Just got an 08 roadster. It'll be a week or so before I get it on the road, so I can't really cycle it up and down yet (only up, by charging it.) It hadn't been charged in a long while, but was not totally dead. Using the 110 mobile connector (that's all I have right now,) it took a charge in standard mode, only to 139, then to 148 ideal miles, then in the range charge mode, to 172 ideal miles. From everything I've read, that's still very low. Scares me. But here's a few things I don't understand; the battery icon appears 7/8 full, and the range showed on the odometer display shows only 98 miles of standard mode range. I know the car figures in the way it was driven the last 40 miles (previous owner,) but that drastic of a difference between the 172 and 98? With use and charging, should these ranges come around? Anything I should do in the meantime other than just leaving it plugged in?
