When charging the car 100% why is it giving me different distance. From 230 to 275 do I need to reset something
As I understand it, your Taycan mileage computer takes many factors into consideration when estimating mileage....whether you select normal/sport/sport plus, etc.....past use of heat/A/C/seat heating/cooling, etc., and past driving behavior. So for example, if I turn off all accessories, and use "Range", on a warm summer day, I can get 316 miles range.

From my experience one of the largest swing factors is outside temperature. As temps drop, predicted and actual range does as well.
Another big factor is the type of driving (highway vs. country roads vs. city). If I plug a destination into the nav system that requires 100% freeway driving (75 to 80 mph), the range drops by about 15% instantly. You can also see this on the range calculator web page: Porsche Taycan Turbo - Porsche Great Britain

Agree with the outside temp comment. This is my first winter--purchased June 1 in the mid-Atlantic (USA) region, so hot summers. I have noticed range predictions are lower now that we've made it to the season where daytime temps range 4-10 C. Also a big difference with DC charging speeds. Example--in the summer, my battery temp might be 30 C when I initiate a charging session, and the delivered rate might be 80-110 kW/h from the get go. Over the past two weeks, my battery has been at about 8 C when I start, warming to 34 C by the end of the 30 minute session, but delivered rate is much lower for the first 15-20 minutes starting at about 42 kWh and increasing to 80 or 90 for the last 10 minutes. This is interesting, because the contract with Electrify America is based on time--30 minute sessions. So I can get about 30-35 kW in a 30 minute charge in the winter, but 40-45 kW in 30 minutes in the summer. I usually AC charge at home, but found an Electrify America location near my commute route, so I've been stopping more than usual recently and noticed I was not getting as much of a charge as I did back in the summer. Just an interesting observation.
