102 MPGe @ 1420 mile

(Caveat: when I got the car it had 64 miles with around 70 MPGe)

I usually see between 120 and 150 during a round trip. I get between 6 and 10 mi/ kWh to work, and 2 to 4 mi / kWh driving back home (I live on a hill). I've seen around 230 MPGe driving to work. I don't have a consistent driving habit, but practically always take the same route. Sometimes I use the heater, and it makes a big difference. I have been driving, so far, with the stock tires.

My numbers improved overall, after the first month or two. But I'm not sure why.
I think the main reason for the increase is the tires wearing in.

I would see a 5-10% reduction in fuel economy on my Prius with a new set of tires that would improve over ~5000 miles.

4200 miles...Onboard m/kWh is 5.5 mi/kWh = 185 mpge. The on star mpge report is listing me at 20 kWh consumed per 100 miles. So 5mi/kWh= 170 mpge including the 'charging loss'

updated Feb 22 2016. Winter took a big hit on efficiency. Lifetime mpg e onboard now at 5.1miles/kWh or 173 mpgE. With 10% line loss that is reduced to 156 mpgE lifetime (6000 miles)

onStar # is lower at 136 mpgE. (ONstar figuring much more charging loss? like 20% )

Almost to the 50K mark. I am at 49,808 now with 127 mpge. I moved recently so I do not sit in traffic and usually drive 80 to 85 mph so my mpge has declined quite a bit. Fortunately I get free charge by my house so doesn't really matter what my mpge is.

Are you working close to the range limit of the Spark?

Are you hypermiling because you need to, or are you playing a game with the wife?

I cruise to work with all my pals in the left lane, 70-80 mph in a 65. Occasionally bump the 90 mph limit. We can't drive 55 !!!
Why be cheap if you are already driving the least expensive way there is?

Please don't make a bad name for small EV's...

You gave Elon a free kick-starter loan.
How long will I be driving a Bolt before you have a '$35k' Tesla?

(actually I don't need a Bolt. The Spark EV suits me perfectly with a big free DCFC network around town.)
Used '14 2LT w/ DCFC.
+67 K miles. Mostly free electrons! Only one LONG visit to the shop....
GM needs Modern Troubleshooting tools for Modern EV's.
