    Screenshot_20180612-215154_Gallery.jpg I have been working with the service center and keep getting told they will look into it and come up with plans to do so, then I get forgot about. So someone tell me if they are getting the same results. I'm not worried about the distance I can go. But I am looking at the kW that I can use. I have a 2016 S90D. AP1, refreshed. As a test, i charged last night to 100% knowing I needed to drive a bit today to another city to look at a job, and I could test the limits of my battery. I was driving a lot of the day. No pre conditioning, over heat protection or any of that. I drove about 150 miles, then parked for a couple hours, then drove the rest of the miles. Here is the picture of my dash screen. I understand there is a buffer and have been told by a ranger that it was 3-5%. But shouldn't I be able to get more kW out of my battery? View attachment 309273

    Ok, not sure what happened with the picture. But it showing since last charge, again it was at 100%, was 204.3 miles, 64.3 kW, 314 wh/mi. And showing 3%left. I'll try the picture again. Screenshot_20180612-215154_Gallery.jpg

    I think there've been many answers in this forum already.

    I think that's why Tesla is refusing to reveal its kWh numbers for its Model 3 Short Range and Long Range batteries!

    There's an article:

    https://electrek.co/2016/12/14/tesla-battery-capacity/

    • Original 60 – ~61 kWh total capacity, ~58.5 kWh usable.
    • 85/P85/85D/P85D – ~81.5 kWh total capacity, ~77.5 kWh usable
    • 90D/P90D – ~85.8 kWh total capacity, 81.8 kWh usable
    • Original 70 – ~71.2 kWh total capacity, 68.8 kWh usable
    • 75/75D – 75 kWh total capacity, 72.6 kWh usable
    • Software limited 60/60D – 62.4 kWh usable
    • Software limited 70/70D – 65.9 kWh usable

    There's a graphic somewhere on the internet:

    That trip meter doesn't report usage 100% accuratetly... Hoe many kWhs does it say it takes to charge it back up after that test. (It is likely a more accurate nummber.)

    MP3Mike How do you check that? How many it takes to charge up?
