1000+ miles in between fill ups.

I've stopped charging the car recently after seeing that the battery stays around 90*f in use and drops to little less than about 86 overnight.
I'm not entirely sure what temperature battery degregation occurs at for this particular battery. But using it as an ev and even in ev later mode keeps the battery around 90*f all day and most of the night.
Parking in a garage with the doors shut and outside temperature being 70*f at night, the garage doesn't appear to cool below 80*f.
Currently am using ev later and keep the battery between 20-30% displayed charge.
Will resume using ev mode once ambient temperatures start to dip.

Really is a good idea.

I try to give car good 3-2 hours when I return home to cool down before charging.
Also like to topup in the morning before leaving for work when temps are at the lowest point and car is as cold as it will get.
Same for my BEV, have schedule to charge at 1 past midnight to 80% then topup in the morning while having breakfast.
It is very hard to avoid degradation in summer, especially in warmer climates.
