Indeed.  Next week we’re going for an outing in Bend including a side trip up and around crater lake.

There wasn’t much traffic so I was able to maintain a similar speed of 35-40 both up and down from a specific spot at the bottom of Timberline road.  I got back just about 50% of what was expended going up.  I think that’s pretty good considering the wind resistance at 35 mph.  The car gives you integer kWh but you can get a more precise number by multiplying the wh/mile by miles.
