Re: Questions and Data tracking

I had my GOM range down to 11 miles with the last bar flashing yellowish/orange for the first time by forgetting to plug in several times this week.
When I got home I used Torque pro to read the individual cell voltages and they were at 3.50 volts and it was showing 10% battery charge left.

With the cells at 3.50 Volts the discharge is at about 95%. So the upper and lower end buffer on what is usable in the battery is only about 3% on both ends from my measurements. These voltages are the same as our Gen 2 Volt.

I wanted to add that when my car got low enough to ask if I wanted to turn the radio off that it did not cool the battery even though it was hot outside and has been cooling when properly charged every day.

Data from this month's 100% charge (September.)
Previous Charge to 100% was 92 miles. This charge to 100% and the GOM is at 99 miles.
Previous Charge to 100% kWh was 16.5666676. This charge to 100% and the kWh remained at 16.5666676 kWh (odometer is at 15,279). The average was 5.4 mi/kWh this past month over 451.5 miles.
Temperatures have been in the upper 90's with car reading over 100F most days.
I was seeing as high as 7+mi/kWh in the mornings when the car didn't need battery cooling and as low as 3.1mi./kWh when the car was hot from sitting in the sun all day.

Fuel is $2.29/ gallon here now and electricity is $0.074 per kWh so I am getting about 125.3 miles out of what it costs for a gallon of gas right now (after assuming 75% efficiency of the electricity actually into the battery.)

181.98 MPGe (1 Gallon of Gas = 33.7kWh)
