For 6 months I was driving 125-150 miles per week day at 70-80 mph and almost always coming home in power limit mode due to low SOC. I was generally charging at 240V/40A. Then I moved closer to my job and only have 120V available. Then for about 1 year I was charging in standard every day and the range never dropped below 120 miles. Recently (2 months) I have been letting the range drop much lower and typically charge to 60-80 miles unless I know I have a long trip. (after talking to MPT).
