    Here are some stats for those who are interested in real life/accurate stats. We just did this drive from Anaheim/LA to Peninsula (Palo Alto area). Temps on I5 were in the 80s (night driving).. 7pm departure - 2am arrival.
    Car: Model X 90D
    2 Adults/2 kids
    Car not fully charged at the beginning of the trip.
    Chargers:
    Tejon ~9pm.. 1 stall occupied.
    Harris: ~11pm. 1 stall occupied.
    Gilroy: ~1pm. 0 stall occupied.
    Sunday night drive on Memorial Day Weekend.
    Autopilot: 95%+ of the miles on I5 (including the climb and descent through Grapevine) and on 101 between Gilroy and Peninsula. Mostly Cruise Control without Autosteer on 152.

    Hmm. I am surprised that you consumed so much energy between Tejon SC and Harris SC. It's pretty flat, you were only going 71 mph and the temp was not hot. I assume there was not much of a wind?

    i pushed it higher than 71mph for a longer stretch then slowed down.. higher speed - by far the biggest impact on energy.
    it was little windy but nothing serious.

    Nice. I did a similar drive over the weekend. I didn't cap my speed so was driving at 80-85 mph on the I-5. On my last leg from Harris to Home (146.5 miles), I was using 450 Wh/mi and it consumed 86% of my fully charged battery. I have a P90D on a 22".

    Do you have 20 or 22 inch rims?

    Just curious...what did you use to calculate all that? Was it a program, the car, or did you do it by hand?

    I took screenshots of the instrument dash at every interval and then calculated speed manually in excel.
