Carbuff, also remember the car's battery heaters kick in when the battery gets below 50F. I'm not sure if being near the ocean keeps you a little warmer or not but here in northern Ohio winter worst case range with the 23kWh battery is about 40 miles. If you tried cranking the heat I'd imagine it could get as low as 35 miles especially with lots of stop and go traffic. 48mi is the worst I've personally experienced but I use the heat sparingly.

Yeah it really depends on how long you're sitting stopped at a light with the heat blasting. Doing that just burns up the battery (hence the battery run down test using the heater).

Is the “status” on the dashboard next to the GOM related to the GOM?

I would guess it is (no pun intended), but not sure. The GOM is telling me that I have over 80 miles, but the status will say -4. I am driving VERY conservatively, you could even say gingerly. 100% around town. Never on the highway. Very occasionally up to 45mph but usually <25mph. I am that guy in front of you that takes off like a snail on heroin from a light.

Anybody have a clue as to why I would be getting these disheartening statuses?

I’ve had a SSN issue recently and just got it back from the dealership this morning. Of course they could not duplicate and nothing is fixed. I just posted the before and after dealership experience over in the technical board here.

Please help!!!

The status is totally dependent on GOM. It just shows the difference between GOM milage between start of your trip and current GOM milage + km driven. So basically it's an indicator of how good GOM was at predicting your milage.

About the "Status" read the blog post I posted.

In short: When you start the car it records the GOM range right then and as you drive it shows the status indicator as the difference between the "fixed GOM" value and the current GOM value where the "fixed GOM" value decreases mile per mile driven and the current GOM value is what is displayed.
