So today I decided to see how low I could take the Bolt on charge. I started out this morning with 28% SOC on the My Chevrolet app with 80 miles of range left.
I had driven 175 miles at that point starting out with 87% charge.
I ended with 2% SOC on the my Chevrolet app and 6.8 miles of remaining range. The GOM started reading low at 16 miles of range remaining, so I checked with the My Chevrolet app and it was still indicating SOC at 4%.
Reduced power came on at around 3% SOC.
The Car shows I went a total of 248 miles on 54.6kWh, including 7% climate control use. Again Starting SOC was 87%.
I am now checking to see how long it will take to charge from 2% to 100% on my Chargepoint Home Flex level 2 charger at 7.54kW charging rate. The my Chevrolet app says 10 hours.

So that 67.67 kWh is from the wall? 7.6 kW in, is 7.2 kW out to the battery, or 94.7% efficient onboard charger. A bit of what leaves the onboard charge is lost to internal impedance in the battery too. So your new battery is about 64 kWh...just like the LG label says.

That’s how my math works out too.
In fact I checked it also at 87%
here is what it showed then. 2% to 87%

At current gas prices ($4/gal), that pencils out to nearly 150 mi/gal.

$4.34 here..
