Looks like you've mastered the beast. By the power vested me by the 100 mile Academy, I hereby proclaim you "37".

I expect a 200km run from you soon, while the battery is new and the weather warm !!!!!

As the newest member of the 100-mile club at number 38, I managed 101.1 miles with pretty normal driving on a Sunday afternoon. My route was from Gilroy to San Jose, Ca., and back, with additional driving in both cities. My only adjustment was taking back roads rather than the freeway. I never went over 50 mph, kept it in Eco mode, no air conditioning, but had the radio on. Never did get to the dreaded turtle, but my final few miles were spent circling my neighborhood because I didn't want to have to push my Leaf home!

Did you happen to notice if/when you got the Low Battery warning and the Very Low Battery warning? Put another way, was your GOM (Distance to Empty display) flashing or showing three bars? And if flashing a number, what number was it showing?

On my run, I saw LBW with 9 on the GOM, which is the highest number I've seen when hitting LBW. Normally I see 3-5 miles.

I came back to this thread looking for energy consumption data from 100% to LBW for cars which have lost one or more capacity bars. Interestingly, not a single LEAF owner has reported driving 100 miles or more with one or more capacity bars missing. That said, it clearly seems possible given LEAFfan's amazing accomplishment.

I could be getting close to a losing capacity bar, and just made my fourth (and second longest) 100+ mile single-charge drive last Saturday. Whenever I do lose a bar, I will certainly continue testing for range and capacity.
8/18/12 capacity test results:

107.1 miles to VLBW, 108.0 miles in total, by the odometer...

The apparent loss of ~ 9% of total battery capacity since 9/7/11, plus an undetermined amount of capacity loss over the summer of 2011, prior to my first range test, might indicate I am close to losing a capacity bar...or it might not.

My first time trying this. I did about 60 miles on the freeway, average speed was around 60 mph. Nice to know how far the car can go. I hope this picture works. I went 101.5 miles. I hit LBW at about 9 miles. GOM said I had about 4 miles left when the VLBW came on and switched to the 3 dashes. I figured it was time to quit.

Congrats on reaching this milestone. We don't use the GuessOmeter at all, or CarWings, for these events. Check out the range chart linked in my signature line to get an idea how much further it might go.

You shall hereinafter be referred to as "39".

MY fifth and sixth 100+ miles single charge trips, of 108.0 and 109.4 miles, while testing my LEAF's range and capacity:

I am amazed that some LEAF drivers still don't want to use Carwings.

Carwings compiles exactly the same (not-quite-accurate) kWh use numbers as reported on your dash, but also gives you very useful reports of regen from each trip. For example, on 9/8/12:

107.4 miles to VLBW, and 109.4 miles in total by, odometer.

As reported by CW, 106.8 total miles (~2.5% under report), at 6.4 m/kWh, using 16.7 kWh.

Unfortunately, CW can't seem to fix what appears to be inaccuracy in my LEAF's dash and nav screen kWh use reports, as reported at the thread above.
