I have tried various tools such as EVTripPlanner and while it will allow planning a trip through Superchargers, I can't seem to make it optimal. That is, It seems to be hitting every charger along the path. For instance, there are a few cases where it routes less than 100 miles before stopping again. The middle one could easily be skipped at no risk. There is another case where the route is extended to include another charger. This one could possibly be skipped, depending on how it's going that day.
I would like to start with a route and delete a stop and have the planner re-optimize with removed point ignored. Does this exist?
I really want to use the chargers and therefore my Tesla. However, it looks like the increase in distance is about 300 miles and that is making my ICE look better, at least concerning time, which shows a difference of about 4 hours.
I would like drive electric, but I would like to cut these differences in 1/2. I don't want to add an additional day of net travel to my families vacation.
