46.6 is a fairly high average speed. My last 2k miles has been about 38-39 MPH. I am fairly sure it used distance versus time the engine is running to make the calculation, so if you are stopped the clock is still running.

In winter here this car is my sole means of transportation. My trips are usually 20 or more miles average up to a max of 100 locally. Occasionally I will take a road trip of 300 to 400 miles total.

Higher average speeds tend to reduce the effectiveness of hybrid power trains as far as mileage.
