Sorry about that, Chief!

Is your VIN shown incorrect, given that is a 2011 VIN? Perhaps you entered that back when only four digits were allowed?

About the only no-no I engage in at all is rapid acceleration as I try to pre-emptively dismiss the slow golf cart meme at lights more often than I might.
That sounds a lot like our climate here. Differences that I see are that I try to promote the golf-cart meme by driving at low power most of the time.
And I charge to 100% approximately once each week, so perhaps 150 times so far.

Has your LEAF had the P3227 update applied, yet? I'm going to gues that it has not based on how close Hx is to SOH. (Mine diverged significantly immediately after the update.)
In any case, here are my numbers for a 2011 LEAF assembled in June 2011 and purchased on March 16, 2012 with 2011 miles on the odometer. It was a demo vehicle. VIN is 5926.
Imediately before the P3227 update about three weeks ago:
Odo=18,436 mi AHr=58.04 Hlth=85.66%
Odo=19,002 mi AHr=58.71 Hlth=78.00%
My AHr number is still dropping following the update, so I would take the "Yesterday" reading with a grain of salt. I have no idea how much farther it will drop. If you haven't yet had the update, then you can compare with the other reading.

One thing we have done for the past 18 months is to fill the car only to the point that it will return home with about 30% charge. Then it remains there until just before we need it again. Does that help? I have no idea.
One other note: Cell-pair 37 in our LEAF seems to have a bit less capacity than the other cell pairs. Do you see one of your cell-pairs going below the others when you get to low SOCs, like 20% or below?
Anyway, thanks for the datum! It's good to have something to compare against! Most of the LEAFs on this forum are in quite different climates than ours!
