    4DB94687-BBA7-47B9-8943-08FCF9A3AA79.jpeg 33.6. That’s nothing. I’ve seen it as high as 36.6. I know I know, it’s really a “guessometer” but I still like seeing it rather than 24-26 in the dead of winter

    In my case, springtime is when I no longer need to use A/C (for heating). I almost never use A/C for cooling, so the guess-o-meter range jumps even more significantly. If you turn off the A/C, your guess-o-meter would have been around 36 miles.

    See the difference in the icon? The top is a prediction of the EV range with A/C on, and the middle is a prediction of the EV range with A/C off. The difference is usually 1-3 miles depending on how hard A/C is predicted to work for your setting and temperature. You can also see those two different Guess-O-meter EV ranges on the Drive Monitor 2 in the MID if you toggle the screen. (shown on the bottom photo for example). I don't use the Guess-O-meter on the HSI (just SoC %), so I don't remember well, but I think it toggles between those two icons depending on your HVAC setting. If you tun ON the A/C, then it will show with A/C on, and if you turn it off it will show wth A/C off.

    You guys are lucky. My highest ever was 28 since I live right next to the Pacific Ocean and it's always cold.
    And I was so happy with 28.

    36.8 highest I ever had.
    It seems to be a certain set of circumstances that allows that. A certain temp and just enough sun, but not too hot or too much. Haven’t figured it out just yet above the obvious warm weather = higher numbers

    Well, today I just absolutely crushed my all time record. I was stunned. Charged during the day low 80s outside. Wow. Just wow.
