I always get it on my way to work. Of course, that is with a gradual 1,400 foot elevation drop... Going home, not so much!

i just did it a week ago and yes it was downhill to downtown Oly AND back. 6.2 miles/K over 22 miles. i have actually done the same trip several times at better than 6 and can only hit 6 if the temps are over 80º. otherwise its my "normal" 5.5-5.8
Hell, I'm getting 6.4 m/kWh from Dash and CW driving over mountain passes now!
Which is one of the reasons why I have come to doubt that these reports are reliable...

Another range test, with recharge times compared, to give another view of the possible error in my LEAF's kWh use reports.
On 9/8/12 I made another "100%" to VLBW range test, repeating the same route I drove on 8/18/12, with close to 6,000 ft each of ascent and descent, with very slight variations in the final miles prior to VLBW, and got these results:
107.4 miles to VLBW, and 109.4 miles in total by odometer...
As reported by CW, 106.8 total miles (~2.5% under report), at 6.4 m/kWh, using 16.7 kWh...
