Can anyone tell me how much this has increased their range? I have a 2013 Leaf and I am currently getting about 4.6 miles per kwh on a new battery that I got last week.
The most recent reporting was by @GetOffYourGas a couple pages earlier in this (very long) thread. Here's what he reported:
We've continued to improve the software since the test units were released and recently began incorporating five driving modes. Because there is so much variation in drivers, vehicles, and terrain, we tend to be slightly conservative in our claims, but I feel safe stating that most drivers see a 5-8% gain in range—and some even more.GetOffYourGas wrote: Sorry I didn't post my results sooner. I wanted to follow my testing with a few hundred miles of driving without the PedalLogic unit so I could control my usage to be as similar as possible.
The unit has three modes, each progressively more aggressive. Here are my numbers after 800+ miles in each mode:
baseline (no PedalLogic) - 3.3 miles / kWh
Mode 1 - 3.5 miles/kWh
Mode 2 - 3.4 miles/kWh
Mode 3 - 3.7 miles/kWh
All modes performed better than stock. Mode 3 saw about a 12% improvement from stock (the quote above was relative to Mode 2, which was the least efficient mode, but still better than stock). My driving was as consistent as possible through each mode's test. Temperatures were similar and I always had the climate running with slight A/C (never heat). The efficiency numbers settled into a very consistent value, which gave me a high confidence in them.
I also found that the unit made it easier to drive efficiently when desired. It definitely works as advertised, smoothing out the bumps.
