I need to set the mileage gauge (standard "miles" of range left) to more accurately reflect my driving pattern.
I am a 2014 P85+ owner and I've found that the "miles range" gauge is consistently off by 30% in the wrong direction for typical 75 MPH California highway driving. In other words, an indicated range of 245 "miles" equates to a real highway range of 170 miles for this type of efficient highway cruising in this car.
This issue is about having a useful range indicator. It isn't about how efficiently I'm driving the car, or how the interface is designed for simplicity, or that the indicated miles are not meant to reflect actual driving and that I can review the energy meter, etc.
I think the most straightforward way to deal with this is:
- enable the input of a user calibration of miles / kWh that is used to generate the indicated "miles" of range, perhaps using a different color from the Tesla calibration (does anyone really drive 55 MPH anymore?)
- enable an optional display of kWh and observed miles / kWh on the display
