Hi, folks. We picked up our brown Sig Model S last Friday. Already have given at least two dozen test drives, participated in an Auto Show, and went over to Nevada to see my Mom and brother. We live in Napa Valley, and I have concerns about driving over Donner Pass on the way to Reno. We go from about 600' elevation in Sacramento area, up to 7200' elevation at the pass, then back down to Reno at 4400' elevation in about 120 miles. Then I drove 165 miles out to Fallon, visited, and came back to Reno. The Grand Sierra Resort has an RV park and charged me $10 to charge each night. By the way, they were hosting a Harley get together of at least 500 Harleys, bikers everywhere, RVers with trailers and bikers cruising everywhere, leather, tatoos, biker "broads" (whatever that is), dogs, etc. They were also hosting the Pacific States Oil Companies (yeah, like Chevron, Valero, Tesoro, etc.) I feared for my car. Not to go into too much detail, we had a wonderful trip. Lots of oldies on the flash drive, beautiful California weather up to the Nevada state line (the trees stop growing at the border, I kid you not). Set the car at 60 mph cruise, and had the Climate Control on all the time. Driving barefoot, I could not get it near as smooth as cruise does, with LOW regen. As long as the car will slow to cruise setting downhill, you're not getting anything by having standard cruise, and standard is much more abrupt. When I drove without cruise, my wife said the energy meter looked like the TSLA stock, peaks and valleys. Ha! Going up the hill (CA term for mountain) from Rocklin (Stafford Ranch 70 amp HPC) to Donner Pass, the car used 200 miles of projected range, or 2/3 of the pack. But it gained back 1/3, or 100 miles coming down the 40 miles into Reno. After my visiting, leaving Reno, I could have driven all the way home (225 miles) on one charge, including the drive over the pass. Bottom line: 600 mile trip, 575 miles rated range, or less than two full charges. We topped off several times, mainly because we could, partly for new car range anxiety (it's gone now), took it easy, and had a great time. Exceeded Expectations! What a great car!
