It's been a tough past few weeks. I'm still logging every trip, and thought I was doing alright the first week of this tank, and then things seemed like they went downhill- and not in the way that us hypermillers want. (sorry, bad pun) 3 times during the past 7 days, I got stuck with Forced Charge. I live at the top of a fairly good sized hill, so, in the morning when I'd absolutely love to be able to take advantage of it, and get a good regen, I can't since the car's not warmed up. So, instead- as soon as I get out of my driveway, I FAS until I get to the stop sign at the bottom of the hill. 2 of the Forced Charges started as soon as I started up and accelerated out onto the main road. Whether or not the final charge depletion bringing me down to 4 bars is due to restarting the car, or if braking/steering while in FAS sucks it up, I really don't know. Unfortunately, I can't seem to have a charge reserve to avoid this when I get home and park, since the pitch and height of my hill cause me to need to use 3-4 bars of assist to get up it, so I always end up with my charge at 5 bars. The angle of the hill won't even allow me to crawl up it, without pushing my tach past 2,000. Add to all this, night temperatures have dropped in the past week, so the car's had more to make up for during warm up. BUT.... I got my best tank out of this last fill up, calculated at the pump as 10.115 gallons for 629.4 miles, for a total of 62.224 mpg calculated- by far my best tank yet! :Banane09: So, perhaps my skills have just improved enough, so that in the first week I had a better overall mpg- enough to make up for the second weeks havocs. As I said at first, I'm constantly logging all my segments- I guess it's about time I actually look at the log, instead of just writing it down. Maybe even with the forced charges, I'm still doing alright regardless? Over all, I'm happy, but still trying my darnedest to figure out just what I need to do to get my charge up more on my way home, so I'm not depleted when I pull into the driveway, and starting my day off poorly with a forced charge.
