Leaffan, I will send you a Private Message with my e-mail address and phone number in case you are interested in continuing this conversation. I agree, you will be able to get a blue AF plate for the Leaf, but not HOV lane privileges. (My opinion from what I have researched) The AF plates (with the sticker in the middle) that were issued to some CNG or to some Hybrids were part of HOV privilege programs to encourage early adoption of the technologies and can not be transferred to a Leaf. These programs were intended for limited quantities of applicants and for limited qualifying vehicles.
You're confusing the two types. I do not nor never had a 'sticker/decal' for my cng Honda Civic GX. It is an AF plate, period, and isn't related to that other category of hybrids and bi-fuel cars. They stopped both of those programs and plates. It's category is 'Alternative Fuel/Dedicated' cars and a BEV is in this category also. Anyone that is issued an AF plate like mine (no decal) can go in the HOV by themselves anytime, any day. I hope this clears it up for you.
