    After 6K miles, I am showing 274/238. Charge was completed about two hours before completion of a "standard" charge.

    We leave it in ideal since that's how the Roadster works so I only have that number but we are just shy of 6k miles and we get 275 ideal. That's after balancing and before any vampire load - about 30 mins after charge complete.

    thank you! My decrease seems to be associated with 4.4 sw... or it is in my head :). I am going to turn off the charge timer to see if this makes a difference.

    I've had my car for almost a month and without fail a standard charge results in 239 miles projected range at the start of each day.

    I always get 242 at the end of a charge (which goes down over time naturally). Recently I've begun letting my car go a day or two between charges, and when I did a full (standard) charge this morning, it hit 244 (this is rated)

    I usually start with 278 ideal miles; occasionally 279.

    Weird. I got my car last week. It's been at 237-238 at 90% charge and I just did a 100% charge. I got 274 as well.

    I get about the same as about 238-242 and almost always 272 on range. Does this really tell us anything I figured you would want to see the actual charge and not the mileage? I get the impression not all batteries are created equal.

    Right at the end of a standard charge I get 242 rated. It will drop to 239 after a while before it tops back up to 242. 2500 miles.

    232 at 3500 miles, with 4.5. Was at 242 before 4.4, 236 with 4.4. Not sure what's going on.

    Update:

    As explained here: showthread.php

    Looks like a variation in "standard charge" level from 4.4 to 4.5.
