I like to use 500Wh/mile as a worst case to ensure I have enough capacity. Situations like cold days and needing electric heat, or are driving through rain and using wipers and headlights, or driving through bad road conditions like slush and snow. It all increases power used. Perhaps in Mississippi its not as big of a deal since they don't have the harshness of Wisconsin winters.
