Usually not to full. EVgo cuts off after 30 minutes so that's what we get. Typically somewhere in the 90% range, then it's back to 80% by the time she gets home. I'd say the total charge vacillates between 20%ish and 90%ish

Sounds good but you should be pushing SOC down a bit. To get to 90% you have be starting over 50% SOC. You use 10% to get home. Suggest starting SOC at 30-40% Charge will finish in high 70's or low 80's
