I (perhaps stupidly) drove it home the 200 miles, so let's just say it was a --long-- journey home, with charging (and napping) stops. Can't say that I'd do that again, but it was an adventure and I met a lot of nice folks along the way. EV owners are a kind & generous bunch!
Now to figure out how the Guessometer actually works. I call it the Stress-o-meter for now... highway speeds sure did take a bite out of the range, so I learned to slow down and take my time.
Be sure to print yourself a copy of Tony Williams' range charts, for your level of degradation: viewtopic.php?t=4295
You should probably opt for the 82% chart for the 24kWh battery, as that will be a bit conservative for you: https://www.dropbox.com/s/sfufez3dcdvrvu9/LEAFrangeChartVersion7G82.pdf?dl=0
or you could use the 93% chart if you want to push things, as you've still got all 12 bars: https://www.dropbox.com/s/wczgxhs5e91i7og/LEAFrangeChartVersion7G93.pdf?dl=0
Just make sure you print the English rather than metric version!
