I looked at the hybrid thread and everyone there including you said they work well (the gas pods), but now you're saying you can't see any difference?

 

I have them on mine and when I tested some years back I was pretty sure they worked better with than without.  I was looking to see where people placed them but couldn't find one picture of that...

Oh wait I see you have a picture showing them, you should try to move your pods in line with the antenna pod, let me know if that works better.  I have 5 on each side of it-- to me location mattered.

Sure let me go down and take one for you...OK got them see below.  I was mistaken, they are halfway between the antenna and the back of the roof panel, not in line with the antenna, I forgot where I placed them for best results.  Now I remember and they work best here not at the antenna and not where you have them, those are too far back or too far forward.  Try this position and let me know if its any better for you.  :D

Now with the consistent 70-80+ degree temps and no significant rain my average on this tank is 57.5 mpg with 306 miles and climbing  with speeds between 35-55 mph around home and no Interstate driving using my MPG Tips.    Combining miles driven and Estimated miles to empty gives 815 miles estimated total for this tank  and 66% EV miles or 209 miles so far. smile.png
