I have been using my Low gear when driving in the city (most of my driving) and I do like it and it seems to keep my charge up at a constant level that I don't notice any loss when driving home from work. I change into Low gear as I approach a light or stop sign. Yeah!
My question is, after reading the users manual, it says I can shift into Low gear 'at any vehicle speed' (pg 214). Is this true? Has anyone done this? I have only been going about 30-35 mph or less when I use it. Has anyone done this at higher speeds? Like on an off-ramp or?
Also, how fast can you go while in Low gear? and keep at that speed? Again, I am looking at the 30-35 MPH range as I drive thru the city. Be nice to leave it in in Low gear all the time if I don't 'burn' out anything.
Thanks everyone...I know I will learn more from your responses too that I did not think of! Go Energi!
