I searched the forum and cannot find a discussion that matches this one so here goes:
I have had my Model S for just over two weeks now and it consistently loses 1 mile of range per hour when it is not plugged in. Considering that at full charge it is rated for 188 miles that is a 12.8% loss per day. At this rate of loss my car would be at zero miles in less than eight days. The owners manual says that the loss of range should be around 1% per day. When I called the Tesla service representative I was told that 1 mile per hour loss was normal and not to worry.
I am curious what losses other people are seeing. If there is already a discussion with this information I would appreciate being pointed to it.
