Maximum realized charge rate

I mostly charge at home, however when fast charging I have yet to ever see anything better than 130KW. Even with no other vehicles connected at the location.
often charge at 150kw station and only achieve 41kw.
this is with the battery not near the fringes of capacity.
What are other users seeing!
On 50kw I see 40 or so, seems reasonable.
On 150’s I’ve seen 41, 80, and 120 - I have seen 70 go up to 120 after another vehicle on the station leaves (group of chargers. It just the individual 2x “pole”)
Even on 350’s I have never seen over 130

I was going to screenshot it but they have gone over cause they were over a month ago. But I charged at 3 stations, all EA 350s and I hit a max ~172-175kw
Ditto on 170-175 kW peak. EA stations then settle in at around 140kW, then drop to around 120 kW, then around 40 kW from 80-90% SOC.
