Here is an updated set of data. Did more trips from our home in Minneapolis to our cabin in Northern WI or back the other way. Some trips with a mt bike on a hitch rack and some with no attached gear (a "Naked" truck).

A 165 mile trip. 1/2 on Interstate at 70 mph and 1/2 on state highway at 55 to 60 mph. Plotted out vs temperature.

The bike rack definitely cuts the range of the vehicle by about 10%. The shaded areas on the chart are the 95% confidence intervals on the fitted 2nd order curve to the data.

The 2nd chart is my estimated range on a full battery pack assuming 125 kWh available.

Impressive! This is with aero covers on? Have you made any trips without them? I haven’t seen any exact testing with and without.
This is my truck. I'm not focused on wheel's/covers like some guys are so I don't really know what these covers would be called. Have not ever changed or removed them to see the effect.

Great pic! Those black inserts in the wheels come off. Those are the aero covers they may increase range but many people prefer the look with them out. My assumption is they add 5 miles of range at most on a full charge.
