Hey guys ;)

I'm a happy owner of PHEV MY14 since June 2017. It was all good so far, but for the last couple of months, I see a significant decrease in EV mileage. I used to see 47-50 in proposed mileage after full charge, and could sometimes even get more than 50km of actual mileage.. but recently all I get on the screen after a full charge is 37km. Is this a reason enough for service centre visit or is it just the normal battery aging issue?
I live very close to work and 80-90% of the time use only EV mode. One full tank easily lasts me a month if I don't go interstate.

Wow that's quite a drop, usually range steps up at this time of year as the weather warms up. Are you sure -
1. Tyre pressure is ok? (however this should not amount to 10km loss)
2. Rear brakes are not sticking (hot after driving for a while - don't touch directly of course!)
3. Heating settings not still active

The only way to difinitively tell whether its the battery or one of the above is to interrogate the BMU using an App like EvBatMon (shameless plug, lol).

Heheheh...

I've noticed that someone is parking an identical model to mine in the multi-level car park where I park in Adelaide.

I'm half expecting an angry owner to chase me down the street every day, when I leave.

Hello I purchased my PHEV nearly a year ago second hand in Melbourne. So far it has been excellent I have toured Tasmania and recently visited Coffs Harbour and north western NSW.
There was recall for parking brake problems which was was done by Mitsubishi locally in the Eastern Suburbs.
I get asked all the time; "How long does the battery last?" and "how much does a new battery cost?"
I assume the battery is supposed to last 5 years.
I charge the PHEV overnight (midnight to 5 am) on off peak domestic power using a simple timer.
I cannot get the app on my ipad to work as I do not appear to have a password.

The battery should last the life of the car, however nothing lasts forever. I was assured by people with no knowledge at all that the battery in my Prius would die after a few years, 14 years old, 312,000km, still works perfectly.
Your Mitsubishi dealer should be able to help with app log in details, but also may not. My service department told me the code but I still cant access it.

We have towed our 1200kg caravan around the Flinders Ranges which was fun, broke the caravan not the car. Mileage towing generally up hill into a head wind was a shock, 16L/100km! Coming home was a bit better at 12.5L/100km.
