First the trip- 720 mi round trip. 1st leg to Paso Robles from San Diego. 2 charge stops, could have made one one, but for first trip wanted to be careful and see how accurate Google was (not very). Never used ChargePoint or their partner EVgo as ElectrifyAmerica was faster and more accessible. Now for return trip. Paso to Camarillo, Google said I would need a charge stop. I didn’t believe it but again to be safe planned a stop in Santa Barbara. Got to Santa Barbara with more than enough charge to continue to Camarillo. Good thing cause chargers were not available in SB. Got to Camarillo and here is where the trouble began. Since ChargePoint has few of any level 3 chargers I opted to use EVgo 50w chargers. Well the connection kept failing even though I have over $460 of credit. Had to call EVgo and have them start the charge AND PAY FOR IT. So much for the charging partnership. Ok, now to San Fernando Valley to see my daughter. Once there I knew I would need another charge to make it from there. Tried 3 different EVgo chargers with the same connection fail message. Tried with my EVgo card and no problem. So, clearly an issue trying to charge via ChargePoint at EVgo chargers. I now had 81%. Planned route via Google for San Diego. Google said I would be at -13% when I arrived. With past experience I didn’t believe this. So headed out. About 30 miles into the drive Google’s calculation now said -15% on arrival REALLY. Anyway, rest of trip uneventful. When arriving at SD I had 28% charge left. So, Google was off by 41-43%. Not real good calc. And my use rate was between 32-33 per 100 miles.
