    never had the need to fully charge - why on earth would you do that regularly?

    The one time I did it before a trip I got 315 miles of estimated range.

    What's your avg Whr? That will determine a LOT.

    My guess is you are low 200's

    Does the Model 3 range estimator work different from the Model S one?

    (The Model S definitely doesn’t use avg Whr/mile in its range calculation).

    Sorry that is not correct, Model 3 is the same as S & X - your driving has no effect on the rated range.

    For daily use I charge to 70% and I still get home every night with >50% remaining. Haven’t fully charged yet but will be doing my first soon for a road trip.

    even for roadtrip, i never go above 90%, just because supercharging rate tapers off dramatically above 80%, so i'd drive normally and plan to arrive at supercharger with 10-20% just for 25-30mins to get to 80%.

    I have heard that even charging to 100% in Model 3 is not as bad for the battery as S and X because there is more inaccessible juice in the 3 compared to S and X. So while the car might read 100%, the actual SoC is ~90%. If Tesla did indeed set things up this way, this is really smart IMO. It removes the need for the customer to think about managing their battery for longevity. That said, keeping actual SoC lower than 90% is even better, but below 90%, there's rapidly diminishing returns. I think during the peak of summer when the weather is really hot, it still pays to keep the SoC lower.

    Two situations when it makes sense to charge to 100% when on a road trip (in addition to needing the miles to get to where you’re going):
    1. You’re eating while supercharging and the car is waiting for you to finish, rather than you waiting for the car to charge. It might as well charge up to 100%. Note I’m talking about most of the country where you’re lucky to see another Tesla at a supercharger, not southern California.
    2. When staying overnight at a hotel with destination charging, charge up to 100% in the morning, just before you leave. It will make your first supercharger stop shorter, or you might even be able to skip the first one.

    The key is your two scenarios are both exceptions, not rules....

    This would be fantastic, as the service center has already "fully" charged it 2-3 times since I took "delivery."

    I have yet to fully charge my car through 1,100 miles. Should I fully charge it once to check what it runs up to?

    I did it twice on longer trips and hit 316.

    I've changed twice to 100%, both times getting 297 miles I mostly charge to 70‰ and consistently get 218 miles which would imply 311 miles on a full charge. I'm hoping the 100% charge is "wrong".

    Doing my first 100% charge tonight and another tomorrow, about 5300 miles on the car now. I'll try to remember to check, but I use % instead of range for my display.
