i agree that all data collected should be released. as end users, we all have "something" to contribute especially ones who have monitoring equipment of some sort.
The GOM bases its info on what the LEAF gives it and GIDs are part of that equation.
the GIDs are highly dependent upon several things i am guessing which can include ambient heat, battery pack temps, age, cycles, speed of charge, etc.
it seems that if you run your TBs to 9-10 (still in the white mind you) you probably have permanent reduction in capacity even if your pack is a week old and that reduction is not readily apparent since GIDs are so variable that immediate changes will not be seen.
the tests were great but its different drivers, different driving conditions, different traffic, different everything.
routes were changed based on GID reading. turns missed, etc. so we need to determine an error margin for the data we have. despite all this there are things that can not be ignored
** forget what the car tells you. your own personal experience with the car will tell even a novice much more
** all cars exhibited more range than the charge capacity bars said they had.
** some readings were glaringly wrong putting less "stock" into the disappearing" bar phenomena as being permanent
on my LEAF, i have decided that range testing is not a good thing and i fully believe that anything above turtle has neglible long term effects on pack longevity. there is no doubt a curve near turtle to consider and my personal thing is putting it at 15 GID. no data on this. just an arbitrary # about half way. for those of you who dispute this with NO EVIDENCE whatsoever, let me explain why i feel this way. ALL auto manufacturers provide warnings waaay in advance of a low fuel condition. this is nothing more. its like the "blinking" bar on my Prius. when it starts to blink and its Summer time, i know i need to get gas in the next 100 miles...
the other thing is speed. i found that driving 60 mph (odometer which i am guessing means its really 58) i am getting an estimated 88 mph. this is essentially sea level. average attitude here is 50-250 feet for about 80% of the areas i drive. occasionally i might go higher but only to crest the hill and go right back down.
for you guys, your speedometer reading being what 64? (62 GPS) means that people driving 79 miles who think they have loss? i think your loss is neglible as well it should since both cars are relatively new
without testing on a track (should have asked Nissan to borrow their test track. probably not that busy on the weekend) where speed can be kept constant, no stops, no cross traffic, no on ramps, etc. the distance variation can easily cover the variances we see here.
on the GID readings. ya know from the middle of July to last weekend, i was convinced i had lost 5% of my range. not unhappy or anything. i had to go back and check my "diary" but that is way more than i expected to have at this point.
but lately i am testing at 1% loss. so i have a 4% swing in GID count. so even with a single car it really is a crap shoot getting hard specific data. now i know why Nissan needed a week. so do i!
charge completed today at 3:05 AM, checked it 6:30 AM. GID count 271. yesterday, it was 278. pack "should" be balanced. this is 5th day in a row charging to 100%.
i think my saving grace in all this?? my total 7 TB time being less than one hour
