Well I don't know how they were driving it to get such pathetic fuel consumption. I have filled the car up once when it was new, and the tank is still nearly full.It will do 25-30 miles on the batteries at speeds upto about 70mph.The engine only kicks in when the batteries are almost flat, but if you journey is less than about 20 miles, then a 15minute charge will boost the batteries to 80%.So most days I give the batteries a 15 minute boost before I leave home.There's no faffing about with special charging points, it just plugs into a normal 13amp socket.The car also has regenerative braking which means the batteries are also charged when you use the brakes.The batteries are also charged by normal driving when using the petrol engine.The engine acts as a generator.If you don't make long journeys, there's no need to use the petrol engine at all.
