    Traveled up to Lake Tahoe over the 4th and the chart below is the "tale of the tape."

    As you can see, no problem. I stopped at Folsom for a top-off on the way up, but came straight through on the way back. Good charging option in Tahoe City. Did 65-70 mph both directions. And it was 95+ so had A/C going full blast. No problem.

    Did you use the tahoe city public utility district charger and if so is it a J1772.

    Yes and yes. They were most accommodating. Suggested calling ahead if you want to use during business hours. They will "cone" the space so you won't get ICE'ed. Weekends, no sweat. It is 24/7 and free. They told me that they have security cameras so evening use shouldn't be a problem.

    Great data, but I'm afraid you have a formula error on the Folsom to Tahoe City line: should be 134%
