Sometime, a lot more
than 15 miles.
...Both times I drove this route last Summer (2016) I got the LBW just before the summit, and made it home after another ~81 miles, without reaching the VLBW...
I drove that same trip again last Summer, BTW, using my nine-capacity-bar
OE pack 2011.
Regen will cancel the LBW (at ~4.4 kWh LBC-indicated capacity, If I recall correctly) for my LEAF, a regular occurrence in my mountainous region.
Back to the OP's question, I have never needed to use the capacity below VLBC regularly myself, but IIRC, forum members have reported canceling both VLB and turtle using regen.
