Drive in Eco B. Use E Pedal only for quick slow downs but not to a full stop (rarely needed on freeway anyway) if possible.Flyct wrote: ↑Mon Aug 05, 2019 9:12 amDoug,DougWantsALeaf wrote: ↑Sun Aug 04, 2019 7:05 pmOk, will post the full report when back, but traveled 242.4 miles today on a charge, all but about 6 miles on the free way. Travel from northern suburb of Chicago to Bloomington IN................
Average speed over trip 48MPH due to coffee and bathroom stops, thick traffic through Chicago and a couple slow spots near the border. Divided highway Cross traffic stop lights in 30 miles south of Indy also slows down the average, and punishes efficiency. Speeds between Chicago and Bloomington were generally between 60 and 70mph. Maybe a touch faster in spots where I wasn’t paying attention.
Low battery kicked in at 107 GIds and 8.3KWh remaining (dash at 5% maybe 6%). Average efficiency 4.4 miles / kW overall.
4 adult passengers, maybe ~600Lbs + 2 suitcases and a full cooler. AC on entire trip, though set in mid-upper 70s.
Great efficiency. I can’t seem to get over 3.8 miles/kw when traveling 60-65 mph flat roads in Florida. I do this 125 mile trip several times a month.
I run tires at 40 psi, maybe 500 lbs passengers etc
What’s your Secret ? Any advice to boost efficiency?
A myth most likely since the batteries are not under the hood. Besides everything under the hood as its own cooling system and even if opening the hood helped, it wouldn't affect battery temps in any way.
I have an SL without a sunroof
I honestly haven't seen an SL WITH a sunroof. We test drove 3 in different parts of Ohio, and the ones we looked at online in MD didn't have sunroofs either. I'm not sure it's an option to have a sunroof in the SL (at least from what I've seen), you can't add one when you build one online either.
I have never seen a sunroof on the option sheet. Wasn’t on ours for our 2020 Eplus.NotATesla wrote: ↑Tue Aug 06, 2019 10:12 amI honestly haven't seen an SL WITH a sunroof.

Nissan doesn't have a sun roof optional or standard in the LEAF that I'm aware of. Someone here once got one done aftermarket in a 2015, but that's the only one I've seen.
