It sounds like your Christmas was similar to mine, with the exception of the weather (my air con gets used to demist and dehumidify as opposed to keeping you cool).


I just want to know how the hell we survived the "old days" without air con. I guess we were tougher then? ;) Or the front quarter windows were a god send IMO in those days for demisting and cooling.

Not too hot? Forecasted 39 degrees C for Christmas day here...

That's way too hot for me, but looking on the bright side your solar panels musts have been harvesting a load of the wiggly stuff 8-)


Did not get to 39C here. We had a strong Northeasterly sea breeze here that kept the temp down. But not sure about AndyInOz.

Yep, get a lot wiggly stuff :lol: at this time of the year in more ways than one ie snakes and spiders (crawly) as well as amps or volts. ;)

-need more time to practice “piano” (per Anko): charge, EV, cruise, B0 to B5, displays, etc..that a lot of “keys” to learn how to play. Even if I get to play it well, probably I am just entertaining myself with no noticeable fuel economy.
It does become a bit boring to drive the car having no buttons to push. Probably that is the biggest motivator for playing the piano indeed :lol:

As a person that even anko might say has done a bit of testing fuel economy on the PHEV the only thing I would say is just try to avoid Series mode ie try to be in EV mode on the slow bits. If that includes using Charge mode (or Save mode ) on the fast sections (when in Parallel mode) so be it.
I am with you there. On both accounts ;-)

Hi anko, good that someone around here remembers those tests I did on fuel economy. ;)

Happy New Year. :)

Hiya! Yes, plenty of wiggly stuff going into the mains, last power bill was $40 for a quarter. :D

The forecasted hot weather didn't arrive on Christmas day, the max was 32.4, which was just lovely.

Two days later, we hit 40.9 bleh.

Happy New Year PHEVrybody!

:)
