Thank you. Is that 10 miles a percentage of the GOM reading or is it a fixed number irrespective of State of Charge?

It seems to be about 8%, but the percentage varies based on SOC or other factors.

The few times I have watched it, it was always 10 miles irrespective of SOC.

However it may vary depending upon how cold it is and the internal temperature set.

It is a percentage.

Automatic 10 miles drop on a full battery.
5 miles on a half battery.
1 mile on a nearly depleted battery.

HOWEVER... this is too optimistic.

In reality, in San Francisco “winter” heat uses 22 to 25% of the battery power / range.

In Chicago winter, it is more like 40 to 45%.
