Hello All: I got my MS85P+, Red, PanoRoof on 6/28. It's exhilarating! However, I am concerned about the discrepancy between the rated miles and the actual miles I am getting. Two nights ago my wife accidentally toggled the charging from standard to max on the iPhone app. My car charged to 274 rated miles. I have not charged it since, and I noticed that the actual driven miles from last charge are 67, but the rated miles remaining are only 183 (I should have around 207) – where did the 24 rated miles go? I have been concerned about this ever since I got the car, and I have called Tesla twice. The first guy told me to change from the ideal miles that my system was set to miles, which he said are accurate to within a few miles. When this did not seem to be the case, I called again, and I was told to just drive the car for 2 weeks, and the computer will “learn” my driving habits, allowing the rating calculation to become more accurate. However I have read on this forum that that is actually not the case. I don’t see how I can take this car on a long trip if there is around a 10+% discrepancy between traveled versus expected miles. I have deliberately been laying off the pedal, coasting without using the brakes, and I have the climate set to extended range. Please give me your thoughts.
