On my way home from work today the strangest thing happened -- the fuel level LCD (17-bar battery status gauge) appeared to become an efficiency gauge. When I accelerated strongly the bars dropped dramatically from 17 to 3! But when I let off of the throttle and went into regen braking the bars all came back. I immediately pulled over and turned the bike off and back on, but this continued to happen. If I accelerated gradually a few bars would disappear, then reappear when I leveled off at a stable speed. The effect was directly proportional to the amount of acceleration and this continued during my ride home (20 miles). The bars didn't drop off as I rode, but continued to indicate the level of acceleration all the way home. I can't believe this was some sort of bizarre coincidence -- rather I wonder if I somehow found a feature that shouldn't have been activated.
I turned the bike off and on a couple of more times later, but to no avail. How do I put it back?! The only other think I noticed was that the estimated range gauge was always at zero miles.
I plan to charge overnight and see if it somehow resets itself tomorrow.
Anyone else experience this?
P.S. for Prius drivers -- this is exactly like the efficiency gauge on the Prius when the LCD display varies with acceleration from the 'Eco' to the 'Power' portion of the gauge.
