Battery Efficiency Question?

Please see the attached pic, I am not really that well versed in battery technology and wanted to check with the group here on the battery efficiency for my car.

I just went to 800+ miles trip, driving almost at 65-70 mph range and minimal auto-pilot.

I am going to visit SC next week and wanted to check if I need to bring this up or not?

Thanks in advance.

is that a round trip? if not, you need to take into account total elevation gain/loss. HVAC use is also a big factor. That said, the efficiency number looks right for highway speeds.

What were you questioning? Was the efficiency lower (worse) than anticipated? I would not go to the SeC to tell them your car is too efficient ;)

The title is a little confusing as it says 'battery efficiency'. The energy consumption is more driving efficiency. I don't have a Model 3 (yet) but from what I have seen 240 Wh/mle is a very reasonable consumption. Comparing those numbers is always difficult because road, weather, speed, driving style, temperature, wheels/tires, ... all affect consumption.
