So I have noticed this last week that when we get in the car at the departure time (preconditioned) the SOC needle is not quite 100% (not buried). It actually looks like about 98-99%. Although this is not a huge deal it does affect our range some. Because it starts at 99%ish the power seems to drop quicker compared to when the needle is buried at 100%. I guess because it is already on its way down.

I thought that the preconditioning would not draw from the batteries? I expect the batteries to be completely topped off at depart time. Isn't that the point of it? I am using the CC LCS-25. I assume that it provides enough extra juice to run the preconditioning and keep the batteries topped off?

Anyone else notice this?
