I'm not sure if we decided to use the term ROPES or not. This is in regard to the engine coming on when the battery is full. In the past, when this has occurred the engine usually turns itself off after about 5 minutes (when it reaches a specific temperature), but today was different. I wasn't going very far and the engine stayed on for the entire 10 minute commute. Distance was about 4Km and the numbers on the GOM (both HV and EV) went down by about 4Km. Especially annoying in this mode is when the engine continues to run at a red light, which I'm pretty sure is entirely unlike any other hybrid. Here's my new observation: When I arrived at my destination, I shifted into REVERSE to back into a parking spot. At the exact moment I pushed the button, the engine turned off and I was back in EV. Now, this may be a coincidence and I'm wondering if anyone else can confirm a similar experience? The next time it happens, I will definitely pull over and try shifting into reverse sooner to see if I can force the engine off. I will post my results.
