Great numbers and progress on the vampire drain. I think I'm down to about 1 mile/day, but haven't had a chance for the car to be idle for more than a day recently to find out.

To hit the 240 miles, what watt per mile figure do you need to hit? If you can do 200 watts,or 5 miles/kWh can you do 275 miles on a charge to empty?
Apparently the SR+ battery is 62 kWh and ~55 kWh useable. I have never charged the vehicle all the way to 100% max user capacity nor taken down close to 0. I should have a better feel for this in a few weeks when we take our first road trip.
So it seems one would need 230 Wh/mi to hit 240 range. I would expect this to happen at freeway legal speeds based on my driving habits.
My current running 200 Wh/mi is mostly 0-52 mph on streets with a few stop lights and a couple stop signs, 7 miles round trip commute.
