Thanks for the video, Malm. Love watching these - you sure know how to drag the kilometers out of the i-MiEV. You have the advantage of being able to go slow and use a lot of coasting.

Like Dylan...I went electric.

You are absolutly right MLucas. No secrets, no miracles, just go slow and if possible, avoid using the accelerator pedal. With N, the car will still run if it's downhill.

Imagine that I go downhill for 17,5 km (11 miles) with a difference in altitude of 1000 meters (0,625 miles). How many bars will I spent?

I'm waiting for your guesses...

The video has the answer.

Getting 3 bars in 11 miles, another record?

Malm, I enjoyed looking at your countryside - I must say, your roads are in better shape than ours!

Regarding number of bars - I'm confused. I was expecting your display to show a GAIN of three bars in the 17km downhill; instead, your display showed a LOSS of bars. Perhaps I was not looking at the right spot in the video?

The best INCREASE I have recorded on my iMiEV fuel gauge (a number of times) has only been one bar, and that was only on about a five-mile downhill stretch where I was not regenerating hard but only playing with the 'shift' lever to keep my speed under the speed limit.

Bars are gained between 4:00 of the video (display shows 5 bars and 61.5 km of the trip) and 5:00 of the video (display shows 8 bars and 78.9 km of the trip). Any doubt now?

One of these days i will make a video in english, you deserve, my youtube channel has more then 45 visualizations from USA.

Anyone has done better?

I wonder if i can add it to my extensive list of records.

By the way, I reached 1600 meters of altitude in this trip. But one year ago I went to the top of this moutain - 1993 meters (the biggest of continental Portugal, only azores has one taller)

Wow, malm, I had missed that! GAINING THREE BARS over the 17.4km. Yes, you have set the record on the myimiev forum! The distance doesn't really matter - it's just the fact that you were able to recover so much energy. 8-) :mrgreen: Another superb advantage of our electric cars. Congratulations!

Finding an EV at a charging station at the end of the rainbow (especially a double rainbow) beats a pot of gold in my book.

Is that a quick charger?
