But it makes sense (at least to me) because what if the dealer the car with an empty petrol tank and you never plugged in the car. all miles would be recorded as miles derived from the ICE, and you had a similar situation as reported in the the post I copied from Xzion there is no way that the miles gained are miles derived from the ICE

I can answer on the mountain. You can Enter CS mode, and when you turn the car off and then back on, IF you have enough EV milage it will revert to CD mode. We have reasonable mountains here in CO. I've turn my off and after the break had 15miles of EV showing :-) Also if you play with MM recharging, it can be "in CS Mode" and then when you turn it off, there may be enough miles to get it back in CD mode. Happens each trip I take to the airport (which reduces my apparent CS mode mileage on voltstats.net but I can live with that).
My 75mile run (link in my signature) had the EER down to 10, then slowly climbed back upward. But also note the registering of power is slow (In fact, it gained miles while parked after a long downhill run. I recharged a bit hiking and the rest of the chemistry changes and maybe temp allowed the car a few extra miles. ).

Personal best, 82.1 miles on one charge.
