I really like mine too. 30 mile commute with lvl1 charging at work, it gets me enough charge to drive home on battery and only use gas when it ERDTT. We currently take it 13miles to town opn the weekend for shopping as gas is over $4.25 here. It had 72 lifetime mpgs when I bought it, now its over 230, hope to hit the magic 250 by end of this year. I still plan on buying a crashed gen1 with working electronics to experiment with replacement battery cells, sadly its quite a few lines down on the list of "things to do".
