Board,

Has anyone yet done any modifications to their E+ to help improve efficiency. While impressed you can maintain above 4 miles per kWh at "reasonable" freeway speeds, I want to know if anyone has pushed the envelope yet on the car. (beyond increasing the PSI in the tires).

Has anyone taped the small grill at the bottom? Wheel covers?

Thank you in advance.

Because why be satisfied with 250 miles of methodical freeway driving if you can have 253? :)

After looking at the Tesla range site, I concur it’s likely the larger wheels which hurt the range over the additional weight.

Can anyone recommend a good set of wheel covers for the new leaf?
