I still think I need to see a year's worth of data before I have any real confidence in the new battery and the software change.
Great initial report but what is farthest you have driven? Largest DoD?
Unless you pop off a 110 mile run, we hold judgment.
Never going to happen. Due to the terrain where I'm living, best I'm ever going to get is about 90 mi. Changing to Michelin Defenders cost me about 5-6% mileage as well. It was a trade off for durability and better handling over the stock tires. I have discharged the battery down to 3% at 84 miles or so (hot day, A/C blasting, 2000 ft elevation change each way). On flat terrain, in cooler weather, I could probably get 110 mi on a charge. but I live up in the mountains where the temps hit 100 regularly. Maybe during the spring or fall i might get 95 mi to turtle with careful driving but that's about it.
