I don't think so, but could be using waste energy to create heat, if I come off the M62 at J22 (highest point of the highest motorway), and it is pretty much downhill for 5 miles the road follows the river down for a further 5 miles (to my mums house at least). If I deliberately drive to depreciate the Battery at the top of the hill I can do the entire stretch on electrical power alone, without the engine kicking in once. If I don't, and start the downhill bit with quite a bit of charge and/or drive a bit quicker to use the engine, charging the Battery, then near the bottom of the hill the engine will kick in when the Battery is full. I used to commute this way and consciously tried depleting the Battery to stop the engine from kicking in.
It came on this morning at the bottom of a hill (hot day, engine upto temperature and heating / climate was off).
There was a video done when I decided to do my one and only rev up session of the day. Trouble is the phone microphone distorted badly, so sounds a bit rubbish unfortunately!
I will post it though in a bit, mainly because the feedback from the guys up in the stand who left watching the vintage F race cars because mine sounded better is priceless! Lol.
@Peter P18 Well that answers it then did the judge and the Mustang owner have the same surname 😉
Ragging cold engines bouncing them off the Rev limiter a massive no no......🙄
