rkar189203, delighted you're still taking longer trips in your i-MiEV. You honed your efficient driving skills during your cross-country trip, and now it simply comes naturally. Range continues to be "whatever we need it to be" and I'm impressed by the consistency of your readings after four years - yes, battery degradation is a negligible issue with us. On this forum most of us are i-MiEV fans and recognize the value our maneuverable little workhorse provides.
Rick, have a great trip in August, and please do open up a new thread and post a blow-by-blow account of your adventure - I love referring to your trips to i-MiEV 'doubters'.
