You shouldn't have any problems. Modern computer-controlled fuel injected engines don't have the problems older cars used to have. Of course electric motors don't care what the altitude is. I recently took mine across Southern Pennsylvania, through the Allegheny mountains (OK, hills), low mileage going up and fantastic mileage coming down. Averaged about 46 mpg on that leg of the trip.
