I want to start collecting data on the battery capacity of the various Leaf's represented here. Since not everyone has an SOC meter but many of us (all will a little effort) have a means to record the total power used for a full charge. Parital data is welcome (Ex: VLBW to 100%) but please make a note. I'll start with the two datapoints I know of today. Would be very interesting to see the range we have out there.
TickTock: 21.7 kWh
Dead to 100 from the wall (20.04 kWh actually entering the battery)
vegastar: 25.5 kWh
Turtle to 100 from the wall

Leaf Capacity Variation
I cross posted in Tony's cold temp thread: http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 60#p243033
Well, here's the imperfect data:
Outside Temp 28-32 F, fog/freezing fog, no wind. Car charged to 100% overnight in uninsulated garage (battery might have been a bit warmer, maybe 35-40 F, showed 4 bars to start). Pre-warmed car (on L1 does consume some of the battery) but no climate control during driving.
60.7 mi to LBW, 71.0 mi to VLBW, 80.5 mi to Turtle, 80.7 mi total, about 2 hrs total drive time.
Edit: 4.3 mi/KWH, reset at beginning of trip.
Charging: Start 12:20pm, finish ~06:30 next morning, (~18 hrs L1), 25.37 KWH
Driving Estimate: 3 mi for coffee, 1hr off, 3 mi back at 35 mph on city streets, 3mi@35city, 3@45HW, 3mi@30city, 5mi@50HW, 16 mi@55-65FW, 5mi@35city. Unfortunately, nothing was really flat. About 400ft net elevation rise outbound. LBW occurred on the freeway about 10 mi out of town. VLBW occurred as I was coming into town and the dreaded flashing "4" stayed that way for another 10 mi. Most of the VLBW was at 25-35 mph. I circled the block 2-3 times until Turtle. Looking back at this, I think under level conditions and charging/pre-heating on L2, I could have easily gotten 85 mi at similar driving speeds. I probably wasn't at a full 12 bars to start the drive.
The car is 15mo old and has about 8500 mi. Looks like I'm close to others. Hope this helps the collective cause.
