2/11/09 Ran vehicle from full charge to cut-out voltage in city driving environment. Covered 33 miles of stop and go driving (21 stop intersections) accelerating to 40mph after each stop. Start voltage was 77.9 finished voltage was 70v (30 minutes after stopping). Continous running smooth flat road would certainly yeild 40 mile range.
