"69% more" is high in my mind, but you are parking outside so the battery end up being cold soaked. Preheating the interior doesn't help that. So the trickle charger doesn't supply enough energy to run the preheater, so you are actually using up some battery power while doing that.

If you notice in my original post I mentioned a 2019 leaf s. It has a resistance heater.LeftieBiker wrote: ↑Fri Nov 08, 2019 12:28 pmColoradoman needs to update his profile signature to show what he drives. Or at least tell us! I suspect it's a Leaf with resistance heat only - an S or a Gen I Leaf, or 2018+ SV without the All Weather Package that was sold where it shouldn't have been sold.
I mentioned I use 69% more power. When I left this morning it said I had 77 miles of range. When I arrived from my 27.5 mile commute it said I have 31 miles of range left, just barely enough to make it back home. The 19 more miles used than what was predicted represents a 69% more that what it should have been.jjeff wrote: ↑Fri Nov 08, 2019 12:08 pmA 69% reduction does seem rather extreme, I could see 69% of your summer range(31% reduction) but even in the single digits, driving through several inches of snow and a strong blizzard headwind, I only saw about a 50% reduction in my range(from a normal 70 miles to what I'd estimate a 35 mile range with a 24kWh Leaf.
Even in stop and go traffic where you'd use more heat due to a longer commute, you should come out about the same as with such slow driving your Leaf should be more efficient than going 70mph for the same distance.
Don't get me wrong, you'll see a reduction in range but anything more than 50% just doesn't make sense
