You don't know me. So, please do not make assumptions. Because, when you assume, you make an ASS out of U and ME.Tony values consistency over accuracy. There are a group of folks that if you tell them the car gets 259 miles, they expect to both see 259 miles on the meter and to get 259 miles when they start from 100%. The second part of this of course is impossible as the actual mileage from full to empty varies greatly on a wide variety of conditions. But the consistency of the first part actually is possible to do.
But then you'll get GOM's like mine on the FIAT where after a 5 mile drive, it adjust to actual conditions possibly dropping 15 or 20 miles of projected range. Personally, I don't think it's very helpful. But maybe is offers comfort to those who need to see a consistent number based on consistent behavior.
Perhaps, we are not understanding each other.
But, I did have a first this morning, see Massive drop on the range display (GOM/Guess-O-Meter)
