    Very NEW - first e-vehicle. Has the 72 amp charger. Bought the X with a few miles on it as a demo but registered new!

    always plot all destinations in the car's navi and somewhere in the options is an option for give round trip range - turn that on as well. As you drive the car more, it computes that % range on arrival and back with actually very good accuracy - on mine it's within 2-4% usually. Seat heater and how fast you drive will affect (range mode and chill mode are your friends). If getting tight can also switch off the A/C which runs year round in the ventilation settings (even runs with heat to prevent condensation but that can save you power as well).

    So punch in the round trip destination and see what the car is giving as final arrival percentage on round trip - I like that number to be 10-15% closer to 15%...and charge up before leaving to 100%

    There's also a report that the battery gauge had 40 miles left. Left for parking for 1 hour in 15F. There was only 0 miles left after that.

    i've done 8 miles and at that time my car shut off hvac, and reduced power big time. i got to 55mph max speed and got off the exit ramp and could barely creep forward but managed to get up to around 30mph to go the last 1/4 mile to the charger where the car trickle charged for about 10 minutes before it properly started taking a full DC charge.

    this was 186 miles straight at 79 mph until the last 10 miles which were 55-60mph. I ddi the same exact trip at a later date at only 70-75mph and arrived at the supercharger with 12 miles of range left, speed is a huge factor...!

    i've gone to 0% like 4-6 times in various tesla's and haven't been stranded yet, i like living on the edge...but mostly hate waiting for the top up charge that's why i cut it close. I now draft behind semi's and go like 65 if i know i have to make up 20-30 miles of range. :D

    No advice, but I cannot wait until questions like this disappear. I hope the killing of the 100 KW S and X means that these cars will be getting larger battery options soon. Rivian says next year they are going to have 180 KW pack ( with 400 mile range) as an option in their truck and SUV. Hopefully we will see 130+ KW battery Tesla model X and S soon.
