No, and after immense attempts I would bet that everyone knows that I never claimed the regen system did not add reserve to the battery and you know it; I said that your claim of the regen system producing not just what the car is using but MORE than the car is using is a complete BS fabrication than YOU came up with since even Tesla has never been dumb enough to claim that.
Mine goes from 40, to 35, to 30, to 25, to 20, to 15, to 10 and then finally arrives at about 7 MPG long after I have flattened out, it is a dynamic calculation that creates an average which gets more accurate the longer you drive: by the time I need to fuel it has come pretty close to the MPG that I get when I use a calculator and my Odometer at the fuel pump.
It is not possible and it is not happening in your fan boy videos, ALL electric cars use more energy than their paltry regen systems can produce unless you shut them off and push them off a cliff or drag them around with a pickup truck
I can’t help it, I still cannot believe you posted that video and I laugh every time I think about it: I would love to see somebody make a Tesla commercial using that clip to show how great the car is!
Try to focus, guys. I filled up my Honda Accord with gasoline Tuesday evening on my way home from my shift at the airport (I volunteer at the Travelers’ Aid desk once a week.). I did this about 5 miles from home at 10:30PM on a cold evening. When I re-started my car, the range gauge said I had 398 miles of range. I drove those five miles home and when I pulled into the garage, the range gauge said I had 414 miles of range in the tank! Now WHERE do you suppose those extra 21 miles of range came from? (5 miles of usage PLUS the 16 miles of “added” range on the gauge.). BTW, the average speed limit between that service station and my home is 45 mph through 5 different stop lights, though I did not have to stop at each light as 2 of them were green when I arrived at that intersection, so I only had to stop and idle for a few minutes 3 times.
I posted the explanation as to what’s really happening in PD’s case (and how it differs from the Tesla), but instead, let’s see if RET, the automotive genius, can explain to you what’s really happened here.
Can you explain to Dave what’s happened here, or are you as stumped as he is? Do you think that his car gained range the way the Tesla in AS’ video gained range, or do you understand what’s happened here? Because, obviously, PD does not.
Still doesn’t account for why my gasoline-engine Honda ADDED 21 miles of range after I drove it 5 miles home from the service station. CSB claims to “know the secret” but refuses to post it. LOL. BTW, after sitting cold in my garage overnight, the NEXT DAY I got in, started up to back out and the range gauge showed it to be 419 miles! lt added 5 more miles of mileage while sitting in my garage overnight!
Doesn’t matter, AS. I get it that both cars ESTIMATE range differently. What you’re trying to tell us is that Teslas somehow “incorporate” terrain that it hasn’t already traveled? What in God’s googly goo are you babbling about? Are you SERIOUSLY claiming that “several Teslas” have traveled up and down your mythical 7-mile hill and therefore “share” their experience with other Teslas? That’s about as ridiculous a claim as I’ve ever heard from you.
Oh, BS! That’s about as silly as your other claim. No Tesla goes up a hill, turns around and goes down that hill with the engine turned off so it’ll GAIN charge by applying the brakes. That’s ridiculous on its face. If the Tesla is MOVING on the highway, uphill OR downhill, the engine is running…that is, drawing power from the battery. Your regenerative braking is simply NOT efficient enough to replace the power used to run the car and all of its accessories. What actually happens–maybe–is that the drain on the batteries going downhill is a bit LESS than it is going UP that hill, assuming, of course, that the driver is applying his “regenerative brakes” going downhill from time to time to counteract gravity.
