@Phil Hayward I just watched The 350 mile range video and that was painful. Did he average about 22 miles an hour for almost 16 hours?
Very dangerous in my opinion because driving 30 under the speed limit is as dangerous as 30 over. Still interesting to push the limits.
I loved the voltage...
I have no idea what the troll @KasEV said but that is the one person that can be safely ignored on these boards.
That muppet is more interested in attention than engaging in conversation. Click ignore and avoid.
I have the latest eZS updates and I have BP Chargemaster box, I was going to reply that I have no issues with timed charging but after testing it’s obviously broken.
I plugged my car in this morning outside of my schedule and it started charging which is not what I want at peak.
the app and...
Your GOM is being reasonable @Chrispydoc its assuming you will average 3.95 mkWh.
For your trip of 156/176 miles, you must have been averaging 4.1 mkWh.
The interesting question for me is why some cars are so optimistic/broken after the comfort2 update.
So there are four of us now...welcome to the elite club.
Your GOM is now highly inaccurate after the update unfortunately. There is no extra battery being utilised.
It is assuming that you will be averaging 5 mileskWh for the whole charge.
(It IS possible to reach 212 miles with the eZS under...
With kinetic energy recovery when you let off the accelerator the motor will spin backwards creating a braking force while charging the batteries.
Ingenious use of energy recovery considering its energy that would normally be lost in a conventional disc brake system. I remember it it’s debut in...
Hi @shawncullen and welcome. :)
I've come across this issue twice before, I've posted a few suggestions on the video. (door drain plugs or sunroof drain). Hopefully its an easy fix, but yes I would be shocked if this happened to me.
Hope your wait goes quickly.
Come join me on a 2 hour misadventure, recorded proof of my claims. It amused me driving past Sheffield 'speed limit 60 for clean air'. Thinking about it, it would be interesting incentive if BEV owners had a different higher speed limit.
The video is really shaky, so I recommend pausing it...
I’ve just recorded my GOM being inaccurate by about 100 miles over just one charge.
It told me I could do 215 miles on 99% charge. Lol 😂
After 108 miles of driving It was saying 27 miles remaining with 13% charge.
I’m going to upload the video tomorrow.
I would say 100% accurate, miles per kilowatt hours is measured empirically. If your journey is averaging 3.75 miles/ kilowatt then your range will be 158. Your total average is 4.3 so 182.75 is your real range.
This is perfect and realistic as it’s very easy to average 3.75. Obviously if...
That's a shame. On one hand I want to go easy on MG as they're still a fledgling company but on the other hand its annoying watching them struggle. I made that video so you had proof.
So do these buff out then??
You’re absolutely right @Kithmo, I’m aware of all the variables that will affect range. I’ve been getting as low as 2.8 miles/kWh on a morning.
My broken GOM still believes I can do over 200 miles easy at this rate.
I will make a two hour time lapse video to demonstrate how bad ‘my’ GOM is.
@Mark Holmes its simple maths, your driving style makes your GOM halfway accurate. Depending on SOC % it will estimate between 4.6 and 4.9 mkWh. Your average is 4.4 which we know is 187 miles range. This is only 20 miles off its full charge estimate. On your test, average 70 on the motorway.
Hi @Bobby759 , can I ask what your miles per kilowatt readings are? On the trip computer it’s displayed on both total accumulated and current journey screens.
There is no way we are getting 200 miles range unless we have Zeus himself sitting in the passenger seat topping up the battery...
