engine temp gauge As I was familiarizing myself with the various screens I opened the engine temp gauge window and saw that it was all the way up with a red rectangle around the top. I've been driving in straight EV mode for weeks now, so don't see how the engine cold be anything other than cold. I have not seen any temperature warning icons on the main screen.

Thanks, Griswald but I think I figured it out. That red thing at the top of the thermometer is just part of the graphic display, rather than an actual indication. I don't think it's reading anything because with the gas engine off it's just not an issue. Next time the gas engine is running, which I expect to be about a month from now, I'll check back and see what an actual indication looks like.

Installed hour meter 4/13/2019 with 33,281 miles on my odometer. Since then, I hit 1000 today, 1016 exactly on 5/2/2019. The...
We have a Touring and when you first start it, it idles very loudly. It reminds me of a diesel engine. I asked the service tech and he said it was the fuel pump and they are just loud in the car.
Anyone else noticing this?
