I am trying to extrapolate the battery capacity from mileage since last charged. The approach I took was to charge till 90%, and drive until 40% of battery, and look at the "mileage since last charged" to see how much power been consumed.
I did the test multiple times and got result between 60-65 kWh constantly for my long range Model 3. From the spec I was expecting 75kwh.
I am wondering if it is possible that my long range model 3 somehow is set to mid-range by software (which has 66kwh batter)? Is such thing even possible? Or does anyone have any other explanation?
