It takes a little bit on highway driving and a long exit ramp to get there (or a complete stop on the highway in a traffic jam), but it's possible.

Hey Speedy! LOL   Yeah I got mine up there a few times, then drove over 60 MPH and kept it out of EV, and thats about the only time I actually was able to see above 40.

Are you saying that you were going 83 in electric vehicle mood, or that you got the high voltage battery up to maximum charge?  I have one of these old fashion hybrids, that only averages 40 mpg day in and day out. ;-)

I got the battery up to a maximum charge (I was stopped when I took the picture). The '13 Hybrid only goes up to 62 MPH in EV mode - I was burning gas!

I figured as much but my dealership is full of BS because I don't think they have anybody QUALIFIED to work on a HybridI called Ford Corp. and have a case number now.

Fully charged, so that's what it looks like. LoL.

Every so often I can see the battery in my 10 hit full, but only when its in a conditioning cycle, or I went down a very long hill with brakes on.  Normally it sits at 50%.  Big difference between these years.

Driving around LA I can get mine fully charged very easily. Sometimes I wish there would be more battery somewhere for additional energy storage.

Look at Post # 207 in Wrong Shifter Thread for my Offical Ford Service Report on the Battery and other things. My Ford dealer didn't fix or even look at. LOL.

Its funny.

 

In the winter due to the front end grill shutters being wide open and the engine cold it would run continuously and I would always see a full charge. Now in the spring / summer?

 

Its all of a sudden hard to keep a charge with the AC draining it :)

 

What I find interesting is that the Air Conditioning compressor uses a ton of electricity. If you look a the energy consumption display I've seen it go as high as 2 KW! That's more than your household window bound Air Conditioner. It usually drops off to about 1 KW or 1/2 KW but still.

I'm lucky to not have had to really use my A/C yet. The fan and a few windows/sunroof open does the trick so far. It's actually kind of annoying how the A/C comes on when I turn on climate ... Is there a setting to have it turn on using my last used settings?

Just a note, just because that guage shows full doesn't mean it is.

 

Check the bigger screen that shows where the power is going during regenerative braking (the main screen, drawing a blank on what its called).  If when braking there is a circle around the Battery dot, then the battery is NOT charged and is still charging.  If the circle goes away and the Battery dot is not blue, then the battery is fully charged.

 

I found this out after seeing a friend up at UMD in Duluth, MN.  There is a VERY long and steap hill to get back to the highway from the main campus, and almost every time I go down it, the battery fully charges (circle goes away, I feel the actuall brakes kick in).  When that happens, I shift to L to save my brakes since the regenning is no longer doing anything.

 

Keep an eye on that.  Just because the battery guage shows full doesn't mean it is, so you may be wasting power if you shift to L to save your brakes prematurly.

 

 

 

Edited for typos.
