I've seen plenty of journalists testing the range of the car by driving at 55, with no aircon and scared to touch the accelerator, but I've yet to see a test where a blunt just drives the car as normal, maybe pushing the speed limit a bit, having a bit of fun with the acceleration at the lights and generally enjoying such a wonderful car. So I'm still in the dark as to what kind of range I'd expect for my long drives.
I regularly drive from Liverpool to London, a 225 one way trip 95% on the motorway, speed limit here in the UK is 70MPH. I do a return in a day sometimes, but realise that the S will need a full recharge should I want to do this. What I would like to know is has anyone done a long 230+ mile drive on motorways (or highways you'd call them) on a single charge without any compromise to their normal driving style?
