Thanks for posting OP. Your driving experience using your "18" leaf I found informative. You were very close in range to what I had felt were going to be more realistic range numbers for a 150 mile rated Leaf. In fact, dead on with what I had extrapolated and posted about previously. The best guessing that was done was based on previous model Leafs and perceived performance of traveling at freeway speeds of around 65 MPH. I sure wished that you could have held out for the 2019 Leaf which I think (hope) will be a better car to own. It remains to be seen if Nissan will truly step up its game. I am glad that you still will be able to use this car for shorter trips but I am sorry it might not be ideal for your medium and longer trips. Good luck!
