I did not state an opinion before, but I can offer up some arithmetic:
A new 24 kWh LEAF is about 22 kWh usable
We think your LEAF is at 75% capacity, so 22*0.75 = 16.5 maximum kWh usable
You say you arrive home after 40 miles of winter driving with 20 - 25% SoC remaining,
So the trip consumed ~ 16.5 * 0.775 = 12.865 kWh
That works out to 320 Wh/mile.
From my experience it is certainly possible but it would require smart use of the heating components, probably dry roads, and speeds under 65 mph. If you pre-condition the car before the drive it would go far in explaining your results.
