I hereby apply for membership in the 100 mile club.
Yesterday I drove 122 miles at a 7.0 mpk average. I did start at ~500 ft elevation, but I was at sea level in just a few miles. I tried to maintain 30 mph, but in practice it was closer to 27-28, and the dash says an average speed of 24.9. Leafbatt screenshots and dash photos
Over the five hours of my journey, outdoor air temps rose from 52 to 58 under overcast skies in Seattle. I used no climate control or headlights – not even my seat heaters. I’m glad I did it early in the morning with light traffic as I was constantly watching my power meter and trying to keep my load to just one pixel.
I planned to hit turtle within a half mile of Younker Nissan’s QC (THANKS NISSAN!), but the plans didn’t work out as intended. Turtle came on when I was two large blocks away and I thought I was golden. When I got there, an ICE was in the QC spot (it was a customer’s car and the spot was only labeled
“customer”, so understandable) so I parked next to it thinking to move over when it came open.
Unfortunately, my Leaf took a full stop as an excuse to power down, leaving me unable to drive the one parking space to the QC! The sales manager was happy to let me charge and we stretched the L2 cord far enough to start charging. By the time the customer left, I still didn’t have enough charge to move, so they helped me push my car over to the QC. I charged up to 9 bars before I ran into my next appointment and had to leave.
I kept a Leafbatt log and I want to upload it. Can anyone suggest a free site or instructions on how to upload it directly to the board?
Not bad for a two year old pack with only 91.7% CAP!
