    I shot a short video explaining how you can calculate the HVAC consumption in an electric vehicle (not just Tesla or Model 3) and how to increase the range with the knowledge you gain.
    In the next video I will show you how our 2500km Norway trip went
    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Bumping my video as well. To increase the range
    A) enable HVAC
    B) disable AC
    C) set to manual and maybe 4-5(whatever you feel like, doesn't affect the range if set to manual and disabled AC, even if at 10)

    In a city bumper to bumper driving you can see a drop of about 20-40Wh/miles depending on things like the weather and how long you drive you can go from 330 with AC to 300 Wh/m
    In the highway it will be less, around half of the advantage.
    If you can live with manual and the temperature is ok, this will save you a lot of miles.
