Using mountain mode to build up a charge

While driving on the highway, I used mm to build up some battery charge. At this point I wanted to place the car in the hold mode to retain the charge for later use in the city. However, the hold mode was not available. Later, I realized that I had no charge left on the battery. Should I have just left the car in mm until I got in the city?

Whatever you do, dont' think that you are saving any energy by generating your own electricity. If you want to do this in order to have blissful ICE free driving for a little while, then fine. But it's been shown time and time again that Volting doesn't work (it might in very limited circumstances, but I have yet to get it to work for me).
Unless you're paying less than about a buck fifty for a gallon of gas. Which I suppose is conceivable, considering that Oklahoma's paying about $2.07 these days...
