    Doing a lot of driving today so just did a 100% charge, first time. I guess it confirms the 240 mile rated range on 70D. Looking forward to the Tesla grin all day ;-)

    That's exactly what I get with my bit over 2 year old S85 now (I assume due to battery degradation).

    Yeah it topped out at 243, 100% charge. That is odd for you though I'd say, are you sure its that for yours at 100%? The 70 is 82% the size of the 85, so seems like you would get 18% more, or 285-286 Range Miles at 100%. Can't be that much degradation right, 18% in two years?

    Ideal vs rated range I'm sure. I suspect the 70 is set to ideal

    The 70D is rated for 240 miles. I've never charged to 100%, but 242 rated seems reasonable. I've also never looked at what the ideal numbers give me.

    Just checked my car, 153RM/191 ideal miles @ 64%. So 100% charge ideal miles is ~300?

    Best I got - rated, not ideal is 138. Not bad at all.

    I'm pretty sure it is actual degradation I'm seeing on my S85. I've had it for a bit over 2 years and it currently has a bit over 51,000 miles. I've tried all the tricks: Charge to 100% to "balance" the pack, run it down low and charge back up a few times to "re-calibrate" the mileage estimator etc. but nothing is bringing back any more miles for me. I see around 215 Rated Miles @90% and around 242 @100%. I did get exactly 265 miles @100% when the car was new.

    One of the reasons I opted for the 85 over the 60 at the time was in recognition that some degradation would occur over time.

    Plus with all the different versions of FW we've had since D day two years ago in guessing we probably have more than the car thinks we do. I've got just a bit over 50k on my girl. 232 at 90% and 258 at 100%. Was 269 the day I brought her home.

    I did mean the best rated range with full charge was 238.

    [1 - (242/265)]x100% = 8.7% degradation over 2 years? thats a pretty hefty amount
