It seems you have not noticed any of the multiple comments here about the BMS reset -

The GOM has increased because your car wrongly thinks the battery is brand new again. It will go back to the real value in a day or two.

You might be right but so far this week has been pretty good (see video below). We'll see in a month or two.

How much % do you drain your battery on a daily basis? The BMS may not learn the true SoH unless you do a full deep charge cycle (or close to it as possible). Try discharging closer to 0% and full charge to 100%, it will help the BMS relearn. (At least it did for me). If you're still getting the higher range after doing the deep charge cycle once or twice, then it will be interesting!

I try not to go down past 20-25% if I can avoid it. So I won’t be able to do that deep charge cycle.
