Thanks again!
You're welcome! I've been in the middle east for the past couple months, and the only electric car that I've seen is one Tesla Model S.

You're going to really love the range in the summer. Good luck with your 100 Mile Club entry.

On the first run we got 68.9 miles at 3.1 m/kwhr = 22.2 kwhr

On the second distance run we got 126.0 miles at 5.8 m/kwhr = 21.7 kwhr

From the above it appears that even though we only get 265 gids with full charge we still get full battery use. Could it be that the gids in our Leaf's (those with 260 gids rather than 284 gids) have more than 80 watts?
Graffi,

No, it doesn't have more than 80 watthours per Gid, but the calibration isn't quite right. We have seen this on all year LEAF's, not just the 2013 models.

Congrats on your feat. It's been quiet in the Club this winter, but hopefully things will pick up this summer. As you are well aware, the torch has been passed to you so make our Club proud. I'm hoping we can schedule our next spring mixer with the American Petroleum Institute convention and turn them all into rabid electric car aficionados.

I keep leaving mobile phone at the Club, so don't get any ideas about using it to call 1-900 numbers. See ya soon,

Warmer spring temperatures, (both battery and ambient) have resulted in the return of easy 100+ mile range on ~ the same mountainous route (requiring ~6,000 ft total ascent and descent) I've used for my range/capacity tests since new.

http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 4&start=30" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

18 total 100+ odometer mile trips in my LEAF since new, and four more 100+ mile trips out of the 11 total since my last report on 9/1/13 on p 67.

All reports are of odometer miles and dash/nav screen/CarWings kWh use reports, from "100%" to ~VLBW.

Only the 10/6 and 10/26 tests below were controlled for all factors. I wanted a lower ambient/battery temperature, higher tire pressure, and slightly more efficient speed profile and route, than the test standards I have used since shortly after I got my LEAF.

9/14/13

15.5 kWh, 112.6 miles.

10/6/13

15.1 kWh, 100.0 miles. (new speed/route/tire pressure standard, 48PSI @ ~70F, 90 min out/87 min return to May Hollow junction)

10/19/13

16.2 kWh, 99.5 miles (segmented trip kWh use test, 2.7 dash/NS/CW kWh available from LBW to VLBW).

10/26/13

15.3 kWh 103.0 miles. (NSRTP standard re-test)

11/28/13

15.3 kWh, 95.3 miles

12/22/13

14.7 kWh, 92.9 miles.

12/29/13

15.1 kWh, 97.9 miles

1/18/14

14.6 kWh, 93.7 miles.

1/25/14

15.1 kWh, 99.5 miles.

2/22/14

14.7 kWh, 98.0 miles.

4/12/14

15.2 kWh, 105.4 miles.

The results posted recently from AVTA:

http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 1&start=20" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Go a long way to explaining why warm climate LEAFs such as mine experience relatively slow loss of available capacity (and in my LEAF's case, no lose of range at all, after over three years and 26k miles).

As you can see from the AVTA data, only very high battery temperatures (exacerbated in the AVTA test, to an unknown extent, by extreme cycling of SOC) seems to cause rapid loss of total battery capacity.

First time picture was taken at night and the flash washed out the data and I had already recharged.

It's my turn. Tested the limit of my 2013 Leaf S this morning. I was targeting around 160km, but I get a little further. I drove to around 50% then turn back. Back at home, I was at 167km with still 2 bar. I ate breakfast then I just drove around until I got the turtle. For a total of 204.6km (127.875 miles) and an average of 9.5km (5.9 miles) / kWh.

Awesome! You are now number 78 in the 100 Mile Club, with a special notation of number 11 in the 200km Club. You are hereby bequeathed with all the rights and privileges of the 100 Mile Club, and shall henceforth and forever remain Mr. 78.

I do hope you'll accept this appointment and wear your Club jacket with pride. Some members, in an apparent act of disobedience, have affixed their membership number on their jackets either in reverse or upside down (or both). I hope you'll not be swayed to follow them, thus avoiding any censor of this honorable institution.

Welcome aboard,

That's already been done. Read the first post.
