My numbers are right in line with yours, and I've taken this car down to turtle 4 times to verify them. I use 81 miles of range estimate at 60mph, and 72 miles at 80% on my latest chart
. The super important numbers (to me, anyway) are when you're down to below both any fuel bars and (thankfully) Guess-O-Meter numbers, and only have the Battery warnings to judge distance. I'm very confident, now, what distance I can go.
Of course, it would help me if I had a bit more battery in the car !
It's all handwaving and guessing...the real number could be more or less than 21...it could even be 24 and the mpk readout is off. The only thing I care about is being able to reliably predict range. Using 21 kWh does the trick.
Exactly. I really don't care what the kW number is, except what I'm paying for out of the wall. What we all should care about is the range.
