Each time I "start" my car I have noticed energy consumption jumps to around 550-600 Wh/ mile for the first 3-5 miles then drops to a more reasonable level. Does anyone else get this? Has anyone recieved a good explaination for this phenomenon? I'm driving 20-30 MPH when it happens so I can't blame it on driving style. Also it corrects to 350 Wh/mile by the time I am at freeway speed (65-70 mph). Weird huh?
