Why doesn't regen post miles to my EV capacity when it is zeroed out.

When I have exhausted the electric range I don't see new miles posted to the range. Am I still getting regen benefits?

It is unclear why using gas-generated electricity to fuel an electric car’s electric motor is not considered "electric" driving.
Because it was paid for by gas dollars, not home electricity dollars. The regen is not a perpetual motion machine, it did not generate the electricity out of thin air. Instead, it's recapturing some of the electricity created by the gas engine. Hence gas miles not electric miles.
