Re: Why high revs in the FEH going up hills?
Although I don't own an FEH ( I have a HCHII), I'm pretty sure that if you take any car in cruise control up a hill the rpms will shoot up pretty high to maintain speed if the incline is steep enough. My HCHII would easily go above 3000rpm going up an incline in cruise if I didn't use the decel button to bring down the cruise speed. Especially when going up a hill in cruise, the car wants to increase rpms more than increase the amount of assist. You should either not use assist going up the incline or hit the decel button to bring down the rpms.
*edit: It seems like you are already using the coast button (same as decel on the HCHII) to bring down the rpms, thats a good way to keep the rpms down if you are using cruise. What you are observing is normal.
