Mark; so glad to hear about a AZ'er who is happy with their LEAF. how many miles on the new pack? any stats on it like ahr or Hx available?

Dave I love the car ...... I have about 5000 miles on the new pack with about 3% loss of capacity after that grueling hot summer .......Im trying to time it so I get one more new pack before the warranty goes out on it ......

This is straight from Carwings, so I assume it's just what the car used, and what I drew from the wall (or the EVSE at work) would be a few percent higher.

Ok for real usage you need to calculate charging efficiency to determine power from the wall at the very least

June 30 I hit 5.9mi/kWh. Comes out to 200.1 MPGe. Oh yeah! 32.7mi in 1.4 hours.

Otherwise, I seem to be averaging 4.8mi/kWh over the long runs.

I'm not sure about all trim levels, but on my SL, I have the mi/kWh on the dash and console. Both can be reset independently.

For historical or anything other than current, you would have to record it manually. Carwings is currently the only way.

Well summer is not over yet. 3% so far, is good. If you lose no more than 5% end of this summer, then I think this pack has performed better than the earlier one. But again the 2nd summer is where the battery really takes a hit (anecdotally) and we will have where you are 2016 October

In addition to recording/resetting the mileage efficiency meter on the dash, you can track your electricity usage from the wall with a refurb utility meter:

Dividing the miles traveled by the kWh used gives miles/kWh as measured "from the wall", which includes such things as charging losses and preheating.
