The Force is with you

EV(e) that is.                                   



She is your constant & abiding helper, friend, lover ………….. embrace her!

Charge her up by coasting at speed down moderate declines, (free EV charge)

Charge her up by using the Down Hill Assist on steeper declines, (free EV charge)

Charge her up by braking methodically, (free EV charge)

Charge her up at 2 bar ICE squirts only when you must.

Ride her up hills if you can, eeking over the crest when possible & you have a free EV charge down the other side,

Use her every electron when the road ahead screams ‘charge obligation’ (i.e. extended up-hill / ICE climb ahead)

Use her whenever you can. 

Treat the ICE, well, like ice!  Don’t touch, unless you must.

Looking ahead, how much free (sans gas) EV charge can I maximize, and ICE squirts minimize.

EV = Li Ion 'Hybrid' Battery = better MPG’s = fewer emissions = love


Like Jus says, drive at speed;  jus do it judiciously!


My 2 cents, consider at your own risk, corrections welcome,
