they are really neat looking cars and are very nice - but I just can't justifying paying so much more for something that is slightly nicer, performs moderately nicer, yet less range, and a QC that we don't have here in DFW but have way more of the other type..

Anyways here is the updates for this week:

3 stations removed and 2 modified –

Removal:

Grapevine Train Depot (Blink)
Let’s Do Lunch (Blink)
“North 40” Parking Lot (Blink)

Modifications:
Garland Fire Admin Parking (Blink) – reduced stations from 3 to 2
Hollabaugh Rec Center (Blink) – reduced stations from 2 to 1

I'd happily take an i3 Rex over a Leaf. But I'm not willing to pay the extra to get one.

I just drove by there an hour ago. They actually have 3 of them. One in the front that is the Rex version, and 2 in the back that are BEV. Unfortunately, the place had closed an hour before due to holiday schedule so I couldn't do a test drive or anything. Interestingly enough, I couldn't find a charging station anywhere on the lot. However, I noticed they had several 120V outlets on poles out in the parking lots. Maybe they are keeping them charged up that way for now?

An interesting drive story.......

We drove our Leaf from Dallas to Denton (down I-35E) and back thru Little Elm (charged at the EvGo fast charge), up the Dallas North Tollway to downtown Dallas, up Central Expressway to Mockingbird & Greenville for a 2nd fast charge at the EvGo) and then to West Grapevine and back to Dallas............a total of over 186 miles!!! The a/c was on the entire trip.

Yeah, we had a problem with with the heat gauge for the battery which was just below the "red" mark. However, that was after 11 hours of almost non-stop driving with the air conditioning running from 9:30 a.m. until 8:45 p.m.

VERY pleased with our Leaf's performance.

Also, we had a "rush hour" at the EvGo fast charge on Belt Line and Montfort in Addison: we pulled up and another NEW white Leaf was using the slower charge and I took the fast charge. TWO white Leafs at one time!!!! I took a photo, but don't know how to upload it.

Also we have now determined that on the 2014 Leaf, the most "leaf trees" that you can plant are..............FOUR planted trees, and ONE full grown trees. That is the max! The Fifth tree won't "plant"...........

I LOVE MY LEAF!!!!

:lol: awesome that you reached your "tree limit." I don't recall anyone that has done that! I have driven quite a few miles in one day on my leaf, but I don't think I have every did that much. Kudos for the laps around the metroplex. I might have to try this again since my new battery range is awesome.

That beltline station definitely gets its use. There is a ford fusion energi that uses the level 2 quite often. I think he either works at the walgreens or just next door. The largest jam so far I have seen at that station is 3 at once, all trying to QC.
