Range on a 2012 Fully charged

I'm a relatively new owner of a 2012 Volt with a Question. My EV miles have been 40-41 and as high as 44. Of late I'm at 35 every day. Should I be concerned or is this still in a normal range??

Any info would be appreciated!

Has the weather changed? Maybe you are getting used to driving it and not paying as much attention to economy driving. I just got a 2013 and my daughter had been getting 34-36 per charge. I just got 41 on my first charge. I reset the climate to econ and used my old Mobil Economy Run skills. I'm going to try for 45 by working on my regen braking habits.

I put a new set of tires on and that is the only change I have made. I haven't made any change in the way I have driven. Thanks for your reply.

Are the tires LRR (Low rolling resistance)? how much PSI? I can't see either of these accounting for a 5 mile drop though.

Tires are LRR. PSI is set at std 38 per mfg specs. The past 2 charges have increased to 36. I hope this will increase.
