I would think almost everyone gets 3-4. Can you add a significant digit?I don't drive for efficiency but I am wondering how many miles the best of us get? Thanks!
btw I get 3 to 4 miles per kWh.
Has anyone figured out the reason for the inaccuracy?Are you getting your lifetime numbers from the app? If so, ignore them. They've never been accurate in my Spark EV.
I didn't check he math, but it looks like you took miles per kilowatt hour and divided money unit (dollars?) per kilowatt hour and ended up with miles per gallon rather than miles per dollar. You need to convert dollars to gallons.Is this oversimplified? 4 mi/kWh divided by .112 (my kWh cost) = 35.7. Would that equate to 35.7 mpg?
There is no such data reset option, either in the onstar app or the mychevrolet app. There's a trip meter in the car, but resetting it would discard real data along with the bogus data. If it is extra kWh from initial charges as you and I suspect, it's easier just to subtract them from the lifetime totals.Do a data reset to get rid of it.

Thanks for the input. I am going to look at it the 2nd grade way, as math was obviously never my strongest area. Using 4 miles per kwh, it will take 25 kwh to go 100 miles. My cost per kwh is $0.112. 25 kwh x $0.112 = $2.80. It will cost $2.80 for me to go 100 miles. Now if Sam has 5 apples and gives 3 to....I didn't check he math, but it looks like you took miles per kilowatt hour and divided money unit (dollars?) per kilowatt hour and ended up with miles per gallon rather than miles per dollar.

Is the battery freezing really a concern? And due to the large thermal capacity of the battery, it wouldn't take much to keep it warm overnight, especially if it got any sun during the day. This talks about the thermal management system not running when the car isn't plugged in:There's a big chunk of anomalous data associated with the initial charge and manufacturing. Do a data reset to get rid of it. Mine showed 3 miles on the odometer at delivery but well over 65 kwHrs of consumption. If they charged it completely at the factory and then let it sit for 6 weeks on a rail siding in Ohio (like mine) - the battery was fully drained keeping itself from freezing....and then charged again at delivery. Well over 100 kWhrs of usage in 3 miles.
