Last summer we got charging stations installed at work also. We have 10 spots, and I'd say about 4 or so are regularly used every day by employees. We have an additional four spots outside for the public.
It occurred to me this week that I've had my leaf almost five years now; I got mine in June 2012. Its amazing how time flys. I still love the car and have 10 bars, so I suspect I'll keep it for quite a while longer. I get it detailed every May, so it always looks like a new car.
I haven't seen you much lately, Eric. We must be missing each other at the Gladstone Hy-Vee. Like cdherman, we upgraded to a 30 kWh SV (Silver, still "UBY GAS" plate) and it's my wife's daily driver. The extra range as well as a new battery have helped her feel more comfortable with range and use our minivan very little. I keep toying with the idea of selling it and renting one when we need it for long-distance family trips.
The LEAF is a 3-year lease and we are keeping the mileage on track with the lease since I expect we will be trading it for whatever is out there in 2019.
We have a few more LEAFers out on the KC EV Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1717817545101518/
), so one of these days when the weather is more consistent, we should do another LEAF tech session with some cabin filter swaps and tire rotations.
I like the idea of an annual detailing.
