Trying to make sense ?

Trying to make a bit of sense to the readings on my dash ?
The miles to fill up read 380 and i drove 24 miles most of it was on EV but the miles to fill up has counted down 24 miles and now reads 356 how does this work if i have driven mostly sensible on EV ?
Can anyone explain to a new Ioniq Hybrid owner ?

I shouldn't worry about it , the GOM is constantly recalculating the mileage to next fill up based on driving trends . Driven sensibly it will stick on a miles to refill figure for some time

Yes, there are three variables that need to be considered:
1: Fuel Range
2: Battery range
3: Total range allowing for the variation of both and the variation on the consequential range caused both the former and latter together with the impact of driving style and road conditions.

Number three is a consequential calculation derived from the impact of the fuel and battery with your driving style.
Driving style is not a considered function in estimated fuel range.

The thing doesn't recalculate...it only goes down on every trip ?... don't get me wrong obviously it will come down but i have purposely driven on EV to see what mpg i get but it seems to drop the miles to fill up exactly the same number as my journey so i can't work out what it is telling me !

When the hybrid runs in EV mode it doesn’t run for free. It depletes the battery, which will eventually be recharged by ICE using fuel. Treat EV mode as a credit on your fuel account.

Won't driving a hybrid in EV mode reduce the overall performance (converting and storing fossil energy in the battery, getting it out again with losses)? This would reduce the overall range. If the last weeks average performance would be calculated into the mpg estimate you would have to stay in EV mode almost permanently. I think this is not possible with the hybrid (it needs to charge at some time).
Best range would be to run on fossil and use the breaks only when really needed. Recycle the lost energy through the battery (at least partially) and keep space left in the battery to be able to do this. The goal shouldn't be to charge the battery and run in EV the next trip.

Was that on a lot of small journeys ? It rarely in EV only runs when cold .Even though the gauge may state that EV is on , the ICE is probably running too when cold . You say the range is 380 miles .Is that from a full tank ? If so that's very wrong . In winter I've never seen my range less that 500 miles and in the Spring it's mid 600s

Can I explain it...probably not, but I can tell you what I have observed in my Ioniq.

BTW: I'm also a new owner, had min less than a month.

I have a commute to work of about 21 miles, I have seen it where I'll be about 10 miles in but yet I can see that miles left to refill has dropped by about 20 already. But then I'll look a few minutes later and I've gone several miles and it hasn't Changed.

I think of it as a rough guesstimation! :-)

Enjoy the ride

Bogwoppitt what type of driving are you doing and what is your MPG ?
I got my hybrid a couple of months ago and my MPG is around 54 (lots of hills round us)
On a run iv'e had 63.
Where are you located by the way ?

No the 380 is what it was saying was left in the tank..(only had it 10days and when i filled it up from pick up the gauge said 508 til fill up) i did think that this was a bit low for a car like this but as i have said if i do a journey the number drops the same amount as the journey and yes all fairly short journeys since i got it not had chance to try a longer run yet.
