NH Patriot: Got a chance to reset miles for a normal day. One way is highway 28.8 miles in 28:07 minutes for an average of 60 Miles Per Hour with the EVIC showing 34.5 MPG! on the highway followed by 4.6 Miles in 27:28 minutes for an average of about 6 Miles Per Hour with the EVIC showing 18.6 MPG.
Total one way usual trip equals 33.4 Miles with 28 on the highway and 4.6 in the city. Looks like my 50/50 thought was based on time and not miles. Pretty amazing that the highway portion showed 34.5 MPG!!!
If that is a normal commute it is amazing that you get the MPG you are. 27+ minutes to go just 4 miles is a MPG killer. That right there is some serious city gridlock. When the time comes where you can do an all highway trip( vacation or something ) I bet you see over 30 MPG if you keep it to 60 MPH.
Be VERY HAPPY with your 22-23 MPG average if that 27+ minute/4 mile segment is part of your normal daily commute. Man that is brutal on MPG.
Thanks for taking the time to do this.
