Hey All,

Which is the more fuel efficient way of driving on 50+ mile one way drives? I know people have preferences but has anyone measured it? Does anyone know which is the most and least fuel efficient?

1. EV on streets. Hybrid on highway. EV (if remaining) on streets after exiting highway.

2. Hybrid from the very start to the end of the trip, on highway and streets.

3. EV to start on streets. EV on highway until battery charge is used up. And Hybrid for the remainder of the trip on highway and streets.

I drive in EV mode until the battery is out. Then while on the freeway I put the car in Sport mode. This has the best EV regeneration when taking my foot off the accelerator. I usually can recharge about 9 miles while driving in traffic on a 20 mile trip. Then when I exit the freeway I go back to EV mode.

However, leaving it in Hybrid mode will probably give you the same results. The E Tron is pretty smart.
I just like to play with all the drive modes manually.
