Thanks for the trip report.
Will be doing the same route later this summer....
The biggest difference for me is that only in ECON Mode does the accelerator click point prevent the ICE from starting accidentally.
Ours was in our garage. I don't where the one on the other side of town was. I think there might be three or four here, but I'm only certain of two. It's difficult to buy one when dealers don't carry them. We flew to Salt Lake city and drove home in ours.
If you'd like let us know when. Maybe I can track down the one other I know about and we can all meet. As long as it's not when we are in Russia that is.
I have found the HV Charge option to be worthwhile when I forget to hit HV after a rest stop and run down the battery to just a few bars. It will charge up to 25/26 miles of EV range for my driving habits) and than shut off automatically. This ensures I have enough battery reserve to summit the mountain passes easily. Happy camper.
You have made a Honda Clarity engineer somewhere smile.
I tried that feature for the first (and hopefully last) time this past week. I was on an HV-mode trip, and just wanted to check it out for a few minutes. You are right, though. There are certain situations where it is useful, like the one you mentioned.
A simple checklist taped somewhere in view might be useful as a memory aid.
Could add LKAS....As Desired
I always want LKAS to be on when I am above 45 mph so I turn it on when I first start the car along with Brake Hold.
For Trip Meter you can set it to automatically reset each time you start, but yes if want to control it you would have to leave it set to manual. I guess I am feeling spoiled but I would like to have three trip meters, one that resets on fuel fill up, one that resets each time I start out, and one that I control manually.
I vote for 8.5 gallons and a spare tire
What sucks is you cannot just have the accelerator click point without the gimped HVAC setting. So, for me, normal or sport mode it is.
