powersurge what is your secret? How are you charging and to what levels? I think I am going to try to follow in your tire tracks with my 2018.

Well, I almost exclusively use the Level II in my garage, and chargepoint stations. I Used a Level III fast QC about once a month when I go beyond my normal round trip. I think that it has also been important to not go below 25% charge. I also do not leave it charged for long periods. I set the car to start charging automatically at about 6 in the morning, and it is fully charged when I leave for work at 8-8:30 am. I get home from work in the afternoons with about 40%-%50 charge. I Plug the car into my charger overnight, but it does not charge until the morning.

I guess that the secret is to leave the car at 50% when you are not using it....
