I hear you. We stated the run home at 2pm and was back home (north of Chicago) around 10:30. The 340 miles was enough for me for the day, and I felt pretty pooped the next morning)partially due to a large cup of late coffee). 400-500 is about all I would want to muster in a day, and barring charger outage, the car will do that just fine.
The extra top off (to be careful, but not strictly necessary) and stupid phone call with EA (though still worth almost $20 in free charging) cost us close to an hour in delay, but such is the price of venturing into the wild outside of larger cities.
Our next large run is to Minneapolis, which is 410 or so miles each way. May try to do it in one stop if we are bold. If nothing else to quiet all the complaining about the new Leaf. The line has been a good car with little to no maintenance (from experience with our 13).
I am hearing more and more horror stories about Tesla 3 repairs (time to repair and costs) as time continues and their supply chain has struggled to catch up-to the 30x scale they are expanding to cover. Given the hyperscaling they are doing, I think the other automakers only have a year or two left to really innovate, and maneuver but are profit trapped and market prevented from spending the needed capital to make the transition. For a while I though Nissan might compete, but not so sure 7 years on. Such is the way of the world.
I am keen to see if the little bit of taping (just for trips) will help us eek out another 5-10 miles a charge on the highway. Taping the grill helped quite a bit on the old leaf, especially on winter runs.
