Hey everyone,

I have noticed my milage is going down on my fuel consumption even thought i'm driving in full electric mode...i'm not driving hard or anything and the mileage is going down like normal on electric mode?

Why is the fuel consumption mileage going down?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I know this sounds stupid, but it will !.
When you fill up at the petrol station, this will reset your fuel consumption figure.
It will instantly display an average fuel consumption of 300 MPG !.
From this very point the car will try and evaluate your consumption, when the ICE kicks in, this will see the MPG figure plummet.
Also, how have you got your MPG reporting figure set up ?.
It can be set to report in numerous ways.
I had mine to report average MPG over the current tank of fuel after fill up.
