My Blink charger reports 13 to 15kWh to charge the 10 or 11 bars. Accounting for charging efficiency loss, this implies to me that the battery is less than 16kWh capacity, certainly not 24kWh.
I see some minor discrepancies in the numbers you report, but nothing really major. Is that 3.5 m/kWh a long term average, or for recent driving? If it is long term, and you have been experiencing colder than usual weather recently (it would help if you provided some location information), your recent average may be somewhat lower than that.
So let's say your recent average is really 3.0 m/kWh, like mine has been (even though my overall average is about 4.0). That would give just under 12kWh used per day. This would agree nicely with what your Blink is reporting, since 240v charging efficiency is about 85%. 14kWh x .85 = 11.9kWh to the battery. Charging 12kWh at 3.3kW should take 3.6 hours, again agreeing with what you are seeing.
There seems to be general agreement that 2011 LEAFs (other than any early ones out there still running "old bars") have about 1½ "hidden bars" below the 12 visible ones. So if we divide your 10 or 11 bars by 13.5, we find that you are using roughly 75-80% of the usable portion of your battery. If you are using 12kWh, that makes your usable capacity 15-16kWh. As cwerdna said, you started out with about 21kWh usable and, unless you have had a recent software update, the first capacity bar seems to disappear at about a 20% loss. That would suggest you should be somewhere around 16.8kWh. That's off a bit from what I just calculated, but not all that much. All these numbers we are throwing around are approximations, including the 21kWh initially available. Some people seem to start with at least 22kWh, others may only get 20kWh initially. Perhaps you were one of the unlucky ones.
Bottom line: I think your numbers do add up, and I am sorry you are experiencing the loss, but battery life, for all types of rechargeable batteries, is limited.
