I'm going to need to find a balance with EoC and regenerative braking, or just not use assist as much when accelerating, because the hybrid battery was a bit lower when I got home than when I left. On the positive side, I was above 105mpg for a bit on my way home from clothes shopping earlier, but the last hill before my house brought me down to 82, which admittedly is still a record for driving in this town in traffic.
Only use assist when accelerating in first gear. I find I lose most battery power when using it in 2nd.
