No, the EPA rating is 265 miles.
Isn't 265 'rated' whereby I have mine set to display 'ideal' range?
Must be! Mystery solved. I never hit ideal conditions and completely forgot about that setting
Some good news in today's Virginia PilotOnline.

FYI. I used the HPWC provided by Mythics (1427 N Great Neck Rd, Virginia Beach, VA, 23454) a few Saturday's ago. It provides a full 80 amps but after 2 hours it cut off...do not know if it was the heat (it was about 85 degrees outside and in the sun) or if the guy has it on a timer.
Happy to see some progress being made in the area. I took advantage of the new level 2 chargers at City Center in Newport News last weekend. Great location and free.
Yeah, City Center has (2) well marked L2 free stations in each of their (3) public parking garages with plenty of dining and boutique shopping. And, as always, any of y'all (except CatB, of course) can grab some electrons from my HPWC (exit 242) if you get caught "short" pretty much anytime.
Lol, ok, so yeah when I visited my brother (just moved to Yorktown) in May, I couldn't get his 110v plugs to charge, so I paid a visit to the friendly Nissan dealer and didn't call you all up, but that's because I was already down the road past Williamsburg.
And awesome that NNS has public chargers now! Hope they are on plugshare so I can find them
Stopped by City Center last thurs and sought out security along with the facilities head-honcho at which time we had a pleasant conversation about ICEing. They made it clear that they will "cite" and enforce all parking restrictions. I also let them know that they will see me and others more often because of the City Center's support for EV's. The Supervisor then stated he would pass this welcome business news to his boss. In conclusion, we had a nice time discussing the S along with pic taking.
I'll be taking my 3rd annual Model S February trip to Virginia Beach again in February. This time we plan to stay at the City Center Marriott in Newport News and take advantage of their Level 2 chargers. Still, I would love to see that gray "coming soon" dot on the Supercharger map in the area turn red before then! Anyone dig up any intel on possible locations for the new Supercharger in the Tidewater area?
I'm interested too, I'll *probably* be headed to Norfolk next month as well. Although Salisbury, MD and L1 charging should be sufficient for me.
I am sure you have seen the (2) HPWCs at the beach. Let me know if you'd like to borrow any of my adapters or 100' extension cords that'll charge from just about any outlet known.
Happy to close out this thread thanks to the new Norfolk supercharger! Looking forward to using it next week on our annual trek to Nags Head :biggrin:
Yup, well done Tesla. I'll be in Norfolk towards the end of the week...
It's was suppose to open yesterday and there was a death so the opening was delayed.
Yeah, technically it was open earlier this week but the accident has caused it to be shut down. Guess I'll have to lug my CHAdeMo adapter with me to the beach after all.
This looks promising:
