Mine is still too new for me to tell but I was reading other posts and lots use the cruise control. I have a Mercury Mariner Hybrid and I use a Prius at work and both of those I get better mileage when I don't use the cruise control. is this not the same with the LEaf?
2012 Silver Leaf SL Premium Package 20,200 miles

2011 Toyota Tundra V-8 4X4 260,000 miles (was my daily driver)

2009 Mercury Mariner Hybrid 95,000 miles (wifes car)

We purchased it with the intent of driving it from home to the office which is 27 miles away from the house. For the first 10 miles it is 70 mph and then much slower due to traffic. The entire drive takes about an hour over all. When she would arrive it has just enough range to go about 7 miles to a charging station at a Nissan dealership. She would then charge for 30 min and get home with about 14 miles of range. Plug it up for the night to do it all over again the next day. We finally gave up and purchased her another car and I drive the leaf 2.3 miles to work and then back. Unless there is a known working charging station I wont drive it more than 20 miles away from my house.

Well in the next few days if all goes right the leaf will be gone and replaced with either a Volt or a C-Max Plug in.

Work is 30 miles away from home. I have commuted in my Leaf for > 3.5 years. I've never had to charge midway and I'm pretty sure I got the lizard batteries as I just lost my first bar at > 61K.

I work by the beach in SoCal so the conditions for travel are relatively optimal though.
