28 Dec 11- Bought it.

Very nice vehicle...
Engine turned on three times on way to work. The car said it was too cold. Found out it has engine assisted heat. At 25 or below, with the heat on, the engine turns on till it gets to 140, then off till it gets to 104. So I turned off the heater.

11 Jan 12- Lifetime MPG is 250+ Have not used gas since I drove it from the dealer.
15 Jan 12- Used gas :( 247mpg...
27 Jan 12- Actuant installed a level 2 Clipper Creek Charger! Charge time is down to about 3 hrs.
2 Feb 12- MPG has increased to 370, puts me at #73 on voltstats.com
4 Mar 12- 404 MPG!
20 Apr 12- Have found that driving in "Low" lets you regen big-time! Increased range by 4 miles! Driving in "Sport" mode is very fast! Might have given my S10 (sold) a descent race.
20 JUNE 12- Have over a 50 mile range staying under 45mph
630 mpg!
15 Jan 13- Used gas! Engine starts at 25 degrees or lower
