Yepir. And I like that term “raw gauge”. But for a non techs guy like me that’s about as good as it gets.SageBrush wrote:^^
If the trips are in similar road conditions, traffic and weather, it can be used as a raw gauge to trend but I would be wary of sweeping statements. I commute to work over a very predictable route using cruise control and still see 10% variation day to day. I presume wind is the difference although I rarely notice it.
In your climate I would strongly suggest not charging to 100% for the daily commute. I am currently experimenting on degradation verses temps at lower SOC (good results) against degradation at high SOC and cooler temps (not so good results)Newporttom wrote:Had our 2018 for almost a month and a bit over 1,000 miles. We put over 39,000 miles in close to 3 years on our 24Kwh Lizard replacement battery without losing a bar. So we "took a chance" on the 2018 without TMS.
Dislikes are pretty small. Wish the NAV displayed ETA. Wish the steering wheel telescoped. The center console gets in the way of my right knee. But since my wife drives it 90% of the time it's not a huge thing.
But we love the ride.... and wow do we love the range. She has a 52 mile commute. She would get home with 20 miles left on the GOM. Now she gets home with like 120.
Today she did her commute. We charged it for an hour, and then drove it 37 miles round trip toa restaurant and got home with about 118, Most of her driving is 45 MPH or less. About 10 miles each way is highway.
Tried the Lane assist a couple times. Wasn't crazy about it. Tried Lane Departure. It's ok. Like the Adaptive cruise control a lot. Like the E-Pedal.

- - I really LOVE the B-Mode regenerative braking system. Love love love, both my wife and I never use D-mode. For those who used to drive standard transmission, you will love it. It's like shifting down to 2nd gear without the need to brake. In many cases, I didn't even need to apply brake to turn.
- e-Pedal is very good for traffic congestion
- The car looks very cool, I just tinted the glass last week. It looks like a sport car (although I am a bit old for that)
"B" mode is a more aggressive regeneration setting so that when you let off the accelerator pedal you slow down more rapidly before needing to press the brake pedal & typically you use the brake pedal a lot less.Sch wrote: I’m a very new 2018 Leaf owner.
What’s the difference between B-Mode and the E-Peddle?
