Re: 62kwh Leaf Plus Efficiency Posting

Must be nice to have those long stretches of constant speed to test on. FYI; I have been looking at the GOM verses LEAF Spy and found some interesting "issues." *commenting on post in T3 thread*

On my relatively short commutes 27.9 or 28.0 RT for work, I was seeing what appears to be the GOM not rounding up.

dash/LS
4.6/4.67
4.7/4.73
4.5/4.58
4.8/4.84

I was participating in a trial at Fred Hutch, so tracked that and got a completely different reading over 126.3 miles

5.0/4.88

Haven't looked into why this happened but some data points; My commute is generally 60-70 in the morning, 65-75 in the evening 2/3rds freeway. It is a constant up and down. My higher speeds are simply playing the gravity game (BTW...it seems to be the rule of law in this area of I-5) so guessing the Seattle trip numbers have to do with what is likely a MUCH larger regen figure. I do check my regen values on my daily commute and see generally 2 miles (one way) with a rare 3. Morning trips see some congestion on 'incident free' days but rarely see any slow down in the evenings.

Fascinating that the largest discrepancy was on the longest run. .1 isn't that big of a difference, but mile rounding wouldn't explain it.

I chalk it up to traffic conditions. Will have to look at the logs but the Seattle trip was a constant speed up, slow down which means the regen value is HUGE. Guessing there is something going on when that is thrown into the mix. The work commutes are nearly regen free (freeway anyway) as I simply strive to "deadband" down the hills (zero power in or out)

Another month come and gone.

S+ 510 miles and 5.3 miles/kWh. It was 5.4 until this weekend when temps dropped to the 40s and I had a 70 mile trip on the freeway/fast highway. The kids did run AC a few days as well, so likely a tenth or two left on the table.

SV+ 475 miles and 4.8 miles/kWh.

We didn't have any long trips this month, so majority of the driving (75%) was local sub 50 mph driving.

The cars have been a pretty consistant .5 miles/kWh apart. May overall was fairly warm until the last 5 days when temps plummeted. They are coming back now, so June should be good efficiency wise, as it often is for the Leaf.

Also today ends my NCTC. I still have ql15 more days for my evgo $250 credit, but it was nice while it lasted. Now back to home charging and fully enjoying off peak electricity rates.
