Re: I Beat EPA's 2.9 Miles/KWh : Report Your Monthly Mileage

My 2012 LEAF has a total of 36,500 miles and a lifetime average of 4.7. I bought it new in August of 2012. It has lost 2 capacity bars and still meets 95% of my driving needs. My 2002 Chrysler Town & Country covers the rest of my driving for trips over 60 miles. Very happy with my LEAF.

Wow, impressive numbers. I'm at 4700 miles on my 2017S and the average is 4.5 kWh/mile. It might creep up a bit during the summer since I have no heat pump but probably not much. Commute is 90% highway (55-65 mph) and probably 70% of miles are during the commute.

Same here, just got CPO Leaf SV 2015 in PA (local car). Looks like great battery, got 4.7m/kW on 90 Miles trip, got first low battery warning (as expected) at the end of the trip and finished with 17 miles left . After full charge it shows 100 miles in ECO and 94 in normal D mode. I found fuel gauge to be pretty accurate, although it takes some skills to drive EV efficiently and "not too slow" so you do not annoy many drivers behind your EV. I did not experience any range anxiety, at least no more than a gas powered cars.

According to the "REGIONAL ECO RANKINGS" screen of the Nissan Connect EV&Services app, I got "Average Monthly 5.9 miles/kWh". I presume that's for the month of May. I guess that's as reported by the Leaf through the 3G TCU to Nissan's servers. Based on the dashboard display of mi/kWh, something over 5 is believable, although almost 6 seems a little optimistic.

I'm not sure what my monthly is ATM, but I'm getting anywhere from 3.4-3.7mi/kWh driving pretty much all freeway, 82 mile round trip commute every day.

Edit: 3.5mi/kWh this month according to EV services app.
Looking at world rankings, how the hell is anyone getting over 5mi/kWh average? The top 5 are from 8.8-10.3... That's insane. Are they getting towed for most of their drive? :lol:

Pretty easy, actually

Drive slow (not highway)
Minimize brakes. This usually means coasting to turns and stops

Live in a very flat area (like Texas or Nebraska), drive at 30 mph or less, plan stops well in advance and coast to all stops shifting into neutral, accelerate slowly and only as much as necessary. Slipstream behind other cars whenever possible and avoid driving in the rain if possible. Boring as Hell to do but you'll be surprised at the mileage gains possible.

Ah, well...Utah is anything but flat. My commute is all freeway and an 800 foot elevation change from end to end. I'll just keep trying to get 4mi/kWh and be happy with that. :lol:

I live in Colorado and average about 5 miles a kWh. Flat terrain is not a requirement for good fuel economy.
As for shifting into neutral: Never have, never will.
