Hi there, I bought an inexpensive 2011 Leaf about 9 months ago, at the time with 9 capacity bars left. We use it for driving around town and love it; it went down to 8 capacity bars about six months ago.
Lately, the range has been doing some funky things...dropping WAY faster than the GOM would predict, dropping two range bars in quick succession, losing charge bars just by turning the car on, and on the rare occasions that we use a quick charge the charger will read 40+% full even when the dash reads a super low range, and only one or two range bars.
So I finally went ahead and set up Leafspy, and have been reading a lot about how to interpret. Forgive me if this is a stupid question--I'm no engineer--but I'm trying to understand why there is such a huge difference between the SOC% (which seems to correlate with what the dash reads) and GID% (which seems to coordinate more with actual range).For instance, here's how it looked after being fully charged and left for a few hours. https://ibb.co/0JSBvgc
That ~30% difference between SOC and GID seems approximately constant no matter how much of the charge is used. Any thoughts, anything to be done, is this the source of our woes?
