Took a trip down to you-do it electronics and net about 6.4 miles per kwh, check MFM log  :happy feet:

 

Still had 40 something % left in the HVB and was on track for 30 miles range.  FWIW I didn't drive at 25mph, more like 38 mpg in most cases where I could.  

 

As you can see I parked at Muzi to recharge while walking down to you-do it to grab a couple of items.  I always tend to park at the charger and walk rather than drive to my destination and skip a charging opportunity.

 I'd love to know how well I could do on flat land. WV hills sap the energy pretty quick. All the same I got 22 miles yesterday of mixed 35-45-60 mph driving.

Yes also the faster you go the less the miles.  If I drive at 55mph I can only get about 22 miles tops I think on battery, maybe less now than day 1 with more capacity.

 

Also like you say, hills do hurt the range some as well.  Some people like to shift to N going down hills and let the car run away so you can get 1/2 way up the hill in front of you before having to use the accelerator but I'm not a big fan of that because you tend to speed and go out of control (meaning going way too fast) going down the hill.

My Guess-0-Meter has been showing 27 miles this week.  Hopefully it will go above 30 soon.

Now that it's getting warmer my hybrid mpgs are going up considerably again. I can easily get around 50 mpg with little or no effort at 60 mph.
