Yes, that is I-40 east bound, Speed limit is 65 mph, the whole way to NM-14. I have the option of using old route 66 (which you can do 40 to 45 mph on most of the way instead but after more that 15 attempts I couldn't ever do better than 1% better SOC on old Rt 66 than on I-40, to the north 14 turn off. Often I did worse and it takes significantly longer, so no reason to do it IMO. I try for 66% SOC on the exit ramp from I-40 and usually achieve it. Actually though the miles/kWH average is around 3.6 at that point. As you can see by the destination numbers it gets much worse as the speed comes down and the grade gets steeper.kiev wrote:Is the bottom part of the hill (between mile 5 to 17) on an interstate? It seems that going 60-67 mph uphill would be using a huge amount of energy.
Of course it doesn't really matter too much because you know you can always coast or regen as necessary to make it back home--but what an awesome climb and return, thanks for sharing the data it's fun to see how these cars can perform such feats of strength.
For canion screen shots I’m using a cheap android tablet. It has a touch screen so I just use a single tap on the list on the left side of the canion screen which fairly reliably records a screenshot. With the tablet between the two front seats on the console I can get one at any time without looking away from the road.JoeS wrote: A couple of procedural questions:
1. Do you push the button on your Android device to take screen snapshots of the CaniOn display during your trip or do you employ some other technique to record and subsequently display the CaniOn information?
2. How did you produce that great altitude and speed vs. distance graph?
Yes, thank you!Aerowhatt wrote:...Hope this helps,
I think this is the best summary of this thread and I completely agree.Aerowhatt wrote: It's not worth talking about it, is the point. Regen when you need to for speed control otherwise coast coast coast.
