    I wonder if the writer of this article knows that batteries get depleted FASTER IN COLD WEATHER THAN IN WARM WEATHER. I've heard reports of people getting as low as 25 miles on the battery before the engine kicks in to start charging the battery, but that's in 20F weather outside. When it gets up into the 70's and 80's, those same people say that the battery gets them 35 miles before the engine kicks in to keep the battery charged.
