My capacity went up?

after doing the recall i did the formula to check capacity. when i bought the car i was in the mid 16's at half and then almost empty. i am at 17.5 with 25 miles to go. when it gets close to empty i will check again. did the update actually bring my range up?

Re: Recall notice concerning range estimation

why are they replacing the battery on the bolt if they can just update the module. also,i did the formula for capacity and im at 17.4 at 35% usage. i will see what it is when it gets closer to 80% usage. that seems higher than when i did it when i first bought the car.

Did the recall today?

They updated the software for the module. Should I expect any differences after doing this. Im charging it to full now so i will see over the next few days if there is any difference. i never had a problem with my car over or underestimating anything. wonder if it was just a few cars and they recall...
