First of all, where are we going to find 3 new LEAFs off the dealer lot to use as control cars?Volusiano wrote:Below is what you proposed for the test in the other thread. I see a number of issues with it.
We will use what we can get, and that might be any owner's new-ish car that can charge to 100% with 275 Gid or greater.
Secondly, you want to drive the suspect car 5 times for the whole length of 70 miles each time.
Obviously, not going to happen with the car that gets turned in that day. The best we can do is more cars at one single run per car.
Thirdly, in order for the test to have some kind of legitimacy, there has to be an independent 3rd party
Yes, as I stated and agree. We aren't going to get it done that way. So, your suggestion of media is great, but I suggest we invite the "industry" press to observe and report.
Fourthly, it'll take time to organize
Yes, indeed. Lets call this Saturday a practice run for the "real thing". That doesn't mean a less than serious test, and we will learn a lot from it. The number one issue for me is testing Scott's car, and comparing that to a control car. Secondarily, would be a bunch of 2, 3, and 4? bar losers.
Each car to yield an end results in number of miles, that means that the end reference has to be LBW or VLBW or something like that, right?
I recommend all the way to turtle. We can tow the cars with Nissan free towing right back to the dealer or chargers where we started. We will calculate for each car how far outbound they should go before returning. That means they will be very close when they hit turtle. If it does not go to turtle, I guarantee every stooge for Nissan will say the car could have gone 20 more miles.
