Whew!

I did a LOT of fast highway driving in my 2013 Leaf then took an unnecessary highway loop (wrong exit!) and my displayed miles remaining on charge was zero or "---" coming home and it still got me another mile or so home off the highway exit home. Whew, never wanna do THAT again!

The triple dashes mean "can't give estimate" rather than "zero." Isn't there another topic recently created about running out of charge?

EDIT: Here it is:

2013 "Brilliant Silver" SV with Premium and no QC, a 2009 Vectrix VX-1 W/18 Leaf modules, and 3 EZIP E-bicycles.
PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

IIRC, the GOM goes to --- miles when you hit VLBW (2nd warning). What's more scary is without Leaf Spy having % SoC go from say 5 to 7% to ---%. This happened to me: viewtopic.php?p=388984#p388984.

https://www.edmunds.com/nissan/leaf/201 ... r-end.html in the video drove an '11 Leaf (doesn't have % SoC display) down to dead.

Bottom line: If you want visibility into what's going on and not fly blind when you get do ---% remaining, use Leaf Spy!

And why is that? Answer: Because Nissan, in their infinite wisdom, decided to take away telemetry information regarding the battery just when you need it the most.

I can only guess that lawyers were behind that awful decision.
