From Skyline in Westminster, you can choose to take Pacific Coast Highway 101 most of the way down; speeds are slower and the distance is a good 5 miles shorter. Another advantage is that Laguna Beach is on the way (~1 mile off PCH) with it's free public chargepoint EVSEs (some 25 miles from Skyline) if you want some piece of mind. Just tell the LEAF to take the shortest distance route and it will take the 101 (CA-1).
I also drove up from San Diego (Mira Mesa Area). But, I stayed with the freeways, driving 60-65. On the way, I stopped for a couple hrs of free juice in San Juan Capistrano (Weseloh Nissan). Tony Dang @ Skyline plugged me in to 120V @ his shop while the work was being done; so I had 100% charge when I left for home. On the way back, I stopped @ Nissan of Oceanside (78 & College) for a couple hrs of charge. No reason anyone couldn't make it with a single charge from anywhere in the SAN area. Leather was the best thing I ever added to the Leaf. I just couldn't stand that cheap, fuzzy looking interior from the factory. It makes a HUGE difference.
