That sounds like a complicated spreadsheet. Perhaps a predictive model would be a better description?

My battery requirements may need some revision.
So are you willing to share? Predicted weight of the car, required battery, depth of discharge, watt-hours required per km or mile?

I'm sure that it's not just me who - others would be fascinated as well!

I'm not asking for the spreadsheet, just some juicy details
