I just feel good all the time, mostly just because I know I'm not spewing out a cloud of sulfur dioxide and other wonderful things into the air around me. It's just great for the environment in general and great for my wallet too.
I thought I was going to have to wait a lot longer to get an EV but the Leaf hits the sweet spot. I got the 2015 S with 27k miles on it for 12k, 0 down. It was Nissan certified also which is nice (it was at the end of a 2 year lease from 1 owner).
The dealership gave me a copy of the battery test which said it was at 89.94% capacity (which I understand is still pretty good for 27k miles). I generally don't drive more than 10 miles a day so I don't even need to charge it every week .
I do have a question which I couldn't find the answer too anywhere. I'm using leafspy and was wondering what the battery would show when you actually stop rolling. Would it go to 0%? It shows a full value of 94.3%, I'm not sure how that relates to the 89.94% from the dealer battery test. What I'm really trying to figure out is how far I could actually go from Miles/%used recorded from several trips. My best guestimates so far are 87-113 total range depending on how conservative I drive and things like highway, lights, blasting AC, etc.
What are some good threads to read too?
