Feel free to post them now. The test does not require exactly 20%, any more than it requires exactly 80%

49.3 miles driven

During this test you consumed
49.3 miles / 4.9 miles/kWh = 10.06 kWh and you used 60% of your battery capacity
So the full battery capacity would be
10.06/0.6 = 16.77 kWh **
Interp: I'd do a couple more tests to be sure, but based on this test the 12th bar should drop any day now

Are you able to recharge at a station that reports energy delivered ?
It would be nice to confirm the results of this first test

Two key assumptions here:
The miles/kWh meter was reset at the beginning of the test and not reset thereafter
No additional recharges during the test

And then that's taken and times the kWh used we arrive at 16.77 kWh capacity on a supposedly 24 kWh battery (21 available when it's new) which leads to my second bolded.....NOT good.

Yes, the 0.6 is the 60% SoC used
And the the kWh used divided by
the SoC used gives the total battery capacity.
To see why the arithmetic works this way, imagine you first want to know how many kWh you have in ONe percent:
That would be 10.06 kwh / 60 = 0.167 kWh
Then 100% SoC is 0.167 * 100 = 16.7 kWh
Recharging at a place that reports kWh from the meter is a good idea.
Your other choice is to buy an OBDII adapter. If LeafSpy agrees with 16.7 kWh you have a reliable answer. If not, then more testing is in order.
Sorry I could not be the bearer of better news but it is not terrible. At 4.9 miles a kWh you have a total range of 4.9*16.7 = ~ 80 miles, or figure 70 miles with a little security. The tougher question is how quickly the battery will degrade in Tuscon.
I wish you well, however you decide
