:Banane06: Greetings all, Bart here. PA resident, 100 mile a day commute. Mad scientist type, Test Engineer/Field eng tech by trade. Looking to learn as much as possible to improve my economy. Pet Peeve= I can't go buy a reasonably priced electric car for 50 miles each way over 1 big hill. I know battery and motor technology pretty well, the technology is CERTAINLY out there Grrrr. Recently acquired a 2000 Toyota Echo, currently averaging in the 40's (MPG) Have ELM327 and XP netbook with hokey software (no averaging). Next step; software with averaging and a dedicated Arduino or Raspberry Pi for all my driving-educational needs.
