I had my wife plug it in this morning when she woke up, and I unplugged it when I woke up. Its a 92% now and the fan was racing again I figured 92 is enough to go to Foxboro and come back, its about 9 miles each way plus I need to take her to the chiropractor on the way in Franklin. I'm thinking I may not charge it there in Foxboro while in the heat, but later on the way home if I need to I can stop at the big Y after its dark and charge it some then before getting home.
I am posting this picture to show the hybrid range, its remarkable for in town hybrid driving. I filled the tank yesterday and the more I drive hybrid in town the more it goes up. I think I had it as high as 752 miles range, then when you go on the highway at 66mph it drops due to drag, in that case at least 100 miles range less, in the area of 587 to 632 depending on OAT and hills or no hills at 66 cruise.
Edit: Tom, in this kind of hot weather it might be best to drive your ranger instead during the heat of the day and save the Cmax for evening rides. That's what I usually try to do here, I hate going out in the middle of the day with the baking sun, especially if I'm going out to charge somewhere also. Go later when the sun is fading if I don't have to go earlier, for example go to the supermarket (big-Y) after dinner and plug in there while shopping.
