Got in the car it was at 88%. Drove 3.2 miles to the gym up hill. Did the exercise thing. Drove home and my charge was 88% …

Spouse(2) is driving further tomorrow I am wondering if it will work properly

Maybe driving up a hill then coming down it is the recharge regeneration dream? I need to find a mountain with a charge station at the base to try it :)

Disregard this response, I was thinking of your VOC app.

Maybe your SOC isn't working, try resetting your modem.

I don’t think you have an issue. My experience has been & I live on a mountain. I have a charge of 90% when I leave home and go down to the city (about 15 miles) and I typically average a gain of 3% to 93%. However, the return trip up the hill will use 20%.

Nice info. How nifty is it that our cars can gain energy whilst being in motion. I loved driving through mountains recently. All the down sections with the regen bar deeply in regen :)
