Re: Adapting Basic Hypermiling Techniques to the HCH-II

Thanks.

I have been visiting this and other similar sites for some time now... gee come to think about it... my interests in green car technology go back quite a few years.

Anyhow, most of us will agree that it is pretty hard to realize the potential of our hybrid vehicles by relying solely on the Users's Manual and the kind "expertise" of your local dealerships. That's why sites like this one are so important. As a whole we can amalgamate quite a knowledgebase on what works and doesn't - all for the common goal of saving gas, the environment, and in the long run perhaps a little more than just money.

I just thought that when an individual such as Tarabell places this kind of effort into something that helps a larger groupo of individuals (if not a cause), it ought to be acknowledged.

That's why I registered my first post - just to say thank you... and HI to all!!

Hi Terry:

___If I did not know any better, I would almost bet you work for Barnum and Baileys “Greatest Show on Earth” … or love your HCH-II just as much as Tarabell does

___Good Luck

Re: Adapting Basic Hypermiling Techniques to the HCH-II

Tarabell, like others, I just want to add my thanks for your efforts in writing what clearly is the definitive article on optimizing FE techniques in the HCH II. I was pointed to your article while browsing greenhybrid (thanks, Tiger, for posting that link) a couple weeks back. Your article was no small part of my decision to go ahead and pull the trigger on a new HCH II (my first hybrid). I picked it up last night and, with the fresh benefit of 70-odd miles on the car, read your article again this morning (some of the nuances you describe make more sense after actually having driven the car). I'm psyched about exploring all the techniques you talk about.

Many thanks for taking the time...

Jeff

Re: Adapting Basic Hypermiling Techniques to the HCH-II

Jeff,
Since our usual welcoming committee is on hiatus, let me say hello and I'm very glad you joined our group here. As a new hybrid-owner myself I found driving this car quite a learning curve. I bought it mainly for the HOV stickers and assumed the increased mileage would require no effort on my part. Then...oh the irony....I found the actual fun part of driving it was in the effort.

Hope to hear your experiences and observations!

Re: Adapting Basic Hypermiling Techniques to the HCH-II

Tarabell- I want to add my thanks to the long list from others. I'm so glad I was able to find an article that explained so much, so early after buying my new HCH-II.

I just bought it 2 weeks ago, and have been using your wonderful techniques. I haven't seen the great FE that you have, but then again, there's no way for me to get anywhere I need to get, without hitting huge hills over and over again.

I do have a question, for you, or anyone else that wants to answer- do any of you actually notice, or "feel" the assist? I've tried to see if I could notice, climbed some fairly acute angle hills (very low slope), had my FE at 100, and slowly got my Assist up to 3-4 bars, but haven't been able to notice any differene between a Glide (0 bars both directions) and an Assist of 3-4. Is it possible that the Assist is just being shown, but isn't really working? (I assume it must be working, since my charge level's gone up and down quite a bit)

Thanks,

MoGryph
