High winds here today; probably 25 mph tailwind as I drove to work, and closer to 35 mph headwind on the way home. LEAF doesn't like wind.
1. 5.3 miles per kWh on the way to work; 3.5 miles per kWh on the way home. Same speed, cruise control on, ECO off, heater on.
2. Wind noise; there's always some from the side windows, but it gets a lot worse when it's windy. I suspect the windows flex outward a bit, creating gaps.
3. Wind pushes the car around more than I expected. I had to make noticeable corrections after each gust from the side. The penalty for being a tall vehicle, I guess.
The good news? No blowing sand today. I'm dreading my first encounter; it pits the windshield like crazy.
