Keep going! There is quite a learning curve on this car. I would have been happy with 77 when I had it as long as you. Now that I have learned to drive it better, I am almost averaging that for the tank. 75.3 mpg with 4 bars left on the fuel gauge. I don't mean that as a brag; that is for an idea of what you have in store. I haven't even heavily modded it yet. The OBDII C&C is the most important just because I can reset the state of charge to avoid forced charge when I don't want it and force it when it is more advantageous. I also have a dumb grid charger that I can use to balance my pack and recharge it when I park it with a low battery. I still need to install my block heater and MIMA. I figure those will get me above 80 in the summer. Beyond that I would need more/newer battery. Still, have fun and ride the lean burn wave, brah.
