    Sounds nice.

    Just curious, but what’s the mileage on a hot, sultry, rainy night when you need the AC, headlights and windshield wipers on?

    I mean, as long as we’re tossing figures around, that one should also be answered, right?

  2. Sure. I will tell you they are accurate more to miles in these cars. However with HEAT OR AC on it’ll drop that range. Unless they then put the car in eco mode and drive really good.
