For most of us, the locations of DCFC stations (that are functioning) will be the greatest variable, and one that can change with each trip. This makes every trip segment unique, such that you might drive 75 mph on one segment and 55 mph on the next. The academic example of doing a journey in 5 charges vs 3 charges may only apply to Tesla owners. The rest of us have to figure the optimum speed between each of the only 4 chargers that are available.
