[QUOTE=Cobb;257328]I dont see why you are shifting out of drive.
Thought I explained that I gain more momentum in neutral than I do when in "D". As long as the battery is close to max., why expend energy converting some of that speed into electricity (slowing the vehicle down in the process) when that speed can be used directly instead? (direct use of energy > amt being converted and stored in the battery).
I do tap the pedal just enough to cut off the gas being used, but the momentum is still a decent amount less than being in neutral And I've also shut off the battery to see if it made a difference in the coasting ability, but it doesn't appear to be equal to the speed i can get when in neutral. Hence the question.
I doubt the difference is much at all, but thought I'd ask anyway.
