I actually do have one function for the EV switch so far. I have a relatively long driveway and I don't like to drive real fast on it (around 10 mph) since we recently put down new gravel. So, in the morning I use it to creep out of the driveway. Once I'm on the road and can get up to speed I kick it back into hybrid mode so the gas engine can warm up.

Thankfully, I don't hit too much stop and go. I'll let you know how it works if I do hit some though.
