No, it doesn't account for tire pressure. If you see any kind of smallish variation like this, like 5-10 miles, it it just the car's assessment of the amount of energy in the battery getting a little fuzzy. There have been many dozens of threads of people freaking out when they see it a few miles lower than it used to read.

I wasn't too worried about the drop, just curious about how the estimated miles worked.

yes, totally agree on all points. And to add for OP, there are just tooooooooo many other variances that can also account for minor mileage differences. Wind speed changes during those same trips, acceleration of driving changes, weather, and on and on.
