Back in April, I made it to Bear Valley and back from my house in Angels Camp by way of Mokelumne Hill a total of 148 miles before turtle hit and that's with a roughly 6000 foot climb. Where does that put me in the most mileage from a single 100% charge?? :)


Looks like number 5, behind Avlegends, me, Waidy and Phil.

The furthest I have gone is 134.6 miles, SOC showed 24 left. Once I knew I would make it home easily, I put it into sport mode. Driving was a mix of local roads and highway. I felt like I could get 150 for sure.

If i knew how to post a pic here, I could post it.

Go to photobucket or flickr or any of the other hosting sites... they're usually free.

well i've driven 124 with 4 left while driving at "normal" highway speeds 65-70 for half of it, with some a/c use.

I think i could do 150 if i kept it down to 50-55mph though. Thats *so slow* relative to traffic where i drive though (bay area and highway 5) that i've never attempted it. There's enough places to actually charge that i dont bother. But if i need to do a long ferry run, the lower speed is the key (it seems to me). I've tried the drafting trucks thing (its acutally kind of cool to put it in cruise and drift up behind a truck, and watch the energy input go down, however i can never convince myself to get "close enough" for it really to work well).

(there was a Mythbuster's episode on this technique by the way. it works, but to really get the benefit, you have to be pretty close).

189.2 Miles on an extended charge, LBW at 161.4, VLBW at 171.4. Drove from Temecula to Diamond Bar and back, lots of elevation change, nothing is flat around here.

Wow! Your battery is in great shape at 189.2 miles / 4.6 miles per kWh = 41.1kWh from the battery.

Congrats as the very first 300km Club member.

Nicely done...
Since my purchase I've contemplated a serious attempt at 200 miles. I even have the course picked out. An 8.5 mile square in farm country, flat at sea level. But timing a warm dry windless summer day in Western Washington is the real challenge. 24 laps and 6 hours of extreme boredom @ 35mph. And then the logistics... warming and pre-conditioning the pack, and having the support vehicle "wife in Leaf with generator in back" waiting around all day. How does that old song go? D-I-V-O-R-C-E

I think your record will stand for a while...
Sir Edmond Hillary, Charles Limburg,... and pchilds. Elite company :)

Just doing ordinary driving around over 3 days no charging not trying to conserve got
160.0 Some one of these days I will try hard to get to 200.0 it's a great vehicle. In May i loaded it with 1000 pounds of electronic gear drove to Dayton ohio via Ann Arbor took me 4 days. Drove 4 days back you have to put on your special attitude for a trip where you drive two hours and then charge for 6 or 8 hours and the drive 2 more hours. The campgrounds are the best 40 amp charging and lots of interesting people to talk to during the charge time. I guess I should do a magazine article to counteract all the tesla ones. Nobody charged me for electricity. Eagerly awaiting Tonys chademo plug

Today I tried again for some distance . The secret to distance is maximum miles per kilowatt.
This time got 4.6 and got. A single charge run of 181.4. I think I figured out a route that I can maintain at higher than 5.0 miles per kWh. Might give me a shot at 200 for one charge.
This vehicle is fun
