Yes, I completely agree. Level power output is best. And as long as you aren’t holding up traffic, if you can maintain momentum by timing lights a little bit, it goes a long way in your efficiency.
Here is a question. Ionic and Tesla’s 3 both show much higher efficiency then the Leaf (even more so my plus). If I can get 6 around town, would an Ionic or 3 let me get 6.5 or 7? I haven’t seen any posting supporting that. I do get the feeling that Ionic and the 3 do a bit better job leveling the power curve in normal driving, more than drive train efficiency. Weight on the 3 is pretty close, a bit less on the Ionic.
I find the difference between 36 and 44 psi is bumps from missing pavement feel harder at 44. I can live with that. I would like to look for some light steel or aluminum rims that I could put aero caps on. Guessing you could shave 40 lbs of unsprung weight and improve aero a bit. Not sure where I would put the extra set of wheels.
Ok, 2 month check. This is after overnight level 1, 89% SOC and 270 on the gom. Last 40 or so miles have been pretty efficient.

Have othera go adjusted down further yet. This is with eco on and no ac/heat activated.
