This is in north dallas, with a relatively flat land. Dont have the exact elevation statistics as I mainly drive around for work. I do about 50-60 miles every day and started yesterday, and timed it such that I ended up at the QC station.

did about 5.9 miles/kwh
15% charge left
average speed 21.9 mph

How do I upload pictures ?
Is there a spot left in the first 100 ?

I do hope you'll accept this appointment without a full legal review by one of your staff lawyers.

Finally did it. 100 miles on one charge, over about 5 days (we don't drive much). Here are a few pictures. First 20 were local, then 35 miles downtown and back in slow traffic, then 25 more miles local, finally last 20 miles on the freeway, as I had lots of wiggle room. Mix of day and night driving, many miles in the rain.

Started at 258 gids, and ended at 42 gids. I maybe could have babied it to 120 miles, but didn't have the time tonight.

Some interesting contests I think would be: 1. minimum used GIDS to 50 or 100 miles. 2. Fastest average speed for 100 miles (I think 55+ is achievable) 3. Beat Leaffan and achieve 200 miles.

One more item off of the bucket list...but that sounds rather geeky.

What I thought would be fun is a 300 mile race level 2 charging only. Charging limited to 3 kw to level the playing field. Drivers can chooze routes, charging locations, and speed to optimize travel time. Legal speed limit or slower. To make it even more sporting, everyone leaves at the same time, and the first one to the destination wins.

I purchased my bran-new 2014 Leaf in April and soon after I setup Leaf Spy Pro on a cheap android phone. To my great disappointment the battery was already 8% down on capacity (reporting 92% SOH). I keep my cars a long time so I'm planning on babying the battery (keep battery cool, charge to about 90%, don't go down to turtle...) so this was extremely disappointing to me. Anyway, I read on the forum that draining the battery down to turtle and then charging to 100% may "recalibrate" the battery so last Tuesday I drove it until I saw the turtle. I then charged it overnight to 100% and figured, what the heck, let's try to join the 100 miles club.

First day started out great, weather was nice, not too warm, no need for A/C. Going to work and back I averaged 8.8 km/kWh not holding up any traffic. That evening my wife went out with her friend and it was pouring rain. She used the defrost the whole time and therefore brought the average economy down to 8.0 km/kWh. The next morning was still miserable and driving into work all I could do is bring the avg. economy up to 8.1 km/kWh so I was starting to think I wouldn't make it to 161 km. The weather on the way back was a little better so avg. economy crept back up to 8.3. In the evening we went to do some shopping and came home on LBW and about 152 km. After putting the kids to sleep I told my wife I was going for a drive. After about 10 minutes of driving around I was at 159 and heading home. Drove into the driveway with one bar left (---%) and switched my odometer to miles to see 100.4 miles traveled. I don't remember exactly but I think I had about 15 gids left, 8.4 km/kWh average.

In case you're wondering, no the capacity did not change, I still only have 92% SOH. As I only have about 20 kWh of capacity I won't even bother trying for 200 kms. I'd need to average 10 km/kWh and the best I've average for any significant distance is 9. I sure hope my battery degradation will be slower than "normal" cause my new car is already half way to loosing a capacity bar - sucks. :cry:

At least being indoctrinated into the 100 mile club should cheer me up a little. ;)

Mr. muus,

You are hereby bequeathed with all the rights and privileges of the 100 Mile Club, and shall henceforth and forever more be and remain Mr. 85.

Only 15 spots remain, so I think you got in at a good time. Once all the LEAF can pull into Tesla Supercharger stations with 60kWh batteries, we will be flooded with requests to join !!!

Thank you drees, I will read this thread attentively and contribute my observations if it can help. Being in the 100 mile club is cool, but I want to be in the "10 Year Old Leaf With Original Battery" club.

+1

And hopefully we will be able to purchase replacement batteries sometime after that point!
