I start car and see 100 Miles. I start driving home (10 miles) and after a few miles the dash indicates 85 miles. I've seen this repeatedly where the miles drop by 5-10 miles after just driving a few miles (no air conditioning, no extreme weather, etc). Is this normal behavior? Thanks.
Even with ideal weather conditions and not use the A/C, heat or even the fan, the terrain your driving can make a huge difference. Even if it doesn't look it to your perspection and not noticing the long gradual incline, and your dots are just a few in usage you can be holding at a range that hasn't change immediately because sometimes it takes a minute for the re-calculation to catch up and then boom, it catches up and you lost a significant amount of range. This to me seems typical for the Leaf's behavior. The calculations are never dead on. It does it's best.
