I usually get around 5.5. My commute is very stop and go on surface streets. In the winter that drops a bit--around 4.9 IIRC.

My 2012 seems to have narrow parameters. During this summer (I bought used about a month ago) I average 4.4-4.5 when I drive it like any other car (highway speeds, AC, mix of D and Eco). I average 4.7-4.8 when I drive at lower speeds, no AC, all Eco, moderate acceleration, etc. Whether I drive it like a reckless teen or a little old lady, I cannot seem to maintain an average outside the 4.4-4.8 range, and normally it is 4.6-4.7. We will see what winter brings, but since it lives in a garage I'm a bit hopeful.

I've never reset my meter from day 1. I'm at 4.3. About 90% of my driving is in the city on relatively flat terrain. I always drive in "B" mode.

Have you tried driving in D mode? I have 2015 S model and I am getting about 7.5km (around 4.66 miles) with 80% highway and 20% city driving. I believe with mostly city, you should get better, no?

My overall average is 4.8 since I bought the LEAF in February. On my normal drive to work (a little more than 15 miles at 40-45 mph on gently-rolling semi-rural roads) I get between 5 and 5.3 but on the weekends when I drive different routes, my overall average drops to under 5.

Averaging 4.6 on mostly local roads - I try to maintain 3 bubbles or less while driving.

I can't imagine how I would get better range in D mode. I use the B mode to decelerate and regain as much power as possible. I accelerate at 4-5 "bubbles" typically. If I really cared so much, I would accelerate at 2-3 bubbles (and piss off the people behind me). ;)
