Really? And Ahrs don't? You can define how a GID is calculated and how it differs from total battery capacity at 100% SOC?
You do understand that even when the Leaf's battery is new, there's a sampling error associated with measuring Leafs
with very close mileage (< 500)? Maybe you need to get LeafSpy, visit a number of Nissan dealers and sample at least
five new Leafs per dealer and report back to MNL.
Bottom Line: You need to be more concerned about monitoring the degradation of the Leaf Plus battery after a few months,
especially during the Chicago heat and super humidity between July and August.
