I went into Bookmans on Ina the other day and they said they would " unlock" the charge point station if I asked.. Since I didn't need a charge I didn't try it. ( as a matter of fact I've not used any public charging yet)

Tomorrow I plan to do a 60 mile round trip from Marana to Rita Ranch and back. Hopefully I'll make it

My commute is normally 40 miles and I've been doing 80%, getting home with 3 or 4 bars depending on the heat and traffic.. so charging all the way and only going 60 should work

As for the Blink card, I got mine before I got the car.. just asked for it on line in July...

There are two charging stations at Tucson Botanical Gardens. One has the Blink logo and requires a card, the other has a blank screen and does not require a card. Strange. There are three at Oro Valley Library, one in a Disabled Parking space! Can't imagine that one will get used much.

I read somewhere on this forum that there's some kind of law that requires things like charging station to be easily accessible to disabled people as well. So that's why they tend to put them right up front. It looks like in this case they made it easy on themselves and put it right in a Handicap space as well.

Four new Blink charging stations at the Kohls on Cortaro.

Have other Tucson LEAF owners lost capacity bars like the Phoenix owners are reporting? I lost one last month shortly after my one-year service.

I am getting close. My 80% charge shows a lower number of GOM miles, plus a couple of times the charge gave me only 9 bars.

I'm a bit worst off. Pretty much all my 80% charging gives my 9 bars and my GOM is about 10 miles lower than it was 6 months ago. I have about 9K miles on the car and have had it for 13 months.

Did you report your bar loss on the main capacity loss thread? I think you'd be the first Tucsonian on the list.

We are heading to a club that I don't want to join. I am just one week short of my one year mark, with only 6,000 miles. My 80% charge went from 83 GOM to 74 GOM. I do my 80% charge around 6 in the morning and leave around 9 so it is not spending significant time even at 80%. And my 5.6 m/kwh tells you how I drive. If I knew all this I would have leased. In the past year I have seen only 3 other Leafs.
