Re: Was ICE cold weather start formula reprogrammed?

We have the UK 2020 model, over the last few days overnight we have experienced -1 c, if I leave the heater in the on position set at 22 c the ICE unit has started to fire up first thing in the morning, however if I leave the heater set at 18 c it has not fire up the ICE unit yet. In the winter I no...

Claiming to be able to measure any meaningful temperature at the valve cap is a joke.
Not to worried about the temperature's I just treat it as a rough guidance, its the tyre pressures and the early warning alarm

Re: TPMS on the PHEV - no pressures, what a joke!

I regularly check and amend my tyre pressure, however due to commitments I have not check the pressure since the end of September. Front tyre down to 28 psi rear down to 33psi (Rear tyre pressure normally set to 38 psi due to carrying a heavy Motability scooter), I don't have the confidence or abili...

Re: Towing in hilly areas

If you regularly accelerate away from a standstill while towing in EV-mode, all your power is coming from the battery at a high 'C' level, which isn't good for the battery. Surely it's better for longevity of the battery to use the power from the ICE for high power applications and save the battery...

Re: Towing in hilly areas

The "over revving" is just like holding a low gear to pull away/overtake faster with a manual box - although if you are used to automatics then this is not so obvious a comparison. I agree that it is intrusive but only because you have got used to how quiet the car is normally.. However, like the o...

Re: Towing in hilly areas

We tow a 1500kg caravan with our 2.4 PHEV, we just let our battery discharge to about 80% then hit the charge button, when we first started we were overthinking trying all sorts of modes, especially when the engine is revving away at speeds below 45 mph, eventually you will learn to ignore it, once ...

Re: Spare Tire kit

Hi Oscarmax, I wonder if you got the spare one with exactly similar rim and tire or just some random rim with similar tire size ? Any chance to use it yet ? Thanks for your help. Genuine Mitsubishi and exactly the same size, the downside being the spare wheel is of a 2017/18 model so of a different...

Agreed that there is probably no clear winner when you are taking long trips. In my case, I like to keep the battery at least half charged or so because I never know when I am going to hit bad traffic... and of course, I try to reach home with an empty battery.

Don't forget that the charging gets less efficient as the battery gets above 60%, so the ICE might not be able to run in its most efficient envelope. So I do much the same as you, except that I switch to SAVE if the battery gets too full.
+1 works for me
