    When new charged up to 28 to take a full charge has slowly been stopping at lower and lower point.
    Now stops at 22?

    Colder temperatures can lower the EV range. Especially when you need to use the front defrost.

    Yeah I believe it changes based on your overall miles/kWh (Drive Monitor 2 shows it since you've last reset your energy consumption). Seems that way at least. Not sure if resetting energy consumption resets expected range. Mine started out in the low 20s and now I'm over 30 for my range. Most of my driving is in town < 45mph without too much traffic. My overall average is 4.8 miles/kWh so far. Keep your acceleration lower than the blue bar and your braking above the dashed charge line (when possible) and it might improve.

    put a meter on it, to see how many kWh it is taking.
