I've had my LEAF for just over 3 weeks now & yesterday on my drive home I noticed my dash told me I had 5.1 m/kw for my 37 miles I drove!
And with only 5 bars the GOM was saying 55 miles to go. It was from just driving around town like normal, nothing intentional .
When I first got my LEAF I seemed to get about 3.4 m/kw and I've slowly been changing my driving habits. The main things that seem to help my range is no jack rabbit starts (but the LEAF kicks it off the line!) and hitting my cruise control at the speedlimit when in town (mostly 30 & 40 mph) this help keep me from weaving traffic to race up to a traffic light.
After having to charge to 100% the first couple of weeks to get my normal driving range, I'm now finding that 80% gets me home with 15-20 miles left on my battery pack. Of course it's unusually warn in TN right now & once I start having to run the heater I'll probably have to L1 charge at work, if for nothing more than preheat capability
Love my LEAF!
