This looks like it could be a nice service and I will likely send you my data soon. I have data since the day I bought the car new and use Leaf Spy almost every time I drive the car. Here are things I think would make your site more useful - but requiring a bit more programming.
1. I think I'm fine providing you a vin number with the data (I don't have it save location data so its not there anyway). But I think the site would would be more useful (and get fewer pushbacks) if you set up a system where we (or you) could create accounts where we have our mynissanleaf usernames that we provide and you tie to vins so that we can get data by the already public user name that we use rather than vin. We upload vins in the file (as that's what's there) but you don't make that part public.
2. create a cgi that will allow users to pull a brief (one line) summary of our data that we can add to our signature line on MyNissanLeaf.com or other websites where we want to display it. Maybe Year, total miles, SOH , and 30 day loss rate. Of course you would want it to include a tiny link to your site to encourage more signups. This line would then be generated from the most recent uploaded data - which the way you have it set up could be completely automated.
3. There are plenty of publicly available graphics routines available for php to plot data to a jpg that gets loaded when we look up a page, but I assume that's on your radar. If I just wanted to see a table of my data, Leaf Spy has very nice one built in.
That's a start
