Today did 90 mpg on my commute. 81.5 mpg on the morning trip and 98.5 mpg on the returning trip.

There is also something else... there is something that I didn't wanted until 3-4 months. With all the P&EOC I do in town, my 144v battery doesn't get charged much, and my SOC gauge showed 1/20 bars during my returning trip. When I was at a redlight comming green, I started and, nothing happened. I put it in neutral then again first gear then started again. There was a 1-2 second delay then I heard my 12v starter bringing my engine to life. It seemed to work well tho. It started after 3 soleno´d sound. After that I decided to do 2 big regen instead of coasting and I drove without shuting off the engine a little bit. My SOC gauge displayed 5/20 bars and I started to do P&EOC again and my engine could start on the 144v battery normally.

I think a 144v battery charger is needed more quickly than I thought...

The good part of this is that now I know my 12v starter works properly and I wont be in trouble this winter .
