The fact is, only owners of MY '11-'12 Leafs can (easily) charge to 80%, so no matter what you think/believe, many can't do it even if they want to.
IMHO, removing the "80% charge" option from MY '13+ was a huge mistake, and I continue to use that option (frequently) to this day.
To be clear, it was removed on US market model year '14+ Leafs. '13 Leafs still have it. In fact, not only we can we do it via the charging timer, but it can also be done (w/o timers) via a "long life" mode charge to 80% option. I use the midnight to midnight timer trick (as someone here taught me). That way, I can remotely trigger charging to 100% later in the day, if needed. (i.e. charge to 80% and on days I need 100%, about 2 hours before I leave work, I remotely trigger charge now).
Some Leafs outside the US still had it even longer (e.g. '15 Leaf in Ireland: http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 13#p416013
