I wanted to pass along to all that a LEAF can be used as a relatively high mileage commuter.
Today is the last day of year one. I have driven over 37,750 miles and that is with 48 days during the year with no driving. My expected mileage was 40,000 so I'm not that far off.
Today I took the car in for the battery test - 5's all the way around.
This recent article may answer some of the whys and hows. http://www.greencarreports.com/news/107 ... no-problem
The LEAF isn't perfect but it is doing what I wanted. Thanks to all in this forum that have helped each other with our "experiment".
