    I don't think there are many of us, but I drive 1,000 miles a week. I passed the 200,000 mileage point, so I thought I would share info on my small worn-out 60 battery.

    My FULL charge is 170:

    My 80% charge is 151:

    80Charge.jpg

    I drive fast, but my average usage is 352 Watt Hours/mile:

    352Wh.jpg

    I charge for free at my house because of Solar, using 51,727/kWh:

    and at my office because of Solar, using 21,465/kWh:

    OfficeMeter.jpg

    Which means when you take out the free Supercharging I have done, I have used 73,192/kWh to drive 200,000 miles. If I did NOT have Solar, it would have cost me $5,050.25 to drive 200,000 miles (Reliant's rate is $0.069/kWh in Dallas, TX.) That is $0.025/mile. I love it!

    The one negative? My remaining mileage is WRONG! If I hit 31 miles left on the Dash, the car will stop. Out of juice.

    That is a good question, I have to try to find 4 year old pictures. I think it was full at 208.

    I've heard of getting a replacement battery on warranty from an issue like this. Tesloop had it and Fred wrote about it in elektric. should schedule an appt.

    That's impressive! Any idea how many full charges you have done over the years?

    I’m under the impression that only the 85 kWh cars from this era had the 8 year/unlimited mileage warranty.

    I think the 60s came with a 125k mile warranty on the battery.

    So this means your true 100% rated range is 139 miles down from 208 when new?

    Correct. I only stay at SC's long enough to reach the next one, which is between 50-80 minutes. Don't EVER get a small battery if you drive distance. A larger battery lets you charge at a higher Wattage, higher Amperage, and shorter amount of time. I was the test-case to prove this. I will always get 90 or above batteries from now on.

    Interesting and informative data. Thanks for that.

    That's a ton of driving -- with no AP either. If you don't mind me asking, what has you on the road that much?

    Shameless Plug time: I own Apex Express, Inc. which is a Same-Day / Time-Critical Delivery Service. UPS & FedEx are amazing...at tomorrow deliveries. We do everything that does NOT fit their system. Courier / Trucking / & Air Freight that needs to be delivered NOW! Missed deliveries, medicine, broken parts & emergencies are our forte. Dispatch gets in trouble a lot - hence the need for my driving.

    So straight power from the home not including free supercharging or solar would cost you some $5K for 200K miles? In “fuel”. That’s insane. In a good way.

    Your electricity rate is amazing too. Mine is .119/kWh flat rate 24 hours.

    Also can you provide data on out of warranty costs? So in the 150K miles out of warranty, what have been your total costs, if any? Super curious to know.

    Just to do a comparision - what would be your fuel costs if you were driving an equivalent ICE that gave 25 mpg. ?

    So when you do your IRS business expense, can you use miles to expense the avg fuel cost? :)

    Also have you run out of energy? I always thought it would just lie to you and count you miles down faster or show a lower range.

    My D- back of the napkin math says 22k, $2.75 per gallon rate.

    And if you had free nights like here with TXU - all of that would be savings.

    I would be curious to know how much mileage you can get on your tires?
    And what kind of tires you use?

    - I just passed 350k miles, with an ICE and I average 80k miles for each set.
