I'm down to an estimated 1.5 miles to LBW, 11.2 miles to VLBW at 5.1 miles/kWh, which is what I've been averaging, (29.9% SOC, 18.9% GIDs, 53 GIDs) and want to run it pretty low today to determine my overall range, but don't want to be one block from home and unable to make it up the alley!
First question: LS says 15.0 miles to 5%. Five percent what? SOC? GIDs? Something else?
Is 5% the start of Turtle mode? If not, why "5%" as a prediction setting?
If I want to run it very low, I can do laps in my neighborhood, which has a significant grade down (like, 7 or 8%) to the south of my house and a gentle grade (1 or 2%) up to the north, so if I'm getting very low, I can stay on the north side and have a slight downhill all the way home, except a hundred yards up the alley to my house that climbs about 5 feet. If it turtles, is it a safe bet to go half a mile or so down hill then up the alley?
