Consumption In Winter

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody, this is my first winter with my 2007 RX400h - so maybe my question is stupid, but I want to give it a chance before I´ll go to the dealer. Simply - as temperature went down to 7°C or bellow, consumption has increased from usual 9 litres to 11-12 litres/100km. I noticed that although the battery is around 75% charged, the gas engine turns on much more often than times before. Somebody told me that in cold times the system tries to keep the engine warm and that´s why. So I drive through the city with full battery on gas...no error message at the board or display. Did you experience the same?

Many thanx, Petr.
