btw if interested I'd recommend using an ODB II data logger (bluetooth to be easier) for more detailed data, may need one with CAN support. Not sure if you'll need one with proprietary audi protocol support like from http://www.ross-tech.com. Can probably pull temp, velocity, load, etc, and then combine with cell for GPS, or if lucky even get GPS from car too.

I have a generic OBD-II bluetooth reader but I don't know yet what information it's putting out. I'll test that soon with the Torque app. Hopefully someone is able to build an app like the Leaf and Tesla owners have that can access deeper data and stats.

There are no major hills or mountain passes along this route and the highway maintains a fairly steady grade. There is an overall elevation change of 544 feet, however, this is mostly negated by driving back along the same route. There was also a 5mph wind that was also negated by driving the same route. Roads were dry and overall these were optimal driving conditions with ambient temperature about 76 degF.
Thanks for doing this. The numbers being reported here have made me reconsider my cancellation. If there was a referral system, I'd use your link!

I signed the papers on an Edition One earlier today. Taking delivery tomorrow. I had not expected to be so wowed by the car. Drove a Premium Plus demo today and made up my mind a couple miles in. Great driving car.
