Thanks. I do really want MY I-Pace back. I don’t like driving this thing. BUT it’s better than nothing or something less desirable. I am lucky to have it. I’m about to make my next car payment and I know my car is just sitting on the lot.I understand where you are coming from. You just want to drive the car you bought. I wonder if it is worth a shot to replace the wiring harness and see if that fixes your issue while you wait for the new motor? Not sure the harness would affect the motor speed difference issue, but hey maybe it's worth a shot.
As far as the gas goes, you do have a pretty nice loaner and the miles you put on the loaner presumably mean less miles on the I-Pace from a wear and tear perspective. From a strictly money perspective, the reimbursement rate per mile on a vehicle is $0.56/mile for business related travel. If you look at that as a savings on not driving your I-Pace, it adds up pretty quickly if you drive much. Again, I understand your desire to just have your I-Pace back. Maybe this information makes you feel a little better about buying the gas, maybe not.
Good luck in either case!
