Good info Gris: I don't recall if you have an HEV or PHEV and which model (be nice to have that in your profile) . Please let us know and also let us know what your average lifetime MPG is. Thanks

Ok, I'm back with my 10000 mile report.

October 8, 2019
10008 miles
151.3 running hours.

So, using the same assumption as last time (my driving style has not changed):
151.3 hours x 46 mph = 6959.8 miles on ICE
10008 - 6959.8 = 3048.2 miles on battery?

That's very close to 70/30.

Anyone with different driving conditions want to use my meter, let me know and I will give it to you. All you will need is 2 sided tape and a couple of zip ties.

I'd really like to see if differences between driving styles or models changes the 70/30 ratio.

At least for me, with the colder weather (was freezing this morning) the engine is going to run a lot for cabin heat, so I doubt that ratio would hold. I know while the weather was warm I would go many days with the ICE never starting at all. The ratio back then was probably more like 30/70 or lower for engine time. I would expect through the winter I'll be closer to 90/10 with the demands for heat.

Don't forget that when your waiting at a red light, or turned your car on but haven't moved, or are about to turn it off. The engine isn't running. I don't know how much my engine is running, but my monthly report (I've only gotten 1 so far) said that 17% of my time with the car "running" I was not moving. And I consider myself by far a lot better than average for not turning the car on before use. I don't let the car warm up, don't fiddle with a cell phone or anything. I suspect the average user has a lot more "idle" time.


I have a PHEV and don't have a clue what my ICE usage is. But using the gas usage by some fuel usage seems to be a reasonable way to get an estimate.

Since there is no wire leading from the coil to the spark plug, can you please provide picture how you installed the inductive sensor wire over the coil. I suppose you used the one visible under the edge of the air intake cover.

Wrapped trigger wire 4 times around coil body per installation instructions.

1st coil from the passenger side. I totally removed it, but I don't think it was necessary.
