I've been working with Jason at A Better Route Planner. It seems he still has a small sample size, and my logs were able to get him some of the >60 mph driving data that he needed. I think their numbers are still off, but I think that's mostly due to the sample size (and the lack of information on 150 A DC fast charging).

For example, the road trip comparison they provide shows the Bolt EV requiring 12:20 hrs/min to travel 600 miles. Based on my experience, that trip should require just over 11 hours using 125 A charging, and about 10:40 using 150 A charging. By contrast, I did >600 miles in about 13 hours driving into a 10+ mph head wind, with some rain, a net 4,000' elevation increase, and half the charging at 100 A DCFC.

I just dumped another ~20 hours of logs on him. Hopefully, we can get enough data to get the route planner a bit more accurate.

Great job helping the community. I've mentioned that site in several threads related to Bolts. People can take a long route example > 600 miles and then pick different cars to model how they'd do. It will clarify the stops required at what length of time.
