How much can Regen braking charge the battery?

So I'm new and only know as much about the volt as I could find online. I haven't been able to plug my volt in as frequently lately after moving into an apartment. It's been about two weeks since it's last been plugged in...I go in last night after turning it off for about 15 minutes (with no battery charge obviously)...I hop back in, start her up...And I have 6 miles on the battery??? After that it drove on battery power for 6 miles. How is this possible???? I'm baffled

The battery range displays an ESTIMATE. So after the car sat and had a chance to recalibrate, it determined that you may actually have a few more (or less) miles than it originally estimated.

How much can get put back on regen will vary from 100% on an empty battery going down a steep long hill to 2-3 miles. I can usually add about 5 miles on a mixed road 60 mile trip here in flatland Illinois, but that depends on your driving style as well.
