... And I'm learning about my own personal 'range anxiety' ...
Come on Dan, be positive, think of it as 'range excitement', keeps you alert and on the edge. Grin

I love a good game of "fuel light bingo" - [yes I am a child at heart]. I always fill the car to the brim and run it until empty, The sense of achievement when you arrive at your destination with 0 miles remaining and your wife shaking her head and tutting in your ear is great Smiley  I would assume if /when I get an EV I will get the same sense of achievement running the range down to zero!  (only slight concern would be damage to the battery by to deep a discharge - might take the edge off of the fun)

I expect zero range game will quickly lose its appeal when turtle mode kicks in

E Niro warnings commence with around 8% remaining charge so 20 ish miles

Ah but if you are playing the game properly then chances are you are already in full eco driving (turtle speed) mode - especially when you have underestimated things a bit. Grin
