Time to start some measurments

So after almost a month of getting used to the new MINI-E I have decided that it is time to start paying attention to the numbers. While I was 110v charging I did not pay any attention to the usage patterns other than to make sure I could get where I was going and home again.

Now that I have the 32A charger and will be leaving with a full tank every day I am going to start my log of stats. I went down to the garage and reset all the measurements that I am able and we will see what we get from here.

It is worth mentioning that I do not drive #269 with any sense of conservation. I drive it like I would drive a gas powered equivalent. Though up to now I have been avoiding the AC when I can.

Here were the numbers I had when I reset them

Miles 736
Avg Mph 18.5
Ah/100M 72
Miles remaining at 100% = 93

I dont think I'm getting what some are.


  1. Hi Michael,

    Great for you for driving with enthusiasm! I am the same way in the sense that I am not trying to hypeymile.

    I am at 96Ah Per 100m and mile remaining iat 100soc is 85.
    Most of my driving is freeway 80mph. And really fun driving!

    Cheers and greetings from Ca.

  2. I'm at 70Ah Per 100M. I know it was higher when I got the car. I plan to reset everything at 1000 miles. I'm pretty close to that now.


  3. Can someone translate Ah to kWh? I know this is basic stuff, but I'm bad at electricity and I pay $.20/kWh. What kind of "mileage" are you 3 getting then, at 70/72/96 Ah/100miles, and why the big gap?

  4. #402 is at 652 miles
    avg of 27 mph

  5. I've never gotten better than 70 ah/100km, even staying below 60 on the highway, no daytime running lights, etc etc etc. I'm pretty frustrated ...
