It is so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.

I live my life 240 [ideal] miles at a time.

A new version of my log parser is now available with support for reading an approximation (± 0.03) of the car's Calculated Amp-hour Capacity (CAC) and a few other minor updates.
CAC is a value that some Tesla service techs have been telling owners is the best measure of the battery pack's capacity. The CAC for a nominal new battery is 160 Ah. It seems to correlate very well with ideal range in both standard and range mode and makes for a simple, unambiguous way to compare different battery packs.
If you'd like to compare your car to others, you can see a bunch of cars with their CAC values on the Plug In America Roadster Survey results page. If you haven't already, please consider adding your vehicle info and CAC to the survey.
