This is an update from Scott Jarosh on viewing Carwings while his car was in Casa Grande.

I noticed that on the Forum, PG249 "RegGuheert" asked if anyone watched check Carwings while their car was in Casa Grande. I check mine 3 or 4 time daily. It didn't tell me much. Most of the time, Carwings could not connect to my Leaf. I do know that they discharged my batteries to 8% at least once, did several 10 min or less charges, and charged to 60% most of the time. At not time did my charge status ever "Jump" up it always increased slowly as by standard charging.

I included some Carwings Screenshots for you and the Forum. I dropped my car off on July 23rd 7:00 AM with 4 miles less than 100% charge. I picked it up on 9:30 AM Aug 8th with 100% charge.

My current range with 1 bar missing info.(trip A) My normal driving 50% mix 55mph loop and 35mph city all with A/C its 100F in TX . 100% charge , drove 48.1 miles down to LBW 6 miles showing on GOM and 1 flashing bar. 3.8Kwh on meter. This is the shortest range I have ever seen even when driving like I didnt care about the range. Shortest range in june was like 56 miles and 8 on GOM. I will cont to track but now its official for me, a very notable drop and I will not be able to do some driving as before in 1 day without a charge.

(trip B) today, another full charge and drive with more constant values. short 55mph trip 8 miles, then 32 miles at 65mph total trip 40 miles, 3.8Kwh , Had 14 miles on GOM and 3 bars left. seems like it would have been about the same as trip A overall. New limited range is 50 miles if I want to make it back home without Turtle mode.

I've always said the easiest job in the world is being the weather-woman in San Diego! :D

You have an air conditioner, Tony? Maybe you're farther from the beach than I am (west side of I-15). I know you guys in AZ won't think this is funny----but I had to run my bedroom ceiling fan last night for a couple hrs. ;) :D

I can get by just fine without AC, but with 8kW of solar, why not? We're on the top of the hill, and get a perfect coastal breeze right through my house. Our Tierrasanta house never ran the AC once. My Oxnard beach house didn't have AC or heater !!!!
