Strange thing driving home

Recommended Posts

A very odd thing happened on my 4 mile drive home from the club tonight.

I was watching the MPG figure on the centre of the dashboard and it was showing a reading of around 39.5 mpg but it gradually started to climb and was showing 47 mpg and then 59 mpg the closer that I got to home.  I always switch to EV mode when I turn into my road and, by the time that I turned into my drive the figure was showing as 99.9 mpg.

I never had this happen with my IS300h.

Anyone got any thoughts on this?  It will be interesting to see what I get when I go out in the morning.

The readout is instantaneous mpg, so 99.9mpg just means it's on electric only. As the ICE cuts in and out the mpg will naturally rise. 

What really matters is the average mpg given on the trip (or summary) readout

Thank you Peter, I will have a look at the summary tomorrow.

As I said in my original post, even though I always switch into EV mode when I turn into my road, I have never had the reading show anything like what happened today.  The figure usually just rises slightly in my IS.

The only odd thing I can see is that you were driving home from the club :w00t:

I always thought youd be more restrained than that! Haha

Where's these NX pics anyway, it's been ages!
