I had a little under 1/4 tank this morning and I was headed to Salem CT for the day. Only 1 charge possible today, I made it to my destination using 1.01 gallons and 87% of the HVB.
On the way home I had to conserve, as total range for the car was less than the distance to home by about 12 miles, but I managed to nurse it home closing the 12 mile gap to about 4 and getting there with some gas "reserve".
For those wanting to know, the car will still drive (not sure how much) after you reach 0 miles range. The gas gage will turn yellow first then red, and apparently with red there is some "distance" in the gage to the downside below the empty line. FYI, I had a 2 gallon gas can in case I ran out, I was going to put some in before leaving but then decided just take the can with me and I'll put some in if I need it.
I kept some battery reserve (between 5 to 10%) most of the way home (started at 13%) just in case I ran out of gas I could pull over at a convenient location. I was talking to my buddy as I got closer and closer to home and I told him "I got one more burn to do up this last hill" and from there I knew I would make it home on the remaining 5% battery.
I'll have to say this is the "lightest" my car has ever been. When I get gas I'm curious to see how much it will take to fill it up. I'll post later about that and let you know. Below are some pictures.
