Yes, you can choose to save the battery, JimElliot. On the point of hybrid mode once the battery range is depleted, I find the mpg exceptional - did 600 miles around Wales last week, mostly slow mountain / hill roads, and no day returned worse than 44mpg, some up to 48mpg. Dual carriage way/ motorway on flattish roads in England cruising at 65 with light traffic, I frequently get over 50mpg.

Yes. There is a Charge Hold in the menu (swipe right) which will stop the battery from being used. You also have a charge function so you can charge the battery whilst driving however this would hammer your fuel economy so there would only be a very few occasions where you would want to use this
