Due to a sick child, I called out of work today and forgot my leaf was timed to charge to 100% this morning. It stayed at 100% until about 8pm (Doh!). When I went to get dinner, I realized what I had done and decided to bring the battery down to something reasonable to sit overnight at. With family waiting, I figured the quickest way to bleed off charge was to hop on the freeway. The roadway was relatively empty, so I had plenty of space and empty lanes for my speed run and got it up to 85mph pretty quickly. Didn't maintain it at that speed very long, but quickly realized how quiet an EV is at those higher speeds when all you hear is the wind. Needless to say, I didn't stay at that speed very long and settled in to 70mph until I drained off 10%, then exited and returned back towards home.
Just wondering if anyone has a speed record in the Leaf around here (not advocating reckless driving, just curious).
