Not sure I understand what you're saying, 7% capacity represents way more than just 3/4 mile.Tim Jodice wrote:... it is showing me about a 7% loss of capacity and at the end of my commute that works out to be about 3/4 of a mile ... Basically negligible.
That's right when you are looking at a full charged battery. I am referring to when I am at the end of my commute. 7% of what is remaining is only 240 Wh. I see 240-250 Wh/mi doing 50/50 city/highway. my commute is 10/90 city/highway I am usually seeing 280-290 Wh/mi spring summer and fall, Winter is 320 wh/mi. Obviously I'm not doing a good job describing this. I know there are many ways to measure power the way I described is the only way I have ever done it. Maybe the way i am doing it is not accurate measuring available power from an absolute value but there is a difference in what it displayed without a reduction in range. It is showing less power available and it is showing that it takes less power to do the same thing. Lastly your estimate of 1200wh is spot on, it used to show about 19.5Kwh now it shows no more than 18.1-.2WattsUp wrote:Not sure I understand what you're saying, 7% capacity represents way more than just 3/4 mile.Tim Jodice wrote:... it is showing me about a 7% loss of capacity and at the end of my commute that works out to be about 3/4 of a mile ...

7% of 18-19 kWh (typical capacity) is about 1200 Wh.
At 250 Wh/mi (typical), that would represent about 5 miles.
Yeah, on a full charge (of 19.5 kWh) you used to be able to drive about 5 miles further than you can now (on 18-ish kWh).Tim Jodice wrote:Lastly your estimate of 1200wh is spot on, it used to show about 19.5Kwh now it shows no more than 18.1-.2
