I was driving back home from Cincinnati this weekend and as we came up I-75 navigation had us stopping at Dayton. The problem is Dayton is 8 miles west of I-75 so that's at least 15 minutes out of our way. But the next super charger would get us there with only 5% battery which is cutting it to close for me. But thanks to all the people on this forum I had a really good understanding already on how to handle the situation and felt comfortable with my decision to press on and just go slower. Instead of stopping at Dayton I slowed down to 60 MPH until the navigation showed I would arrive with 10% at which point I started going 70 MPH and ultimately 75 MPH and arrived with 9% charge on the battery.

This forum is a great help to me and I thank everyone who contributes.
