    Taking a road trip and set it to charge full. It turned off at 99%. 308 miles. Is this normal that it doesn’t go to 100%. It’s the first time I’ve set it to charge to full.

    Yes that is normal. It will not always make it to 100% when it says charging complete. I assume it has something to do with pack balancing.

    Mine will sometimes stop at 98 or 99%, if I let it sit for an hour or so and then start charging again it will usually charge for a short while and then jump to 100%. When it jumps, both the percentage and the rated range will suddenly pop up to the correct values. I'm thinking it takes some settling and recalculation time.

    My last range charge stopped at 98% (265RM) and after letting it sit for 45 minutes and then restarting charging it popped to 100% (270RM) after a few minutes.

    99% hmmmm.

    Maybe Tesla should remove the percentage number and substitute it with a phrase like:

    Good Enough.
    I'm stuffed.
    All done
    I'll tell you watt..No more room for electrons
    I'll get you there....don't worry.
    I couldn't eat another byte.
    Boy...glad I got rid of all that Gas....lets go.
