When I did mine, I had a hill I climbed every day. I live in Seattle. Lots of hills. But my commute is very short, all on 30 mph roads. I went even slower and drove like a grandma.

The street I am going to use for the 100 mile run has a 35 mph limit, with lots of lights, but long blocks. I am going to try to time myself so I can hit green most of the time and keep the start up from stop at the top of the meter of 8 m/kwh if at all possible. I have been practicing this. That early on a Sunday morning should be no problem. Plus it is a 4-lane divided street with a 5th center lane for turning most of the time so anyone can pass me to go faster.

I joined the 100 mile club today, actually 114.3 miles from 100% to turtle. Two round trips to work over the last two days and an extra 15 miles at the end today to get to turtle. I compiled a lot of stats that I will post to a different thread, but the bottom line is it was normal driving close to speed limit, good weather, flat terrain and now I know what my Leaf will do. I will try it again in a year or so and see what happens. If anyone would like the log file from Leaf Spy Pro let me know I will be happy to send it to you.

Congratulations, Mr. 75 (isn't it odd that we have no "Miss" members?).

The Club toilet scrubbing brush shall be passed on to our newest, most junior member at the next general meeting. Mr. 74 is looking forward to it, as he complains that he has "dignity issues" that preclude him from this most essential duty. I trust your service to the club will be less troublesome.

We are back-ordered on new Club jackets, but a shiny new "75" should be on a jacket shortly. Welcome to the Club.

Thanks Tony, however unless I can get you guys to move the next meeting to the east coast, I will be unable to accept the "Club Brush". Please accept my sincere gratitude of the brush offer, but hold it for the next member who is able to attend the meeting.

Regarding the lack of "Miss" or "Mrs" members, my wife thought I was crazy not to charge before making the second trip to work, didn't see why I wanted to bother driving the extra mile after my 99 mile two day commute and will never understand why I drove an extra 14 miles to get to turtle.

The Club location has never been revealed to the public, and we members must do our best to keep it secret. We wouldn't want the lesser, unwashed masses showing up at our pristine door.

This is my official submission to join the 100 mile club.

First let me indicate that my LEAF is a UK import to our sunny isle of Barbados (http://www.barbados.org) in the Caribbean. I have done 160 km before on a full charge, but now here's the evidence. Gotta try for that 200 km club - it's very possible.

Image

This was all done on one day starting from yesterday morning at 8:00 AM until I got back come around 5:00 AM this morning. It was a sunny day averaging 28 C (82 F) with a variable 28 km/h breeze. Saturday is usually the errand day and boy was it a long one with classes for the children, grocery shopping for the grandparents and topping off the night with a tennis match event just to name a few.

Since Barbados is a little rock about 23 km x 32 km at its widest point with a dense road network, the drive consisted of a mix of city and h'way driving. There are no mountains or steep hills in Barbados, the highest point is 353 metres (1151 ft.) above sea level. Our topography is one of gentle terrace rises and descents. According to the VID, the average speed was 35.2 km/h (21.8 mph). You really can't drive too far without being impacted by traffic. I think it is this constant stop and go and cycling power on/off that would make it really challenging to get to that 200 km clocker. Just to illustrate, the car was cycled on/off 14 times during the day. Although there was a post about this with the general consensus that it does not subtract from your range, I am not convinced. My experience is that every power on/off cycle subtracts at least 2 km of range. I suspect, however, that if I were to test the range with one drive from full to turtle the 200 km would be possible.

On the final journey home I got LBW at 143 km (89 miles), VLBW at 164km (102 miles) and turtle popped up at 183 km (114 miles).

Don't get me started on the last pic!!! :x :x :x Why is the UK/European LEAF the only region to have this stupid arse kWh/km display?? It's beyond me! Even the JDM LEAF has the energy economy display in km/kWh. At the next service update I am going to ask the technicians to change it if they can.

Finally, I am not is possession of any in-car monitoring devices as yet, the figures on this run were as follows:

Energy Economy Display (estimated): 0.110 kWh/km = 9.0 km/kWh (5.6 miles/kWh)
Calculated energy economy: 8.00 km/kWh (4.97 miles/kWh)

I make a motion that we keep the club open beyond 100 members for the first female who makes the mark (assuming that none do in the next 24).

We will then have (at most) 101 members.

Maybe we should recruit a female?
