I have a Tesla long range model, up to 325 miles. I am new to owning a Tesla. I noticed yesterday I drove about 70 miles but the car showed closer to 100 miles driven based on the battery. Today, I set range mode to "on" and did some tests. Driving about 17 miles, the car showed that I had driven 20 miles (based on the green battery meter). My average watts per mile was about 350-380 driving around town and a local two lane highway / road.
Now for my question, realistically, if I "fill" the car to 300 miles, driving normally in comfort mode, how many miles will I really be able to drive both with range mode on and with range mode off. This is especially important for long trip planning, for instance, from Monterey to San Francisco and back.
I also want to verify that what I am seeing is "normal". Any insight would be appreciated, thank you.
