So ass we know the gen 1 battery pack for 2014 has I believe a 10.7 usable size of the batter to get the 38 miles at least rated. So today in NY its been oh about 10 degrees all day. I was able to get 24miles out of what the monitor showed 11.3kwh. How can this be? Now my 4yr old volt has been averaging 10.3 for the last few seasons which is expected after being 4 years old so degradation is great. But how is it possible to get 11.3 on such a cold day? Note I did preheat the volt for one iteration of 10 minutes or cycle. Is it possible the 11.3kwh includes the extra amountt consumed while plugged in and preheating/pre conditioning?

As mentioned, ERDTT can screw with it. It's not very good at keeping the two separate like it is when there's a full switchover.
Especially if you have had a slow drive to start and ERDTT managed to generate power over and above 'full', but not quite to the 'overfull' point.
Top-up charge as part of preconditioning is plausible, I suppose, but usually that accounts for the net, or reverses the counter if you are using <3kW.
e.g. if you used 1.2 kWh in heat while plugged in but charged 1kWh in that time, the display should read 0.2 or so.
