    The estimate is not what matters, since it is purely an estimate based on previous history. How far you actually can go is the key. Have you been able to go the distance that equals the estimate?

    While past performance is no guarantee for the future returns, for me GOM has been fairly accurate in predicting how far I can drive on EV. My GOM stays 31-34 miles all summer long and I get 30-35 miles of actual EV range. However during winter time GOM always overestimate by 3-5 miles. It usually stays 20-25 miles, but in reality I can only get 18-20 miles during winter with heat on.

    The more consistent your driving, the more accurate it is. That's basically how it calculates it's range.

    If you're daily mi/kWh are the same, then the gauge is going to be accurate. If they vary a lot (different acceleration patterns / speeds / drivers) it'll be less accurate
