Boy you’re touchy. :)

I wonder if your sentence “Have some references explaining why?” Is proper or not. Would that be considered a sentence fragment?
There's an implied you. (https://socratic.org/questions/what-is- ... ed-subject)

My point is everyone knows what someone means when they incorrectly state kW instead of kWh. There’s no need to constantly point out the error.
No, we can't always tell. What's the point of encouraging incorrect unit usage? People who don't know the difference should learn it.

How would you feel about a car "expert" who answered questions like this?
Q: How fast did you go?
A: 80 miles

Q: How far did you go?
A: 80 miles per hour

Q: How much fuel did you put in?
A: 11 gallons per minute

See example below of a total cluster%#$%4 when someone didn't know what the heck they were talking about:
http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 05#p565905

K-MTG who I quoted at https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads ... st-2470307 also didn't know what the heck he was talking about. He deleted his own post or something. We couldn't tell if he meant the power level got up to 50 kW or if 50 kWh was dispensed. He was also WAY off. The CHAdeMO adapter didn't work on the Model 3 until almost 2 years later.

There was this garbage involving nerys that I pointed to at http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 27#p566027.

Not at all consistent with miles in mine. I just sold a 2017 with 49k miles on it, 12 bars, no firmware update. I honestly think these cars like to be driven as long as you can keep the temperature in a good range.
WOW... and my wow is about driving 25k mi a year... with a Leaf.

Working weekday only would be 95.8mi /day

If you drive everyday that is 68.5mi /day.... still a lot for this car. well, I have the 24kW you have the 30kW

What was your charging schedule? 100% daily?
Did you charge multiple times a day? partially home, partially at work.


Do you care to share more details?
100 percent daily, sometimes charging again during the day (like when I commuted and then wanted to go back downtown on Friday nights), plus all weekend local driving. Infrequent DCFC while my free membership was active. I live in a beautiful exurb that requires 20 minutes to get anywhere, plus I like to drive, so it added up!
