My battery management software has not been updated as far as I know and still is very flaky. Range at 100% SOC normally is around 70-72 miles. This morning at 100% charge the reported best guess range was 95 miles. In the first 10.5 driving miles today the range estimator had dropped from 95 to 65 miles. Yesterday the meters was more more linear. This happened a couple weeks ago with the same drop like a rock actual results. Does anyone know the variables the computer is using to get these wild swings of the GOM?
Now I know turtle mode reduces power to motor in a major way. I kept driving after I hit 7 GID's up and down the steep hill to my house. At WOT up the hill on the last run it was like the car had died but it went back to pulling when the speed dropped to about 30 MPH and the Leaf Spy Pro reported 5 GID's at that time.
Total range at a reported 72 mile range and the 95 mile range estimate was 60 actual miles with the same electrical load for comfort in winter driving. While it is recharging now yesterday I used 20.5 kwh of at 240 volts drawing 26 kw max to get back to 100% SOC reading.
SOH starts out at 64.5% when SOC is at 100% and GID's report being at about 65% at the same time.
While there was no regen in reverse I saw greater Regen values in D than in B mode. In B mode I never saw more than 30 kv even braking hard. At about the same speed and braking pressure I did see 40 kv o Regen in D mode however. Those values from Leaf Spy Pro surprised me. B mode does give a more single pedal driving feel and I try to drive without using the service brakes as much as possible like in the straight shift days.
I want to next try some DC charging at Walmart. Some have reported gaining a bar after using the DC charging port option. Since a 60 mile actual range works OK for our needs at this time I am very happy with this 2016 Leaf SL. If range does not change I plan to go for the software update that is go give back the full 107 miles expected range if the battery is actually healthy.
I found this video helpful in that he used about 22 kWh to add a range of 91 miles.
