My work commute round trip is about 36 miles. In the morning I have to climb a long grade at freeway speeds. I've figured out that by using hybrid mode in the morning for most of the freeway leg, I get to work with about 18 miles remaining. Then the afternoon trip home, which includes going down that long grade with regen during the majority of it, I remain in EV mode the entire way and still have about 3 miles remaining when I get home. As of this morning I've gone 480 miles and the gas gauge has only dropped 2 segments. And most of that gas used has been for cabin heat, not actual vehicle movement. Yeah, I'm pretty pleased with it!
