I bet if you got back to stock your efficiency will stay the same LeafBox does have an added benefit of making you think more about your driving efficiency which makes you end up driving more efficiently. There is nothing LeafBox does that cannot be replicated with a completely stock Leaf, except maybe for the early 2011 and 2012 cars.wehey wrote:I guess it’s down to the individual and the way you drive.
I’m getting the same miles/kWh now, in November, than I was in August
It doesn’t sound like yours was set up or working right.VitaminJ wrote:I bought a LeafBox a few months ago but I decided to sell it recently. Basically it didn't give me any more range. Really I didn't notice the glide mode pedal dead zone to be any bigger than when using the factory programming nor did I like the linear throttle. Driving in regular mode felt horrible because even with the smallest foot movement the car would lurch forward. I drove in ECO the whole time because of that. In ECO the car is basically the same as stock, really I did not notice any difference. Maybe 3 or 4 more kw of regen when not using the brake pedal but otherwise no difference. I drove with it over several weeks just using LeafBox and then I started swapping between stock and LeafBox. Now I am 100% stock again and getting just as good of mi/kwh as usual and I can drive in normal D, which I prefer, and for me makes gliding easier. I live in Colorado and there is just tons of elevation change everywhere I drive so if it was going to help me it definitely should have. As usual, the biggest determining factor is how you drive the car. For me I am able to drive more efficiently without this gizmo.
Ok! Describe yours!wehey wrote:It doesn’t sound like yours was set up or working right.
Mine is nothing like you describe??
This can be improved a little, If going fast enough, one can get immediate neutral by shifting to reverse.Supersleeper wrote: If you use the shift lever there's like a 2-3 second delay to get N.
