Casual Observational Differences in the 40 Kwh Battery Pack
Have had to address a lot of speculation over the 40 kwh battery pack with many automatically assuming (VERY applicable word here) that the new pack is the same old cells in a somewhat fatter configuration.  This I have found to be far from the truth.  In f...

July 2018 Drive Report; Chargers, Chargers and MORE Chargers!
Ok, so I was gone for half the month and my LEAF did NOT like it one bit!  I  guess I should feel wanted because she missed me so much but wish she had found a less painful way of showing her love for me. West Coast Electric Highway Despite not being here t...

Webasto And The Oregon Coast or "I Fought The Car And The Car Won!"
So after a full day of recuperating from my Michigan/Ohio trip (and the 3 hour time zone change) it was time to go on Vacation! But this time, no planes, no gassers involved. The plan; 800 miles to check out Webasto upgrade progress on the previously incomp...

June 2018 Drive Report; Charge On!

Oops! Forgot To Plug In Last Night, Or WHO CARES!
My new job has me working 10 hour shifts which has its good points and bad.  Obviously I get a 3 day "weekend" every week.  Mandatory overtime (which will happen) is not as bad when you still have 2 days off.  I have 2 weekdays off which is good as my Son i...

May 2018 Drive Report; The Trend Continues??
Ok, so first full month with new work commute and so not much of a surprise that this is lowest combined driving total in several years. The last time I drove less than 1081.0 miles was in July 2015 which made sense since I was out of town for 17 days of Ju...
