Today we drove our favorite alpine loop. 47mi with about 4000 ft elevation change.

Total miles 47
Gas range reduction 468 to 462 (net 6 used)
Battery range reduction 26 to 0
Total power used for recharge after trip measured at 8.9 KWHr
Trip history stats 47 miles, 16.7 mpg

Observations

6 gas miles plus 28 EV miles does not equal 47. (it's 34)

Recharge power of 8.9 x 95% (assumed converter efficiency) - 8.4 KW hrs. Consistent with 8.9 Max capacity and consistent with the MCU keeping a 0.5 KWhr reserve in HEV mode.

something is buggy with the trip history stats. (Kia engineering take note)
