Took a day-trip yesterday from Boulder to Glenwood Springs; 360 miles round-trip. Was able to get by with L2 charges during meal stops in Vail and at the Hot Springs Resort in GS. I drove conservatively (55-65mph on I-70). Energy efficiency was 4.9 mi/kwh, as reported by Nissan Connect.
During the trip I kept a close eye on the battery temperature in LeafSpy, and saw a 25 degree rise over the course of the day. This just underlines the observation of many others that the Leaf has limited utility for long trips; no way I could have repeated the trip today without overheating.
Although I completed the trip using L2 chargers, it was something of a nail-biter. I had planned for a QC to top-up before tackling the return trip hills, but I could not get the Chademo station in Vail to activate and the one Chademo port on the EA station in Frisco was out-of-order. Fortunately the coast down from the tunnel to Denver took barely any charge over 50 miles and I got home without any LBW.
