20 miles roundtrip on a charge will be no prob for a long while. It'll take quite a while before a Leaf is useless for that w/a "lizard" battery, one supposedly more heat resistant that began with model year 2015. Your climate is definitely on the warmer side and degradation will likely be MUCH worse than those in say the Seattle or Portland area.

Level 2 in the US generally means J1772 at 208 to 240 volts, typically at 16 to 30 amps or so. http://www.sae.org/smartgrid/chargingprimer.pdf
may help. PEV probably implies plug-in electric vehicle. Most public L2 charging in the US tends to be capable of 30 amps max.
to find stations near you. You'll want to go to more options and uncheck all plug types except EV Plug (J1772). If you get/care about Leaf w/the quick charge (aka DC fast charge) inlet, the bigger port (CHAdeMO) on the left side, you'll want to include CHAdeMO DC FC.viewtopic.php?p=433513#p433513
has a pic of my car WITHOUT CHAdeMO inlet and pointer at the end of my reply to a car WITH CHAdeMO.

Keep in mind Nissan's CPO warranty doesn't extend the battery capacity warranty which is 5 years/60K miles on 24 kWh cars and 8 years/100K miles on 30 kWh. If you're down to 8 capacity bars out of 12 before the capacity warranty has expired, you're eligible for free replacement.
These wholesale (auction) prices may be food for thought: viewtopic.php?f=23&t=21244&start=10viewtopic.php?p=489054#p489054
FWIW, when I was in the market, I found Nissan-franchise dealers had pretty big markups on used Leafs.
BTW, if you're curious, https://owners.nissanusa.com/nowners/na ... nualsGuide
will let you d/l the warranty booklets.
