Most of the time I use the brakes I don't come to a full stop, so I can't see the brake score. Am I correct in assuming that I'm still recovering energy even if I don't come to a full stop? I think that's actually better, because you don't have to get the car moving from a full stop, thus using even more energy that you gain by stopping all the way.
I'm starting to doubt this because the battery doesn't seem to really charge from the regen bakes when I do this and my Regen miles are pretty low. Please tell me I'm not insane ! I've seen decent recharges when I get off the highway (60 mph) and come to a complete stop - it charges about 1/4 of the battery.
I'm also letting go of the gas pedal and coats to a light, and only use the brakes for the last portion of the trip, so I don't get a lot of use out of the regen brakes - the car seems to want to stop on its own! I can't estimate distances very well, so can't say how quickly it slows down, but it's definitely faster than my manual Gti. My wife noticed this too - it doesn't coast as far as a gas car does.
