When I purchased it I was told I would get around 106 city and 96 highway on eco and no climate control. When my car is "fully charged" the highest I have ever seen it get to is 63 miles. And by the time I even get out of the parking lot at work which is like 200 ft I have already lost a mile or two.
I have a 2012 leaf and I am located in Kansas City MO.
My main thing is I don't even get the estimated milage that is displayed on my dash.
Thanks for updating w/your model year. No, per https://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/Find.do ... 4&id=37067
, the EPA estimated range on a '12 Leaf on a full charge with a new battery (little or not capacity loss) is 73 miles. Ignore the stupid MPGe figures.
It is disturbing to hear of being lied to and also disturbing to continue to hear people buying used Leafs w/o having done proper research...
Your battery has anywhere between some to a lot of capacity loss. How many capacity bars is it down by? The capacity bars are the rightmost set of bars including the red ones. http://www.electricvehiclewiki.com/wp-c ... bars_s.jpg
is an example of a fully charged 9 bar car (3 bar loser).
The "estimate mileage" is total crap and we call it the guess-o-meter (GOM). There is no point in "figuring it out": viewtopic.php?p=271853#p271853
Since the '12 Leaf has no % state of charge display and only the GOM + 12 fuel bars, +100 in the suggestion to get Leaf Spy + a compatible OBD2 dongle for your phone OS. Gids are FAR more granular (281 on a new 24 kWh battery on a full charge) than the stupid 12 fuel bars and you'll still have visibility once you pass VLBW (aka Very Low Battery Warning, 2nd warning) where the GOM becomes - - - miles.

Simpler than that -- s(he) needs a SoC meter
They will need to use Leaf Spy or some other similar tool since the 1% increment SoC display didn't exist on Leafs before model year '13. They only have the 12 fuel bars + GOM. Long ago, people also tried to infer/have a more granular than 12 fuel bars SoC indication by looking at the time to charge estimate: viewtopic.php?t=7079
Prior to Leaf Spy, people were building the original gid meter: https://saxton.org/tom_saxton/2012/01/l ... build.html
. And prior to Leaf Spy existing, the Leaf Spy author was building https://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?t=8527
. I met Turbo3 + surfingslovak at Turbo3's house before surfingslovak flew to Phoenix to help w/TonyWilliams's range test: https://web.archive.org/web/20160113132 ... p?p=228326
. He was bringing some equipment (e.g. gid meters like WattsLeft, GPS units, etc.) for the test.
