Re: Just Bought 2015 Spark EV- Did I get screwed?

As you will find searching that forum, the range is an estimated guess based on the last few driving/charge cycles. So it will take a few days for it to reflect your driving conditions. There are various ways to get an estimate of the current battery usable capacity. If you don't have a fancy ODB el...

Re: Questions and Data tracking

And if you use the energy dashboard % and kwh used, don't take these numbers if you have had partial recharge during that period.
