This is a major pet peeve of mine about the car. I want to know what I have left in a much greater detail. Having this zero "buffer" is fine and good for the model 3, when there is ample charging available and the masses will be using this new tech and media will be looking forward to reporting on stranded electric drivers, However, at least for me and I assume others, many trips I am trying to stretch the car to the max, its practicality lies in being able to travel great distances with minimal charging, as there is very little around. Tesla should unlock these miles, maybe an option, I want to know what I really have, I'm a big boy and can handle it. Maybe they could even tie the roadside assistance package to having zero enabled, to protect their interests?? Have the same experience as the OP, only about 74-75 kWh are available to me (less now that car at 16,000mi). I want to know how much more I have.
