Re: setting messed up

OCTOBER 30 2018 You mention things that I cannot find in my instruction book, but it appears to be the car that is different from both books. We are talking about the screen infront of the steering wheel and not the larger coloured screen. I have sat in the car with my computer following your instru...

Re: PHEV - Questions and Advice

I feel I may have misled you, I used 4 miles of petrol to get 5 miles of EV, the other 9 miles where after I had used up the EV, I did the same journey yesterday, used the same procedure and only gained 3 miles with the same petrol. I find it difficult to keep it slow enough using auto, about 7 mph ...

Re: PHEV - Questions and Advice

I am certainly confused by this SPORT MODE, a while back I had a 24 mile journey there and back, when I got almost there (23 miles) I had to go off road, in order to keep the speed down I switched to SPORT and the car set in 2nd, I reduced speed back to 1st (1 mile there 1 mile back) the EV mileage ...

Re: PHEV - Questions and Advice

Jerrytaff When you got your car was KIA not installing a charge point for free, I could have had one fitted but I tried to get them to fit an alternative charger. As we have SOLAR I wanted to fit a charger to take advantage of all the surplus power we were producing on bright summer days, yet not ta...

Re: PHEV - Questions and Advice

You will find that the petrol engine hardly ever runs unless you accelerate very fast going uphill, in winter you are correct it needs to run for AC, I am not sure about the AC in summer. I have not found any indication that the ICE is running other than the sound. I am not sure I understand the las...

Re: E-Niro test drive

Surely it must be 3.6 miles per kw or better still 4.4 miles per kw which is about what I get with my PHEV, I put in according to my charger 8.7KW and travel 35-36 miles if it is a warm day, 28-30 if it is cold

I think my maths are correct, 3.6 kw per mile = 0.30 x 3.6 =1.08
