Not actually doing much of anything subversive. The only real change in my behavior is that I'm not sparing the horses. It'd D all the way, baby, driven as hard as I care to drive (or as hard as I feel I can drive while taking into account the range I need for that day). It's doing a super job of bringing pack temps up without any shenanigans on my part. Ride hard, put away wet.
On days that I need to charge, I charge in the usual way - starting at around 3am for 3-4 hours, to stay within Super Off Peak TOU rates. So maybe the car sits fully charged for a couple of hours in the early morning (normal summer temps in the high-60s to mid-70s in my neck of the woods), but no longer.
