I created one for Priuschat for FE complaints at http://priuschat.com/threads/fuel-econo ... new.77074/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;, which became a sticky.
Over there, I got so tired of trying to help people complaining of "poor" mileage who provide scant or no info. I found myself asking usually a whole bunch of (the same) questions over and over, only to either have them spoon feed a couple answers or worse, have them never return to Priuschat. I'd also noticed lots of people spending time to also ask questions, guess as to the OP's situation, etc. which also IMHO, a waste of time and futile, if the OP doesn't return.
Discuss what you think should go in a simple questionnaire and at least gives us something to go on and can let the complainer know things like: you're driving too fast, that's normal, something is way wrong, you're driving it wrong, you're calculating/estimating wrong, that's actually really good, etc.
http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 66#p261466" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; was my stab at it:
Maybe something along the lines of starting # of fuel bars? # of fuel bars at end of trip/commute?- Miles/kwh? From where are you reading this?
- Elevation changes?
- How are you using the HVAC system?
- Gid count at 100% charge? Date and outside temp when taken?
- How are you "determining" your range? (e.g. driving down to some value on the GOM, driving down to a certain # of "fuel bars", driving to LBW, VLBW or turtle)
- How full are you charging to?
- How many capacity bars have you lost?
Tony proposed a test at http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 96#p261496" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;, which I think maybe should be stickied too and used as a followup, if needed.
I'd really like a Leaf owner/lessee to own the questionnaire though.
March 2013 edit: My current running revision of the questionnaire is at http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 21#p275421" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;. I'll probably just keep updating that post, based on suggestions. I would really like a Leaf owner to own the "final" questionnaire though since I don't have a Leaf yet.
