Interesting...I received the 'low battery' warning (fuel icon) at 11 miles and one bar remaining going around 38mph not 70mph. Maybe that was because I was getting 5.5m/kwh?TonyWilliams wrote:One bar remaining should closely associate with the battery low warning, and zero bars should associate with the "very low" warning. These two warnings are based are measured "hard" values of battery power. The underlined values are estimated miles remaining.
Speed in MPH......38....50...60....70...Battery Value and percent battery remaining
Very Low Warn....10.....7....6.......5.....24.....8.50%
Turtle mode........about 1 mile..........5......1.70
Stop using the guess0meter !!!! Rely on the fuel bars, and when you're down to zero fuel bars, use the data points I provided with first the Battery and then Very Low warnings. Reset your trip odometer as soon as you get one of those warnings and look on the chart to determine your range.LEAFfan wrote:

Oh, so you are saying that I actually had 20 miles left when I was down to one bar and saw the low fuel icon?TonyWilliams wrote:You are missing the point if you are using your "guess o meter" to indicate that you have 11 miles. As has been stated numerous times, those numbers are NOT ACCURATE.
The chart I provided will give you the range based on the ACTUAL numeric value of power left in the battery (I included the raw data values in bold; 48, 24, 5) and the calculated remaining power remaining. The remaining calculation is the miles per kilowatt, roughly 10 miles at 38mph, reducing to 5 miles at 70mph.

And this one is useful for what exactly? Certainly not for general use. Or do we get different charts for different temperature bands and different wind conditions and different terrain, all revised on a yearly basis to reflect battery pack degradation?TonyWilliams wrote:Use the chart that is posted by Mogur. It's useless to debate the guessOmeter numbers
