My car is 4 years old with 45,000 miles so the battery isn't fresh. My girlfriend lives 39 miles from me and this an average trip to or from her house. It's warm weather, I know the cold shortens battery life, but I'm not hypermiling, I keep the auto A/C on 73, drive normally. My display says I went the 39 miles, (it still shows 2 miles left) and only used 10KW. I know GM uses the center of the battery, never fully charging or discharging for maximum life so this shows how efficient the system is, even with years and miles of use on it. Head nod to the guys who designed and set up the software for this. If you're on the fence about buying an ELR or Volt, go for it. I'm an old school, big block Chevrolet guy who likes computers too and am supremely impressed with how this works.
