Range Anxiety-How close have you gotten to 0%/0 miles?

Range Anxiety-How close have you gotten to 0%/0 miles?

I make a regular drive out to the coast from Seattle that is 139 miles. I usually make sure I've got 200 miles or more left on the battery before taking off. By the time I make it there, I can have anywhere from 30 to 50 miles left on the battery, depending on time of day and outside temperature.

Today I left with only 170 miles on the battery and had 17 miles left on the battery when I made it to the destination and plugged it in. My range anxiety was kicking in, and I was really hoping the battery readout was right so I didn't need a tow.

What is the lowest you've allowed your battery get to while out and about?

Based on this thread it appears that Tesla is just like every other car manufacturer in regards to what "Empty" means. How full is the battery at 0%? Clearly 0% does not mean that you are out of juice. I wonder how big the buffer is. Someone needs to drive until the car quits and let us know. Have fun with that.
