Gary and others who have the SOC meter. Try this to figure out
- whether miles/kwh & the SOC meter are consistant with each other
- if the above is ture, get the actual KWh each point of the SOC represents
Before each trip
- reset the trip odometer and the m/kwh (best done with the dash rather than center console m/kwh)
- note the SOC (call this SOC1)
After the trip
- note the odometer and the m/kwh reading (call this O and MPK)
- note the SOC (call this SOC2)
KWh / soc point = (O/MPK)/(SOC2-SOC1)
If couple of you do this for a week, we can establish whether miles/kwh & the SOC meter are consistant with each other and if so, get to actually define the what the SOC unit represents. (i.e. calibrate the SOC meter).
If we can do this, instead of or in addition to SOC %, we can display actual KWh of ("usable") charge left in the battery.
