Thanks... The wife just got home with the Leaf, and I've already got the timer set to take it to 80% from now on. I spent today reading this forum, and I'll spend tomorrow reading the owner's manual again now that I've been driving it a few months.

Behold: City of Houston's Leaf fleet, Tranquility Park underground parking garage, during lunchtime on July 18, 2012:

There were two rows of Leafs. One of the EVSE units was being operated on by two people from the black SUV in the last picture.

Wow, that is awesome. Which city employees get to drive them?

I think they're pool cars, so probably any city department can use them, but I'm not certain of that (I don't work for the city). I was a little concerned they weren't being used during the middle of a business day, but maybe city employees use them mostly to commute?

Pretty cool. The pics looked like something from iRobot!!!

Wonder if they will have any issues with such a potentially large population being trained on how to drive the LEAF "properly." 99% of it is just like any other car. However, that 1% could be problematic (e.g., turtle mode when unexpected, run to no charge, etc.)
