My commute is 65 miles round trip with 12 miles each way on the Palisades Interstate Parkway.
On the way home while on the Palisades I switch to Hold Mode to run the engine, switching back to Normal when I take my exit. At that point I have a dozen miles left in the battery, more than enough to get me home.
As I switch to Normal I bring up the info screen and it will tell me that I got 40 some MPG (gas).
For the rest of my trip the engine will not kick in BUT the MPG number will change often indicating 65 MPG by the time I am home.
What is going on? Why does the MPG figure change with the engine off?

Thanks,

jbaker,

Thanks for the reply, I didn't understand Hold Mode.
as for your questions:

"Does your ICE run constantly while in Hold mode..."
No it turns on and off depending on the terrain.

"What bridge do you use to cross back to NY?"
Luckily none I am west of the river.

Thanks again.

Barry,

You are correct it is a '17 Volt and I need to put my glasses on prior to posting.

Thanks
