So what! I couldn't care less about a trivial discussion on "Remaining Bars":
Then do not participate in that part of the discussion, and certainly do not provide wrong data. You have @DaveinOly running off on a tangent now that LeafSpy is unreliable and maybe the LEAF battery is not so bio-degradable as trolls like me assert. So where are we with your battery ? Well, about 20% degradation after ~ 4 years. Right on track to have a hobbled battery after the warranty expires. Nissan thanks you for your business, and looks forward to selling you another 7 year wonder-car.
I agree with the remainder of your post, and am happy to read your example of a shallower degradation rate these last two years. Gerry in AZ reported the same degradation slope from new to 7 (or was it less ?) bars.
I feel I must correct the misinformation you are reporting about my cars. My 2015 is almost 32 months old with 47,699 miles and still has 11 capacity bars. The 2011 was still at 11 bars on the replacement battery at 50,422 miles and 42 months after the original battery was replaced at 8 bars (28 months and about 30,000 miles). Therefore, I lost a total of 5 bars on the 2011 and 1 bar so far on the 2015 in a little over 98,000 total miles. It is disappointing to hear of 4 bars lost on several 30 kWh batteries with very low mileage.
If I'm wrong, I appreciate the correction.
My memory was of your 2011 model, and my post referred to your Ahr loss per distance. Not fast or slow, but constant. Correct me if wrong.
