These mi/kWh numbers are unbelievable, at least in my experience.
I just track the calculated kWh capacity of the pack, and not very often anymore. Not even once a month this time of year.
I'd bet money that the "range estimation correction," recall was done recently with some miles having been put on it afterwards, prior to your purchase. After the recall/update, your average efficiency on the dash instrument cluster screen will read 51.1 miles per kwh, which will obviously be reduced, unless you only use the Spark to drive down mountains, and then have it towed back up....
If your Spark EV can't serve this purpose for a decade, I'd be EXTREMELY shocked.Kermit wrote: my commute is not more than 18 miles round trip so I'm hoping it will last for a decade maybe two?
I screenshot my capacity when there is a displayed change. I spend at least ~1.5 hours (62 miles) roundtrip commuting M-F, and I almost always take a peak at it daily. Strange, after it always falling once or twice a week (always minimal except one noticed 0.8kwh drop), it has stopped at 14.06kwh, and has stayed there for nearly two months. I fast charge A LOT. If you glance at plugshare dcfc check ins, in Charlotte, NC you'll probably laugh (and I only check in if I plan on spending more than 10 min at the station, which isn't always).Kermit wrote: Do you guys keep track of your kWh or any other info?
It would be quite interesting to see the trend of your battery capacity measurements over the next few months as measured using TorquePro, . Both my 2014 and 2016 Spark EVs have shown a drop in battery capacity since the beginning of October of last year. The 2014 has dropped 0.6 kWh and the 2016 has dropped 0.9 kWh. Both cars only have about 17,500 miles on the ODO. My 2014 does not have the DCFC option but my 2016 does and I use DCFC a few times per month.Kermit wrote: ↑Wed Mar 20, 2019 7:46 amI'll be resetting the trip meter today to track my kWhs. I did my second charge to 100% last night (a month after the first time) and I got a GOM reading of 98 miles at 100%. I've been getting between 4.9-11kWh on my trips but mostly averaging 5-7kWh most days. I rarely jump on the interstate so my driving is usually less than 40 MPH. The battery capacity has not dropped in the first month of owning the car according to readings from Torque Pro. I have been leaving the car between 70-50% charge for my daily commute and charging by Level 1 charging at both 8 and 12 amps.
