Does calculated reference consumption take temperature into account?

Question

I have the same question. My issue is that I am guessing if there is a kind of "double accounting" of the effect of low temperatures when planning winter trips.

Let me explain:

I set "winter tyre configuration" to separate summer/winter configuration.

the calibrated reference consuption increases (obviously), but I do not know if it increases only because of the winter tyres or also because of lower temperatures.

in the latter case, when planning at low temperatures, I suspect that ABRP would consider low temperatures twice: one because of the road conditions that influence the air drag, and two because the calibrated consumption is higher because of the low temperatures.

Thanks for explaining if possible

I have the same feeling.

Is this a bug?

Any official statement?
