i have been charging up my MINI at about 50% remaining and have been displaying 89 to 93 mi range on the Guessometer after a full charge. I have long suspected actual range Is better than that. I had an 11 mile run yesterday and the GOM read 43 mi. when I left. Upon return, it read 36 mi. - 22 actual miles with the GOM using only 7 miles. After I charged up, the GOM read 113, the highest ever. That would put my real world range at about 130 mi., assuming the same conditions.

Was temperature a factor?
In mild fall weather, my highest charge shows ~114 mi on the GOM. In the winter I'm lucky to see 101. Typical remaining at charge is 50-75% due to my daily commute.
I do notice that charging speed also seems to affect the GOM reading. Slower, OEM granny cable charge at 10 Amps yiedls 120 mi on the GOM in decent weather. My aftermarket granny cable rated at 16 Amps yields between 96 and 115 mi depending on temperature. It's hard to know what factors the GOM uses and how it weighs them.

We had a pretty mild summer in Southern AZ, compared to the extreme years, but now daytime temps are in the 60-75 with nights in the 30-45 range. I'm not using the fan, AC, etc. as much so that may be a factor too. It remains a mystery....
