Today was a trip down to see my parents in Melrose. The rain had the usual diminishing effect on range, so a 10 minute graze en route as we had started the journey at 70%. On the return leg in the dark, again a graze to give a bit of comfort.
Definately a wise choice,as the 32% charge we had at the time would have hit zero two miles from home. Looking at other people’s experiences, we would still have had another 5 or 6 miles before the turtle. However, I prefer prepared to anxious…..
I have an ambition not meet the turtle on the dashboard, signifying reduced power and speed due to a critically low battery. This limiting is primarily to prevent battery damage.
