105 miles in 6 days.


    That is crazy that I drove 105 miles on 1.50 gallons. This car is really great on gas

    I did NOT know this! I get about 54mpg calculated and scores in the 60s most times, but I tend to try to stay in EV mode- sound like too much. I'll try your techniques and see what happens!

    It should do even better when warmer drier weather arrives. My Gen3 can do slightly better than that under the very best conditions, but can't come close under late October weather.
