Re: One Year of ownership - 37,750 miles

Fri Aug 03, 2012 3:12 pm

Well, you beat me to it - was going to wait until I got to 50K. I am actually at 47K.

So here is the quick and dirty - battery - all bars still showing. I have lost 8-10% of my range - 10 bars gone when new was around 66 miles at normal commute pattern. Now it is 59-61.

I might be a member of the QC conspiracy camp. Since my last report, I have used it about 8 times (not sure how exact #) but only once a day each time. I was having a feeling that my range was dropping as I was doing this. I know that 10% loss is expected at 50K miles and I'm almost there, but the quick drop over last 10K miles is why I think the use of QC plays a role.

Generally, I used to multiply my miles/Kwh by 1.5 to confirm I was on track with the bars used - 21kwh/12 bars is more than 1.5 so I figured that was a safe guesstimate. Today, in slower than normal traffic, at the end of my commute, I averaged 5.2miles/kwh yet my 10th bar dropped out at 61 miles. I would have expected 10 bars to go closer to 70 if not more.

When I leave work, the first bar still drops out at 5.4miles as it has for some time. I am a bit apprehensive about what the winter will bring but I know there is a QC more or less on the way. That could become a vicious pattern.

So there you go. I will see about borrowing the meter again when I actually get to 50K and post an update - should be end of this month.

Actually, I guessed your mileage at 47k initially, but figure to over inflate my guesstimate :) Glad to see it's holding up well for you! Did you have any service done?

TaylorSF; you have used the QC a few times. when you did, to what SOC did you charge and how hot did you get? I have only charged beyond 80% twice but charged to 60-65% about 18 times. i never saw more than 6 TBs (temperature bars) and my last two checks on SOC were at 275 or 98%.

i am charging to 100% for next few days to see if the numbers stay consistent

I went until it stopped and turned off - needed to drive more than 50 miles so I made sure I went to 9 or 10 bars. I don't recall the actual percentage. When I left Shelton I was at 6 on the heat scale. After charging on QC at Tumwater, WA it moved to 7.

Dave, if you want to get together, PM me - I drive through Olympia every day.

ya, we can do that. drink some Java and watch your LEAF suck some juice. so you are seeing the 7 TBs? ya, i am thinking that is the point at which the degradation curve starts getting steep.

this morning, i am at 275 GID (98% SOC) for 3rd day in a row so kinda looking like any balancing to be done has been done. it will be 90 today and tomorrow so we shall see how it reacts in warm weather and cold. still no more than 6 TBs for me

Steve,
Have you an Ah capacity reading for your battery? My analysis of data from Washington shows a strong correlation between ODO miles and Ah capacity. So if you can post the mileage and Ah capacity of your LEAF, that would be very interesting. If you don't have a recent reading, any reading of Ah at high mileage would be interesting. For my plot, the SOC does not matter. My guess is that you have about 45 Ah capacity, if my linear plot is correct.

Thanks
