How can you have used 26 kWh? Max usage is around 14.x kWh from one charge, right?
I drove yesterday to my astronomy observing site located 30 miles from home, the highway is not good for EVs, it has numerous small hills that suck your electrons (typical of the Mississippi highways), i got back home at 32F with one mile left on the guessometer for a total of 59.4 miles and 14.0 Kwh

Let if charge overnight, but I charge on L1 (12 amp) so when took the car to church, Lowe's, lunch and finally to run some errands i found I needed 24 more miles to get to a hundred with 46 miles on the guess-ometer, drove the car to the furthest car wash and drove back on the highway (longest run)

by 3:00pm I was at 101 miles and counting.

Just over 100 miles is my best as well with my 2013.

If I were to recharge, overnight (to full charge) with 1 mile left on the GOM, my stats would reset. I think the issue is when you let it charge overnight, you didn't get to a "full charge" by the time you unplugged and drove again, correct? That would make sense... If that's the case, I guess it's just a different game to play with stats.

Once I achieved 110 miles in one day on voltstats. Went out in the morning, recharged, then went out again in the evening.

Huh, I wonder who holds the record for the most KWH displayed on the screen. This would require days of charging and pulling the plug before the battery is full. Does this field go to 3 digits? Ari_c, are you up for the challenge? The gauntlet has been thrown down!!!

I have found that the GOM does not directly reflect your actual mileage. If you want to know what your REAL mileage is, you have to record the ODOMETER miles start and finish. When results are compared to the GOM, you can be either in the pos or Neg of actual miles driven (ODOMETR).

I had it up around 70kw on a 2013 when it was very cold and I didn't have enough time on the charger.

Just as a stunt I decided to see how many EV miles I could get in a day using L1 charging, I drove 165.17 EV miles... much more pleasant than trying the same stunt on L2 charging because you get much more charging time, so you have long breaks between driving times :)
