Really this discussion needs to be in another thread and we need screeshots from leafspy so we have access to all the numbers not just part of them. You'll have to present all the data without conclusions and let us build the case.
new thread is started here http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 87#p457087
If you have leafspy you don't need to use the range charts this thread is about.
fair enough, though i'm still unsure why my range appears to limited.
But just as a quick aside it's all the same no matter if it is a Leaf, a Prius or a geo metro. Speed, temperature, tire pressure, elevation, etcetera. I have no problem driving 70 miles on a leaf with 77% SOH but then I probably drive slower than you and I'm not afraid to drive will into VLBW.
i've tried to test my range below LBW in the past, when i didn't have a toddler in the back seat and was close to home. i made it to turtle then plugged in. this was in in warm weather (september, north east USA) and with high mi/kwh (~4.5) mostly driving ~25 mph on backroads. range was ~64 miles in those conditions.
If you are stopping to charge as soon as the first low battery warning sounds you are leaving 20% or so on the table unused that you should be willing to dip into.
ok, i'll take that. 20% is huge. i'll try to track with leaf spy more in the future to get a better handle on this.
One of the big advantages of leafspy is that it doesn't blank out below VLBW you know exactly what your SOC% is even when you have less than 8 miles remaining (or whatever the GOM says just before you switch to dashes).
yup, i see that benefit. though in practice it doesn't seem to help much on long trips. i hit multiple nissan dealerships back to back with dead DCQC stations and was well beyond my comfort level on a cold night with a toddler in the back and not knowing whether or not the NEXT station would be functional when i got there... having some buffer in the battery seems to be a necessity rather than a luxury in practice. you never know when poorly maintained infrastructure would have you driving another 20+ miles beyond your planned stopping point
aHr is the number to look at if you think the pack was reset
1 bar lost around 50 aHr
2 bars lost around 46 aHr
3 bars lost around 42 aHr
if your isn't in line with your SOH% then make a new thread with a title like "another used car sold with reset bars" and we'll dig into it there.
interesting. according to leafspy i've got 55.62Ahr (though it only charges to ~90% so that's ~50AHr effective. maybe that's what you mean with the above?)
convo to continue at the new thread.
