Good information. A couple of questions:

1. What was your elevation before and at the end of the test run?

2. Did you hit the electric only button so that you were certain the engine never turned on? (I've noticed that if not in sport it can be pretty quiet.)

One of my problems is that where I live in the Santa Monica Mountains there are lots of elevation changes. During my gentlest run, which I previously reported, there was an elevation change of about +450 feet over 12 miles and I drove over slightly rolling hills. I suspect the "up to 15 miles" (or 35-37 kms) range is tested where the elevation does not change.
