an interesting pic---
had driven thru an area that was 50 degrees.
a while later- my dash displays ICE POSSIBLE DRIVE WITH CAUTION... dash displays 33 degrees... 32....
WTF ? ? ---- Im thinking malfunction.....
and I crack open the window--- whoa---- cold...
it keeps dropping to 26. Just surprissed me that temp dropped like that. (for me-- thats the coldest temp Ive ever driven in). nothing compared to what some of your get....
was also doing 65 ish and was near hitting 26 MPG.
was curious about the temp reading in metric- so switched over

after driving 217.7 miles... there is still a 336 mile range.

Until I paid more attention to your post, I thought that you had your Traverse up to 100+ mph. :happy:
