Someone on a Facebook group (I know, I know) suggested that he gets more range by disabling auto stability control (aka traction control). But he couldn't really explain why that might be.

Any opinions?

I've just driven 34 miles with it off and it kinda-maybe looks like I've used about a blob less charge than I usually do on that route. I don't think I was driving any more economically than usual, but let's see how my return leg goes!

You beat me to it. I can't see any way turning off ASC would increase range. If you don't drive aggressively enough to cause wheel spin or lose traction the ASC has nothing to do. All it does is reduce motor torque and/or apply differential braking to one of the rear wheels if one wheel is spinning (for example in ice) and the other wheel has traction. Not applicable for moderate summer driving.
