I have a question about my "Speedometer". I have had my car for 8 days now. Last night I drove home on zero battery, as I had a long commute and plugged my car in. It took 14 hours to charge. Seem a bit long, but the level 2 is on its way.
I live in southern CA so it is not cold or anything like that right now, although it did rain a lot yesterday.
This morning my car was fully charged. The first few miles is pretty much all downhill for me.
The graphic on my speedometer showed that I as using gas. At least I think it was. Here is what I saw.
On the outside there is a white line that increases as the the speedometer needle moves. Inside that there is a thin blue line. Inside that there was a thick white line with hashes.
After about 7 miles this thick white line turned into solid blue which I expected it to be from the beginning. When I first noticed the line was white I changed my display so I can see the power source and it showed that it was coming from the battery at times but also from the ICE.
Does anyone know what is going on here? Does the engine run at the beginning of the day to warm up, or likewise does it run until the battery warms up.
Thanks in advance.
