The bar dropped about one month before we turned it in. It was borderline (84-85%) for some time. The onset of cold weather--by Bakersfield standards--likely played a part.
As noted, we did not baby the car. We drove it like it was any other kind of car. And once, when I was late to pick up my wife flying in to LAX, I got battery temps into the red. That was when I decided to get Leaf Spy and see what the temps really were. That experience is related in Star-Crossed Trip: Bakersfield to LAX & Return
. That's likely posted here as well.
