Speed limits are going up in MI. Anybody have a hold mode mileage number 80-85 MPH?
Honestly, the difference is unlikely to be much at those speeds. The aerodynamics of the car determines how much power you need, and to get a certain amount of power you need to burn a certain amount of fuel. Efficiency of the engine will of course make a difference, but probably not a lot. What did you get in your gen 1 at those speeds? Maybe add 10% for gen 2.Gen 2 please. I know what Gen I would do since I owned one.
That is the MINIMUM speed in California....just to survive and not get run overSpeed limits are going up in MI. Anybody have a hold mode mileage number 80-85 MPH?
Pretty much the same on the turnpike in FLA and sections of I-75 and I-95. Left to my own devices, I would drive 78 in a 70 MPH zone, but I frequently get up in to the lower/mid-80s for long stretches due to traffic conditions.That is the MINIMUM speed in California....just to survive and not get run over
Averaging all electric still on my 2017 and 44 mile round trip.
the computer says about 89....but without using gas )
Is that a real rule or a rule of thumb? Presumably in your State. With the "following behind" sensor in the Volt, I feel comfortable following other cars at 1.0 to 1.2 secs. But at those distances, you get cars switching into your lane. I think pack driving must have gaps of 0.6 secs or so.I see no issues with driving 80 mph on nice long stretches of the interstate..however, my issue is that most people don't even come to close to maintaining a safe distance. If police officers would enforce the 3 second rule of space between cars, driving at higher speeds would be MUCH safer. Has anyone ever seen a multiple car pile up? Ever wonder how so many cars could be involved in one crash? They simply didn't have a safe distance between them.
