Probably a good idea.

I would, certainly, suggest everyone push their LEAF to its range limit at least once, just to see what it's capable of. But, I do have to question the benefit of doing it over and over again

I am constantly guilty of squeezing more miles from kWh. My travel mostly allow that, because I am going in opposite direction than main traffic. I say this is personal preference how we drive (if not impede others on the road), but I am very honest and realistic telling other what car can do.

Although I enjoy driving the Leaf more than any other car, it still doesn't compete with bicycling on a nice day. I've cycled to work every day this week and today is another perfect sunny, 50-70 degree day with no wind. 8-) Maybe I'll drive tomorrow, it's supposed to rain. :cry:

Thanks for the pity, but I don't spend that much time in my car. I drive only about 20 to40 miles per day, on average. It takes me 3-5 days to achieve more than 100 miles per charge. I just don't charge until the battery is drained. I know the battery will last longer with 80% charges, but it should last me 36 months, for the time of my lease, right?

I don't have a bicycle, but I ride motorcycles for a break from the car.

Second time getting to 100+.

Hit VLBW at 96.6.

I didn't actually intend to go this distance and just drove my normal commute with freeway miles. Only the last 20ish miles did I realize that it was working out well to hit the century mark.

Just finished with 105.1 on the trip odometer. Still had 5 miles of range left. This one time was enough. No AC, not freeway driving for two days just to see if I can do it.

Tony:

Did you see LEAFfan's super accomplishment on another thread? Here it is:

Yesterday, I participated in a 100 mile EV Efficiency rally and started with less than a 100% (100%=actually 94-95%) pack. It was around 85% SoC. Even with my 10% battery capacity loss, I still did 151 miles/8.5 console/8.4 dash m/kW h (only goes to 8.0 on the readout) on ONE CHARGE.

He is definitely the forum mileage leader. :!:

Thank you for catching that! Yes, we knew that since last summer, good to see some of the latest stats. It looks like LEAFfan has perfected his technique.

I would like to see more of those 150 mile efficiency EV Rallies, it would be great to combat range anxiety.

100 miles on a full charge. Hit VLB at 97. 5.2 miles/kWh

First 70 miles I drove at or above speed limits all city streets between 30 and 45 mph, but the last 20 miles below speed limit just to push it to 100 mile range. Too stressful and not worth the trouble repeating the feat, nevertheless I learned how to hypermile and get more range in case I need that.

More over with "100% ELECTRIC" chrome stickers on the back, I perhaps annoyed more than a few people driving slowly. To make it up I had an errand for 50 miles round trip the next day and managed to get only 3.7 miles/kWh driving like a maniac !!

Glad to get into the club.

Congrats on letting loose and driving like a maniac! 3.7 sounds like normal for me though. If I drive like a maniac I can keep it under 3.0.

Oh, I mean congrats on making the 100 mile club!
