I assume so as well. I 'estimate' I've lost between 5-10% of original capacity based on a perceived drop in range when fully charged. I don't have a GID meter so I could be way off.

Is there any way to display time to 100% charge on the dash if the charge timers are set to 80%?

Otherwise, what would your rules look like for time to charge to 80%? Should I simply subtract 3:30 from all of the numbers since that is what I read on Carwings after a charge to 80%?

That is probably the best method - charge to 80% and see what Carwings estimates to 100%. FWIW - my car estimates 4:00 to 100% on L1 when charged to 80% in CARWINGs (have all firmware updates). But I think new cars estimate 4:30 to 100% on L1 based on surfingslovak's reverse range chart:

This is a pretty old thread... but I was wondering if anyone has made a decal to go over the dash display lining the SOC % with the bars?
Could be handy.

I had thought about that, but a Gidmeter makes the entire fuel gauge redundant.

Has anyone noticed that the first 2% SOC seem to be used (100,99) faster then the lower % SOC? I can usually only get a few tenths of a mile on the 100% reading, and maybe a mile on 99%. Below that it goes to a normal "range" where if driving conservatively, I can get 1.3-1.5 miles per percent SOC (20-35 mph with slow acceleration).

The 11 and 12s are the same way...

Either the 2015 breaks the mold or I got something funky going on.

I charged to 100% and drove to work this morning, about 17 miles and the SOC% on the dash says 85%. But dash is still showing 11 bars :? . Carwings also reports 11 bars. With the 2012, the first bar always seemed like the "thinnest" bar.

Is this normal for 2015?

Edit: So finally driving at lunch it dropped to 10 bars at an indicated 83% SOC (243 GIDs per LeafStat). Not as funky as I'd thought since I was right on the cusp of dropping to 10 bars. But still, bars 12+11 came to be about 13% previously, and 17% is a bit higher than I expected.
