Sunday 19th May. Palm Desert to Corning, CA. Encountered significant headwinds (20 to 40 mph) which decreased range by about 10-15% (e.g. from Harris Ranch charged to 251 and made it to Folsom by 20 miles rated range remaining with speed at 55 mph. Drafted trucks and used cruise control but it was close. Range anxiety exists. Using a 78% of rated range to get to your destination allowing for 7.5 miles for 1000 feet of elevation seems from this trip so far to be ok, but not if you encounter significant headwinds. Off to Seattle in the a.m. and will keep my log and report.
