Do some driving around the city in all electric, add in some combined sporty driving. That battery will fully discharge, you better believe.
Uh... Sorry, no. Apparently you have no idea what PHV is.

Edit: jdong has a perfect explanation there. I think you should read that first. If you are a gear head, you should understand it.
