Florida's flat roads and temps in the 70s let me achieve more than 100 miles (106.2) for the 11th time in my LEAF's first 2,660 miles. That makes 1,218.6 miles on single 100-plus mile charges, or 45.8% of my total driving. I hit low bat at 91.3; zero bars at 105.0; vlb at 105.7 and --- at 106.

It will be interesting to see in the next couple of years,how much battery degragation there is between 100% chargers and 80%..

Im 14k+ miles of 100% charging..Winter I avg 105+ per charge,the summer 120+ per charge..5.9 M/KW..

I thought I would break city charging distance records this winter in Phx, but to my surprise,cold batteries mean,less charging miles..So my winter avg went down to 105+ miles..
I actually do much better mileage doing the hot summer months with the AC on then doing the colder (40*)winter months..

I would love to see a battery study between my car @ 50K miles,where I charge the car to 100% 3 days a week,to someone else, who charges their car to 80% everyday..

Cold weather means heater use and reduced battery capacity. Hot weather means increased battery capacity and more efficient air conditioner use (more efficient than the heater).

Hot weather also means higher stress on the battery.

I'm going to guess you don't actually drive those quoted miles ? This is in the first post:

The GuessOmeter has nothing to do with this. Please don't even reference what that meter says. Only actual odometer reading. No CarWings data, either; even the latest firmware update has the mileage data 2.5% off

This is from 80% this morning. Should I try to attempt 100 miles from 80% or is this good enough to qualify for 100 mile club?

Post your experiences with joining the 100 miles Club and 200 km Club; that is, driving 100 miles or even better, 200 km (124.3 miles) or more, without a charge. This is not estimated, or thought you could, or maybe you got close.... your car actually powered the wheels for 100 miles or more without a charge.

The GuessOmeter has nothing to do with this. Please don't even reference what that meter says. Only actual odometer reading. No CarWings data, either.

In other words, KEEP DRIVING !!!!!!

Yes, keep on driving! With your energy economy, you should start with a 100% charge and go for a the long-distance record :-)

I am 6 miles short from 100 miles from 80%. I am going for 100 miles, even I hate to drive for no reason. Will report soon. Now I have 8 miles left on LBW.

I never intended or thought I will be able to do this so I started with 80% charge, but we had a lot of unexpected driving to do, once I did 70 miles I knew I will be able to go around 100 miles. Last 6 miles for no reason, just to go over 100. Most of the miles I had 4 people in the car plus some load. I am not sure how many more miles I will do with what is left, but because I need more that 50 tomorrow I am going to charge now. Maybe I should start with 100% and go for total driven record but I am not Tony - just beginner.

Oh, you've already beat me, because I've never done 100 miles from 80% !!! By the power invested in me by the 100 Mile Club, I hereby proclaim you to be a certified member, with all the honors and duties that every member receives.

Congratulations.

Tony

Very nicely done - I do believe that's the first 100 mi drive on a 80% charge! Can you tell us what kind of roads and driving speeds you did to get 7.0 mi/kWh?

I was happy to finish my day at 5.0 mi/kWh after 35 miles which included 4 mi of freeway at 60-65 mph and the rest surface streets 30-45 mph. I estimate you'd have to do a fairly steady 30-35 mph at the most to get 7.0 mi/kWh and roads around here just aren't amenable to that.
