Going to miss my Active E…

So…  a little less than sixteen days until I return the Active E to BMW.

I had a great commute on the way into work today, which usually means that the commute home this afternoon will be heck…

You know that the freeways were good when you’re average speed for your journey is 55MPH…


Mine was a very good day…

Granted, that meant that I used up a bit of battery getting to the office


However, I was surprisingly efficient for someone averaging as fast as I was going today.


That’s equivalent to 333.33 Watt Hours per Mile. Still pretty efficient.

Especially for a car that has


a lot of miles…

Then again, I did use 68% SOC just to travel about fifty miles…


There’s that.

I said it before… I’m going to miss my Active E.
