    I don't think I ever remember my estimated range being around 50? I always thought it was over 100. But noticed it today. I still get a normal charge to around 187 ideal.

    The weather has been cool but not cold. I have been running the heat but not that much recently. Could that be doing it?

    Here is what wh/mil log and see how it suddenly jumps!?

    is there something up that I should have Tesla take a look or is that normal. I plan to do a longer-ish drive tomorrow about 120 round trip would should be easy in standard mode (but I am charging in range tonight just in case).

    Something seems wrong. Even racing i do not see 999 watts/mile for 15 solid miles. Are you sure you were not racing up Pikes peak?

    I think, and am almost sure, it was a problem with the firmware I had with the OVMS. We installed the updated one and all the problems went away. Mark looked at the firmware and it looked weird and perhaps corrupted somehow. The car has been fine since!
