Ben: mine can also be a turbine with the sail. I'll just mount the car by one of its front hubs. OK, never mind.


Energy economy is creeping back up to normal.

Last charge cycle was 330 Wh/mi. Still a bit worse than average.

1/3 of that was trailer towing (put the little boat away for the season). The remainder was driving moderately efficiently in regular traffic -- which restricts how much coasting down to stops I will do. If I can't coast to stops, regen would be the next best thing instead of heating up the friction brakes.
