Do any of you have the same situation? Or i will park the car with 5 or 6 blue bars showing, and when i start up the car an hour later or so, it has gone down to 2 pink bars. At one point on a trip up the mountains (a one time occurance as i live in the flat desert), i got down to only one pink bar. But the car always replenishes back to blue and sometimes to green. Have any of you experienced this?
Here is the first post. It didn't have anything to do with saving energy. Though what you are suggesting probably works if that is what you are trying to do. I get 50-52 MPG while keeping myself comfy all the way.
