My GOM gave me a chuckle today. I was heading home from the grocery store where I had popped the car on the local Volta charger for a few minutes. The GOM on startup showed a range of 39 miles. I traveled 5 miles on a back road, reasonably level, no wind, average speed about 40 MPH.

I pulled up at home and the GOM showed --- 40 miles.

Talk about a perpetual motion machine!

Ya, I now pretty much only look at it for a laugh.

Once I drove 10 miles at 80mph & it showed 40 miles left. Then I hit 15mph traffic for 10 more miles & it showed 80 miles left!

Most of the time for me though it pretty accurately shows about 1 mile per 1%, but I barely even check the % gauge anymore unless I'm making an extra-long drive.

The day I bought my 2016 there was a little bit of a downhill leaving town to go home. The GOM stayed on on 60 miles for a good 7 miles before it changed. That was a bit of a weird experience for my first ever EV. Now, like ETS, I mostly go by the % gauge as its just about 1 mile per 1%.
