Re: GOM's range is 2 times off!

Dave is telling you to set a range margin that only leaves about 2% of the capacity in reserve, and can result in cell damage. I strongly disagree with that. The LBW and VLBW are useful markers for how far you can safely go without harming the battery. Also remember to recharge immediately after a trip if you go below 20%. If the battery is hot at the end of a trip that dips below 20%, recharge just long enough to get back up to 20-25%, and fully recharge later.
