Question about range

If, for example, the RR after full charge is 75 miles:
After travelling, say 20 miles, the remaining range would be 55 miles, or hopefully even more
If it is less, how much less would be considered a problem?

Can display be programmed to miles?

RR in kilometres

My Range Remaining display is in kilometres
Although not a significant problem, I prefer not having to calculate the range in miles since all road signs are in miles

Charger lock and RR display

Even though the plug is locked during charging in public charging areas, the 'gun' can easily be removed, this can easily be overcome by drilling a hole in the release button in order to attach a padlock for example to prevent the button from being pressed Also the range remaining bars should be sep...
