Not to be too confrontational, but I call BS. To only regen once every 1300 miles means your average speed for the entire 24hr clock is 54.2mph. It's just not realistic. You have to stop for fuel. And unless you live on the on/off ramp, there is some distance of slow driving with stops and turns. A short distance at low speed drags the average down fairly quickly. Even on a long distance trip where you pull off the freeway only to get fuel and/or food/lodging that is less than 1/2 mile from the freeway, you would still likely not have an average speed above 50mph.
Look at the trip computer in the display between the gauges. At the bottom, it tells you the average speed since you last reset the trip computer. The average speed is not just while moving, but accounts for the time spent idling in your driveway or at a stop light. It is a running clock of when the engine is running divided by the distance traveled during that time-span. It likely reads in the high 20's to low 30's. For reference, 28mph average get 670 miles, and 32mph gets 770. If you are doing a lot of highway driving you could be in the 35-40mph range, which translates to 840-960 miles between regens, and would allow for very short trips to the fueling station, a minute or two here and there for start-up idle, driving to and from the freeway, etc.
It really pretty simple to calculate - take the average speed from the trip computer and multiply by 24. That's how many miles you get between regens, unless you do a lot of short trip, stop-and-go city driving where you regen more frequently than mandated by the ECU internal clock which is every 24hrs of engine run time.
