Huh, far too complicated for the average driver? It's just a table. Are we assuming that the average driver can't read a simple table?

As long as Tony based his chart on reliable data, I think it's amazingly useful.

I think he was commenting on the graph in the original thread. I'll move these comments to original graph thread.

How about a link back to that in the OP in this thread, so we can go reference it? I never saw the original, and some of the comments relating the two have me tilting my head like Nipper.

Thanks--

PS--great chart, btw!

I find that those top two lines are kind of inspiring on their own...
And there goes the first capacity bar! At 24,000 mi on 9/9/2013.
Second bar at 30,500 mi on 2/7/2015.

I added my own touch to your chart and added the latest SOC i could find, along with 80% charge and a few more miles/bar.

Wow. Glad so many liked it. I made it for my wife's range anxiety, and intend to laminate the final product and clip it to the driver's sun visor.

My "training", of course is to completely ignore the crazy range predictions on the car's fuel gauge. Also, ignore the chart bar data when the first hard data point happens at "Low Batt Warn".

As soon as that pops up, reset a trip odometer to zero and based on the chart, you'll have a very accurate idea of how far you can really go. The cross check is to be able to predict, with the trip odometer, when "Very Low Batt Warn" comes on, and ultimately know when "Turtle" is immanent.

I purposely left out any technical stuff she doesn't care about. Just provided data at a certain speed in mostly ideal conditions provides this many miles. She doesn't care how many KW or % that is.
