Good point: The % gauge may retain more accuracy if you periodically charge until it stops, & drive until it's low. I rarely do either, so mine may be further off than others of the same age/mileage.if you only discharge to 20% or less for many months I could see how the calibration could get messed up.
I appreciate your input, but I ran my stock tires at 45psi from when I bought the car until I wore them out.
Also, since others aren't reporting significant range loss, I don't really think we should expect that, but others ARE reporting % gauges going significantly out of calibration. That makes it SEEM like there's range loss, but it vanishes when recalibrated. The reports I've seen say it happens so suddenly that it's unlikely to be a battery issue, since they rarely die that fast. However, imagine if that happened to someone & they freaked out & quickly sold it to Warrior here, instead of just recalibrating the gauge.
ga2500ev is absolutely right AT HIWAY SPEEDS, in which case about the only thing you can do besides using cruise & keeping everything off is maybe getting the rear diffuser & front belly-pan.
HOWEVER, the car shows an average speed of only 19mph*. Mine shows average 21 to 22 & I get about 1%/mi at those average speeds. So I still think the % gauge could use calibration.
*I wonder if this is another clue: Is the car left "idling" for long periods?
its going for 45 min already and still onThe (probably mis-calibrated) GAUGEs show that usage. If my gas gauge is broken, it doesn't mean I'm getting zero or infinity mpg.
Try to be patient. The further off your gauge is, the longer it will take to discharge, & the more range you're likely to regain.its going for 45 min already and still on
Its till going and it’s more than an hour!Try to be patient. The further off your gauge is, the longer it will take to discharge, & the more range you're likely to regain.
For example, my OBD shows I'd have about 8% remaining after my inaccurate gauge hits 0, so it wouldn't take all that long to fully discharge, but I'd only gain about 8%.
If your gauge is off by 30%, it will take a LONG time, & you'll likely gain a lot of range, but ONLY if you take it all the way until it shuts itself off.
