Coast down the hill in B0 (and beyond if possible) so that you keep the full charge for the rest of the journey. :idea:

That is questionable, as he started with a full battery. More likely, he had a few free (or near free) kms going down hill that didn't impact his remaining range. Also, the low energy consumption during his morning commute makes that car overestimate the distance that can be travelled with the remaining charge. So, in the afternoon, when traveling the other direction, EV range is likely to go down faster than than the odometer is going up.

Several of us, including me, have seen 80 or 90 km remaining EV range (even on partially charged batteries) after coming down mountain roads in the French alps. To be honest, my previous Diesel (an Outlander too) once showed a remaining range of 1999 km (before switching to ----, as the display could not handle numbers above 1999). This was on half a tank of Diesel while towing my caravan :lol: And that car obviously has no regen whatsoever.

Yeah the range thing is very elastic depending on how it's driven etc.

Guess-O-Meter(tm)

When you're in a sadistic mood, take a short drive with your inner teen (drive it like you stole it), cycle power, then pretend you're 'driving Miss Daisy' - you can almost smell the guess-o-meter's processor cursing at you. :lol:

:D yep I'm sure that will cause it trouble..

My last ~1.5kms is up a hill (200m change in altitude) so quite steep this seems to confuse it somewhat!

Today started at 37kms 'range' got to work with 22 left ( 23km trip).
It'll probably be down to 18 when I get in for some reason..

Also now have access to the wifi and the app installed and running, ac is scheduled to come on at 16:00 lol its 34c degrees here today

Flatish terrain is useful. The guess-o-meter said I had 27 miles (44 km) of range when I left with a full battery this afternoon. 25 miles (41 km) later I was back home with 6 miles (9 km) remaining. Most of the drive was on divided highway at up to 70 MPH (115 kph), though most was slower due to afternoon rush-hour traffic. (70°F/21°C)

I believe there are 2 different shots of the Cell voltages.
Yes, I missed that. But, although both cell diagrams highlight cell 19 as the 'weakest' cell, the overview screen says 28 is the cell with the lowest voltage. Could it be a coincidence after all?

Ok so running it mostly on ev for the last few weeks here is the current cell voltages

Looks like that cell is actually improving with the battery conditioning? Gone from. 0.052v under to 0.042..?
