Stay off 91 and take 5 to 116.
I'm aware of the QCs in Brattleboro and Greenfield. There is no charge to park in that garage after 6PM, so that's a free charge on the ClipperCreek L2. I see it's just $1 for the QC in Brattleboro, so cost is not an issue. But I've been trying to limit QC to 1-2 times a month at most. I could have stopped in Greenfield on the way home, just thought I'd make it. I suspect if I begin that trip with closer to a full charge, say 95%, drive slower, and recharge at the L2 for a half hour or so I would have 65-70% SOC to make it the 40 miles back home.
I-91 is a fairly straight drive, which I find appealing. Are you suggesting to avoid it because of the high speeds of other drivers? Google maps offers Rt 63 if wanting to avoid the interstate highway. It says taking Rt 63 is 3 miles shorter than I-91 and only 3 minute longer time. Might have to try that, or Rt 5 and 116. Must admit, I really like the idea of efficient driving in this car.
