In the meantime, NissanClient73 may wish to consult the 8 capacity bar range chart at https://www.dropbox.com/s/epy3s5bmcbu3g ... 3.pdf?dl=0
). At 60 mph at 70 F on level ground w/no HVAC usage (other conditions there), the car should average 3.9 miles/kWh and should be able to achieve at least 52 miles until dead. As I pointed out, in the Phoenix range test at a slightly higher speed of 100 km/h (~62 mph), a 4 bar loser achieved ~59 miles.
The range chart predicts 83 miles at 35 mph.
If NissanClient73 doesn't have anything that reads battery gids, he should get something that does. The video about Leaf Spy at viewtopic.php?f=55&t=25586&p=523867&hilit=youtube#p523867
may give more context. It's esp. important for '11 and '12 Leafs which have no % state of charge display. Gids can be used as a proxy for % SoC.
Also, side note, I do recall seeing either printed literature or stuff on Nissan's web site back then that outlined these scenarios: viewtopic.php?t=1226
