    I am noticing this after charging my car
    I got around 266 miles after a 90% charge when new
    After almost a year I now seem to get 261 to 263

    But what's weird is after I finish a home charge and unplug the charger, my miles seem to inch upward

    For example, today right when charging completed, I had 261

    After unplugging a few hours later, I see 264??

    I see this as well - my wife leaves early and unplugs the X, to get her car out - often it is charged to 231 miles (90%), but will be 233 or 234 a few hours later.
    I thought balancing only occurred above 93% according to those who know?
    Also, I never saw this before recently.

    Do you have range mode on? Sometimes, it displays the non-range mode number when charging completes, and then updates it to the range mode "on" number (which for me is 3 additional miles). I've seen this happen several times in my S 85. Of course, if you have range mode off, then I have no idea why.

    Temperature change can affect range as well, as the pack heats it might improve its range estimate.
