Getting used to the new car - so far so good. Just wondering about preconditioning the battery before driving. Is there an ambient temperature where preconditioning doesn't really help much with efficiency? My garage temp even in the winter rarely goes below 11C or 52F. I preconditioned for about 30 mins with the ambient around 17C or 62F today before leaving. Using a juicebox40A.

According to the journey log my efficiency improved to 21.1kWh/100km compared to 23.8 kWh/100km for the same trip a few days ago. I also did switch from comfort to ECO mode.

So just wondering if there are days where I just shouldn't bother preconditioning - in the summer when temps are 24c-27c, or 75-80F?.
