Hello all

Enjoying the forum.

Advice please: I am about to buy a 2014 GX4H. I want to road test it and I wonder how long it takes for the engine to re-charge the batteries to the point that it cuts off again. I plan to cruise at about 65mph on a relatively flat section of motorway. The batteries are showing 10-15% at the moment.

Thanks in anticipation

Depends on driving style, road surface, wind, tyres, temperature, etc. Impossible to answer.

I get about 1 mile of charge for around 2 miles driven.

Out of curiosity, why?
