I have a 40kwh car and the sticker says: 36kwh/100 miles, full charge range is 139 miles (I assume this is EPA numbers).
On full charge my rated range is ~144miles, but it seems my average wh/mile is 327 (based on ~1000 miles so far).
Problem is that my estimated miles based on ~327 w/mile is much less than 139. I'm also hearing the averages others are getting on 60 and 85's are in the <300 range. I don't think I'm pushing the car that hard at all, so, I'm not sure what is showing a 10% diff in w/mile.
Are there any tests to see if I'm not using more energy per mile than I should? or can i get some other estimates of 40's out there now? What kind of numbers are you guys seeing for average w/mile?
