Why don't you guys compare notes... That way we all win!

Ya, wouldn't that be awesome!
Phil, why do we not measure these 22.5kWh (281.25 Gid) when our typical dash miles/kWh divided by miles driven (when driven all the way from 281 Gid to 1 or 2 Gid)?
More typical is 18-21.5-ish kWh, depending largely on temperature. For example, I drive 100 miles, and average 4.8 miles/kWh, that infers 100/4.8=20.8kWh.
Also, for the sake of continuity, might I suggest that we simply consider SOC that we have access to. I recognize the battery has more, but I think of it as fuel sloshing around in the gas tank that the fuel pump can't access. Yes, there's a little more in there, but we've already burnt 100% of the usable and available energy.
Finally, a request. Can we please bump up the cell voltage from 4.1v to 4.2v ?
