    Are you fastidious maintaining your tyre pressures? I keep meaning to keep a close eye on mine, but it's one of those jobs that gets forgotten sometimes.

    Hi misterbleepy I have been running on 40psi for couple of months now. Currently getting 70 miles mixed driving consistently. I think it gives you about 5 miles or so extra per full charge. I reckon 200ish psi would get me into tesla s range or hospital.

    I haven't checked my tyre pressures since I increased them to 40 psi. If I wanted to be really anal about range I would put a reminder to check them in my calendar app.

    A key variable is that I have used the car most over the last few charges. Expect the figures to drop when my heavy-footed spouse gets her hands on the keys again! :)

    Annoyingly chargevision has failed to show a couple of charges, so I have guesstimated the kWh value from previous data (miles travelled & number of fuel gauge boxes used)

    This is a view only link to my 2015 spreadsheet

    ChargeVision didn't record my last charge either. So frustrating as I monitor the house consumption and like to know how much goes into the car's battery.

    Hmm, I'm not sure my battery is that healthy!

    Thats a low gom reading. How many miles have you done in the car?

    What do you guys think one would do with 50miles at 60mph on the m/way then 15miles on a B road? would it get to the destination?

    Maybe motorway at 55 then 15 miles b roads only just doable if your careful in summer months. Would be very close even then. I would attempt it but only because I know the cars capabilities over one year of ownership and even then certainly would not do it on a regular basis.

    If no in rush I've been doing 35-50mph. On B roads I've been starting slowly and even didn't let the gauge to reach ECO letters.

    On b roads where I live slipstreaming tractors gives the best range ;-)

    Slipstream a burgervan, there is nothing like it.

    You do realise there is basically no aerodynamic load at those sorts of speeds, so 'slipstreaming' doesn't really enter into it!

    'Wringing the neck' to get exceptional ranges is a mugs game - you are going to come unstuck sooner - or later! I reckon I could get 70 miles-to-a-charge in any season - but it's only possible by watching the distance-to-go 'V' range remaining - like a hawk.

    I like to start a trip with a range surplus of 20 miles. I'll let that drop to 10 miles with 30 miles to go - but I'm always pulling back on speed to ensure I achieve my destination!

    Letting the range surplus drop below 10 miles makes no sense, unless it's the last charge of the day!

    I know - but the reduction in speed helps economy (if not blood pressure - where I live a b road is about the same width as a tractor)

    If he would be all those miles on motorway behind the lorry, it's highly possible to that mileage. Did few times.
    Now I stopped to do it as I've got huge crack on my windscreen after lorry 'spit' a stone at me few weeks ago :D
