I agree that my mileage will drop with running the a/c. My past numbers have included only rare use of climate control.

I have only been driving my 2011 Nissan Leaf for a little over 2 months and I seem to have settled at 4.3 miles/Kw. I drive mostly 55 & 45mph to work and back each weekday which is about 56 miles round trip. Locally my electricity costs 13.4 cents/Kw.

If you can specify if you drive in 'D' or 'ECO' mode, that will help.
2011 Leaf, 30K miles, returned after 24 month lease.
Currently leasing 2014 Leaf SV.

May mileage:

Wall-to-wheels: 4.36 miles/kWh

Dash: 5.1 miles/kWh

Charging efficiency at 240 V, 16 A: ~85% (This figure includes a number of charges to 100%, which are less efficient than charges to 80% or less.)

As the weather warms my mileage continues to increase. May numbers were helped by two 100+ mile trips on single charges, which involved some hypermiling, and little or no heater or AC use.

Notes: No preheating used, so charging efficiency can be calculated, although the dash mileage numbers are too coarse for precision. Driving temperatures were mostly 60s and 70s. Battery temps of five bars most of the time with six bars seen at times, often after climbing hills. Elevation range: 8,000 feet to 5400 feet. All driving includes steep hills. No multi-lane highway driving at all. Some of the driving is on dirt roads.

And I got over 5 m/kWh on my CW monthly report for the first time.

My 540 mile drive (on an L2 trip, the slower you drive, the faster you'll get there) to the San Francisco bay area and back, helped to raise the average.

I also had my greatest miles per single charge on 5/31, 105.8 miles (with about a mile each, of ascent and descent!) by my odometer, reported by CW as 103.2 miles at 5.9 m/kWh.

CW continues to under-report miles driven by about 2.5%, so I believe all the m/kWh numbers below should be adjusted upward by the same 2.5%, for greatest accuracy.

Month and Year Grade Rank Energy Economy
*Jun/2011 Gold 695 5.7 miles/kWh
*Jul/2011 Gold 1651 5.3 miles/kWh

Aug/2011 Bronze 3622 4.2 miles/kWh
Sep/2011 Silver 3457 4.5 miles/kWh
Oct/2011 Silver 3640 4.2 miles/kWh
Nov/2011 Gold 2792 4.2 miles/kWh
Dec/2011 Gold 2827 4.0 miles/kWh
Jan/2012 Gold 2547 4.2 miles/kWh
Feb/2012 Gold 2354 4.4 miles/kWh
Mar/2012 Gold 2975 4.3 miles/kWh
Apr/2012 Gold 3018 4.5 miles/kWh
May/2012 Gold 1978 5.1 miles/kWh

*Prior to CW update. Disregard, as correction factor unknown.

PS-

I just noticed that my May 2011 reports have been dropped, as the "rankings" only track the previous 12 months.

So if you wish to keep track long term, you should save this data elsewhere.

For May-2012 Carwings shows 4.8 Miles/kWh. I stopped logging daily trips since CarWings works now.

As expected with warming weather, I'm getting better m/kWh.
1st Leaf : 2/28/2011 to 5/6/2013
2nd Leaf : 5/4/2013 to 3/21/2017
Volt : 3/25/2017 to 5/25/2018
Model 3 : 5/10/2018 to ?

At 17K MILES - we've managed to come back up to 5miles/kWh at the wall - after dropping to 4.9 last winter ~ as 'she who must be obeyed' drove around more in it too.
