Yes, you can beat 6 miles/bar at 60. Trying to keep the formulas simple and easy to remember for those of us that aren't technically adept.

So;

7/50
6/60
5/70

Etc

One error I noted: 10.5 bars appears as if it should actually be 9.5 bars... Also, anyone have any idea what speed City and Worst is? I'm guessing around 45 and 85 respectively... Best should be around 38, theoretically...

you are correct. it should be 9.5 bars...since an 80% (83%) charge now yields only 9.5 bars of charge. the 10th bar drops too fast to be a full bar.

My guess, from my chart, is that "best" is 38 mph. Worst, I don't know.

Here is my take. Note that OP's idea was simplicity - not accuracy. So, you will see things like losing more miles between 50 & 60 compared to 60 & 70.

BTW, I removed any range in turtle mode at higer speeds. You can't go that fast in turtle mode.

I asked this question earlier in the thread without response, so I'll try again: I assume these estimates are based on the "D" setting and not on ECO mode. Is this assumption correct? If so, how much extra range can be squeezed out of ECO mode?

D & Eco don't matter much - what matters to a certain extent is whether you are being careful with acceleration & braking. May be Eco mode helps there somewhat, personally I've not found any difference in m/kwh I get.
