Because I'm a bit confused, who received, and who did not recieve LeafBox, please write me to priv, if not received. I will check all sendings, maybe our secretary did a mistake or so.
BTW, Update 1.1
[added] even a bit better regen in D-mode, Better characteristics for 2011-12 (Gen1) Leaf.
[fixed] stepness with power at D-mode in program nr 3, and 4 - corrected.
I have now second delivery of plugs for Nissan Leaf, so all delayed orders (and unsend test boxes, if any) will be send almost immediately. We sit day and night at production of wiring cables. All boxes sent from today have update 1.1 installed (no need to update).
Thank you all, who sent me LeafSpy logs and spend generally a lot of time driving Leafs with LeafBox and collecting information for me. Thank you for ideas - I try to add all, that are possible.
Results until now:
It seems that it is absolutely fair to say, that LeafBox extends range by 10%. There are some better results, even one guy, who drives few Leafs in Uber reported, that that one with LeafBox is 20% better in range than others, but I think that he personally drives that one Leaf and is a better driver than other hired drivers (it is my theory, I havent directly asked) so I do not rely on this one report. It sounds like miracle.
Back to Earth - people, who drive in cities have better results (10-15%), people who drive mostly highways have improvement only, when they drive in cities or slower speeds (sounds logical, as power needed to maintain constant speed at highway does not change with LeafBox, so car should use exact same amount of energy).
Compiling information from all LeafSpy logs, it looks like 60% of savings comes from gliding/coasting, next 30% from alternative power demand, and maybe 10% from extended regen (mainly - faster start of full regen).
Among testers we have found one issue - it was not possible to unplug the factory plug from Acc pedal. It was probably glued or so (in factory?).
Have anybody seen such situation, that plug (any) in the car was glued?
I plan do explain also a bit more about that, how it is possible to go over 80kW limit (by poor 3kW, but still better than factory power, this functionality is NOT ENABLED yet) and how it is possible to invoke higher regen (again about 3kW better regen, as it bases on the same trick - exploit of factory PID_R algorythm for power demand stabilization). Maybe this will be boring for most of you, but for some it will be interesting. For me personally this exploit is a well known trick, because I have observed it in many ECUs of gasoline cars years ago, while working at reverse engineering them (as Im car tuner, all in all). I checked that in Leaf just for fun, believing in maybe 5% of chance, that this will work - and tadaaam - it works. Also for regen. I will prepare some pictures (graphs) to explain that better.
Alcohol won't solve your problems. On the other hand, milk won't solve them either...
