Trip Actual – Kelowna via Revy in Sep

Here is the actual trip data from the September trip to Kelowna via Revelstoke and back along Highway 3. If you compare this to my predictions you will see that I often estimate that I will use more energy than I actually do for legs that involve significant elevation changes; and I think it is skewed more towards trip legs with more elevation loss than gains. I think the car does much better at regaining energy on downhills than I accounted for in my spreadsheet (at least at highway speeds).

He is very passionate about the future of energy generation & usage.He prefers bikes to cars, but acknowledges that Canadian cities have been developed primarily with cars in mind, so if we're going to drive, let's make them all EVs!(But let's get EV buses and take those where possible first.)
