I truly do not understand your posts... Are you asking for, or giving advice? Did you have a few beers?

See viewtopic.php?f=27&t=27567&start=90#p547042 and before.

The first 10 topics are reserved for discussion of what you need to know before you buy or lease a LEAF (or other electric vehicle).

Suggesting that someone rely on employer charging is not a good idea.

Also the 66% range calc should be lower due to lesser regen that 24/30 kwh cars are showing. I suspect the 40 kwh will exhibit the same but to a much lesser degree (regen profile starts at a much higher level) with 62 kwh LEAF not having the issue at all due to greater # of cells.

I've changed the wording. Depends on the employer, to a large degree...

Yes, but Lefty is a moderator. His version will be official.

Nope. Whatever Ultimate Site Administration there is here, I don't represent it. I'm not sure that I've ever even communicated with it. Go ahead and do your version and post it. I just knew that it would be like herding cats to write one collaboratively here.

Excellent start. When flushed out, this would make an excellent 'sticky' topic that always appears at the top of the forum.

I'm going to do just a small handful of stickies. Each will be for a category of posts, and will contain links to several topics on a similar theme. These two will both go in the sticky for buying guides.
