"gas pedal"??? Can't wait for the day when our kids (hopefully) ask "what's a gas pedal"?!! (Sorry Lopton, only teasing - I'm so absent minded I'll probably pull into a gas station in my LEAF one day).Lopton wrote:If you use the energy screen (zero emissions button, upper right button on the screen) you can actually see the difference between ECO and drive. With some practice you may find that you prefer ECO because you can coast by varying the pressure on the gas pedal.
I can't wait to drive my leaf! "Gas" (and oil) have become deeply engrained in our culture -- often out of sight. The cultural shift has begun, and I am enjoying participating, supporting, and watching! Nissan calls that pedal the "accelerator pedal" in the owner's manual, but I think a better name would be "torque pedal"!Lopton wrote:With some practice you may find that you prefer ECO because you can coast by varying the pressure on the gas pedal.
