I am calling *FOUL* on those Rankings. The car has 2,176 miles on the Odometer, and, no, we didn't drive 1,076 miles since Feb22 (CarWings shows 1,100.2 miles as of that date).hobbyguy wrote:I am still #1 for distance traveled ...

They do not have the 60 mile commutes in 65 to 75 MPH traffic. Much more local stop and go traffic, thus the better energy economy and eco trees. I saw one Japanese driver earned 20 something trees in one day! Most I have is 6 because of heavy traffic on my morning commute due to accidents and rain one day. That was 6 with 80% charge. 20 Trees is crazy for one day and 110 miles traveled! No it's not a competition
That is another reason to buy.... or just plan to buy at the end of the lease.LEAFer wrote:P.S.: We need to "slow down" ... car is on a 15,000 mile/year lease ... the current annual rate is 22,062
I'm averaging about 20,000+/ year, but I was expecting that. I'm throwing about $80/mo into a separate savings account just for the overage in the likely event that I don't buy the car at the end of the lease. If I DO buy, then it's extra $$, but if not, it's my excess mileage @.15/mi ready to be paid.LEAFer wrote: P.S.: We need to "slow down" ... car is on a 15,000 mile/year lease ... the current annual rate is 22,062

Actually, I wonder if the battery efficiency will go up in our Phoenix heat, to offset some of the 'cost' of A/C? It would be interesting to see what ambient temperature is most efficient for the Leaf.
Can you tell how many total Leaf owners there are, through Carwings? Or does it just show you Eco-Trees?
