What were your results?
WE DID IT!!!
From Late last night/early morning my wife and I finally did the distance challenge. I will post detailed results later but wanted to let you know that we are now Number 77 in the 100 mile club and Number 10 in the 200Km club.
We left the house at 2:46am 3/30/14 at 100% (265gids from LeafDD). The first test was at freeway speed (cruise control set to 65mph). We made it to 68.9 miles with both dash and console showing 3.1 m/kwhr. Once the car slowed us down we only had a couple of miles until it shut down with us calling Roadside Assistance to be taken by flatbed to Mossy Nissan Kearny Mesa, San Diego DCQC.
We charged there for 45 minutes to about 90%, then moved over to the L2. By the time it reached 99% it was only 262 gids but did not want to wait another hour to get more electricity (it was already 6:30am). This next run had the cruise control set to 30mph on a 35 mph speed limit street with lots of stop lights. We drove a 10 mile circuit that was fairly flat, but after several circuits were only experiencing 5.4 m/kwhr. We then starting driving through a nearby industrial area with better roads and less lights. There we had a 6.1 mile circuit. We finally finished at 12:30pm, 6 hours later (with a 45min stop for a McBreakfast). The interesting thing was that the last few gids gave us much more distance. Earlier we were getting about .6 miles per gid, but from gid 6 to 5 we got 3.1 miles.
After driving a mile or so on gid 5 we started heading back to the dealer as we had an incline to climb going over a freeway and did not want to die on the road. As it turned out we got over the hump and started coasting downhill the quarter mile to the dealer. When we were passing the dealer the car shifted into (N) so we rolled through a right turn at the traffic light (light was green), down behind the dealer, then another right and up a 5 foot climbing driveway and left turn into the L2 charging station. Without the downhill momentum we would have never made it. As it was I barely used the brakes at the end. Total miles was 126.0 with 4 gids remaining. Not sure how many more miles we would have gotten if we had stayed plugged in another hour or so before starting, but we were tired and sleepy and did not want to wait. As it turned out we got just over 200 km. Another couple of miles would not have given us much. By about noon I was thinking that it would be not so nice if we missed the 200 km club by that extra amount, but in the end we made it.
On the first run we got 68.9 miles at 3.1 m/kwhr = 22.2 kwhr
On the second distance run we got 126.0 miles at 5.8 m/kwhr = 21.7 kwhr
