With regards to hx value: I have noticed that if i drive my Leaf in B-mode arround 50-60 mph on the highway, and i drive the car for 2 seconds with full throttle, then 2 seconds no throttle, again 2 seconds full throttle, then 2 seconds no throttle and so on for half a 'tank' of power, the hx value increases a lot (from 97% to 102,5%).
Anybody knows what that means?
what you are doing is simply running a lot of current thru your pack in a very short period of time. no different than the boost in numbers seen when you fast charge... not sure I would recommend your actions on a regular basis.
in the general scheme of things; there is only ONE guaranteed way of insuring greater longevity of your pack and this driving efficiently.
no saying that anyone else can match me but if I am averaging 4.8 miles per kwh and someone else is averaging 3.8 miles per kwh, then it stands to reason that my pack will last longer due to less cycling but that is only the beginning. Gentler driving means a less stressful battery life. now how extreme is the damage done from this type of driving? minimal I think but in your case, you are artificially increasing your cycle count for no real benefit.
This is another reason I am a fan of neutral driving. it is stress free miles
