Phx AZ Leaf, 16000 miles...Life time 6M/KWH.. Loss one bar this week,2 days after getting a perfect score on the one year battery check ...I thought maybe the software upgrade had something to do with it,but the dealer said no..
One year charging routine..
First 6 months were all 100% charges,I was attempting on every 60 mile work trips to break previous M/kwh records ..I think I did well but Leaffan did better
The following 6 months I charged 60% of the time to 80% ,those were day trips and 40% were 100% charges where I drove at night..
I think i may do 95% of my charges to 80% doing the hot summer and 5% when I need the extra miles..
Doing the winter Im going to do 80%/100% charges and 20%/80% charges..
Im really not seeing a big difference between my 100% charges and the other AZ cars that were doing 80% charges,that could change tho as the cars get older..
If i were Nissan for 2013 ..The Leaf / Eco mode with option to go to (Drive). 80% charges with the option to go to 100% charges..
