I generally succeeded on work days (e.g. got it into an area that stayed below 80 F even on 90+ F ambient temp days and always kept it out of the sun). I also left my car outside for several hours each night to cool before driving it into my garage at home.
I'm surprised it hasn't happened already as I've not seen SOH this low nor Hx down to 80.xx% before.
As of earlier this evening (11/20/17)
odo: 49,563 miles
I figured it'd happen soon after SOH hit 84% back on 11/15, but I guess not.
I finally lost my 1st bar tonight on 11/21/17.
I know in the morning I had all 12 bars. I'm pretty sure I left work w/all 12 bars. I stopped to get something to eat on the way home and when I powered up, 1 bar was gone. Upon connecting w/Leaf Spy my stats w/the bar gone were:
(Leaf Spy's SOC: 64.9%)
odo: 49,598 miles
0 QCs (this car doesn't have a CHAdeMO inlet)
3212 L1/L2s (I use the charging timers with the 80% midnight to midnight trick virtually every workday so I know this count is way inflated due to its quirks. If I charge at home (rare), I usually use a timer since I'm on a TOU plan and also want to limit the amount of time spent at 100% charge.)viewtopic.php?p=430825#p430825
had this car's stats when I bought it used in July 2015. Carfax and Autocheck say my car was manufactured 5/23/13. Carfax says my vehicle was first "sold" on 6/22/13.
Anyone here have an '11 or '12 Leaf in the South Bay part of the SF Bay Area have/had a build month 4 to 6 in 2011 or 2012? If so, at about what mileage and vehicle age did your first bar go?
If nobody gets to it, I'll try to add myself and a few other bar losers (esp. some of the 30 kWh ones) sometime between this weekend and end of year to http://www.electricvehiclewiki.com/Real ... acity_Loss
