Your and SageBrush's comments raise valid points. Without a complete data set, valid conclusions can't be determined.
If the missing data doesn't exist, the "test'' provided basically no insight in the Plus' battery heating while driving, or
how that might affect a QC section after reaching the shopping destination.
#1 Leaf SL MY 9/13: 74K miles, 48 Ahrs, 5.2 miles/kWh (average), Hx=70, SOH=78, L2 - 100% > 1000, temp < 95F (35C), min discharge (DOD) > 20 Ahrs
#2 Leaf SL MY 12/18: 115 Ahrs, 5.5 miles/kWh (average), Hx=98, SOH=99, DOD > 25%, temp < 105F

It really depends on one's definition of a road trip.
Mine overheated after a 235mi drive to pick up my daughter from Newark Airport. I don't consider that a road trip.

My observation is that my Leaf ads 0.1C/km during sustained driving on a road ~ 100km/h or 55-60mi/h at 22C/72F outside temp. If you add pauses with the car parked in a cool place (underground parking) the situation changes considerably.

So if you could provide more data it would be appreciated.

The Leaf Plus 62kWh is now added in the route planner http://www.abetterrouteplanner.com using an estimated model of available energy and charging speed. This can be used to plan road trips etc.

It is also possible to upload LeafSpy data to abetterrouteplanner server. Then you can get online route planning that adjust to the actual consumption and SOC etc while driving, ex like in a Tesla.
The consumption and charge data is also used to improve the model of the car to make it more accurate.
