I'm not a new owner. I have 15,000 miles on my car. Several < 600 mile road trips. I am not worried about my trip and charging, there are plenty of superchargers, except between Mount Vernon, IL and Bowling Green, KY. abetterroutplanner estimates 85% battery usage. Add a bit of headwind and/or rain and that 15% cushion disappears. I'm looking for some advice from our forum members who do a lot of highway driving. Should I start out 5 mph below the speed limit the first 50 miles? I can route through Kuttawa, KY supercharger, but that adds 30 minutes of driving. I have no problem arriving with 5%. I once had a 7% arrival charge for the last 130 miles of one road trip.
