    Hi everyone, Our 2017 Leaf 30kW passed the 3 year mark in July this year. When the Nissan Connect EV app stopped refreshing, I realised I had to resubscribe to Nissan Connect EV online (which I did), but after one or two days I stopped being able to refresh again (last update 29 August 2020)...

    Hi there, I am considering getting a home charge point and it looks like Chargemaster and ChargedEV are around the premium end, with the latter quoting me £674 for an EO (tethered unit) with installation and after the £350 grant is applied. Does that sound about right? I know install can depend...

    I am getting rid of my Version 3 OVMS module with GSM (Cellular) and GPS antennas, and a Leaf style OBDII cable (that has had the OBDII cable relief removed as it was used in an e-NV200). It has no SIM or SD card installed, you'd have to add your own. Was working when removed from my van...

    If anyone is interested, I swapped from a Zoe (2013) 22kw to a Leaf 24, 2015, Tekna. These have been my experiences so far. It’s worth noting, that I loved my Zoe, so some of this is hard to say/admit. 

Leaf is far less finicky when charging, the Zoe would often refuse to charge at certain...

    Hi, My wife's car insurance is due in a few week's time. I used PlugInsure in the past & it was very cheap. For example, I paid about £200 for the car insurance premium for my Nissan Leaf 30 KWh a year ago. PlugInsure gave my wife a rather high quote. They claim it's because their main...

    The Kia Niro EV has a weak point that has bothered me since purchasing the car on May 6th 2019, the reverse lights are useless. I found a solution and created this video to help others. If you have any questions, please let me know.

    Just in case anyone else is interested in how the 40Kwh leaf winds down from charging it's battery. On my Rolec 7Kwh charger, when the bulk charging process stops: The leaf consumes ~1.6KWh in one hour and 6 minutes Consumption decays to 1/2KW in 40 minutes The final 26 minutes only adds/...

    We're waiting on a Leaf 40 to replace our 30, and I'm thinking of making a little insert to make an extra space in the boot for stashing camping stuff. Can anyone tell me if there is a major difference in the boot dimensions between the two models, or are they identical?

    This summer we're going to be travelling through France with our Leaf 40, and I'd like to ask if there any up to the minute tips anyone can give for such a trip. I've seen there are Chademo rapid chargers around, with an attached cable, but I've noticed some of them have a Chademo option with...

    Hi, I was doing research into EV's and I still cannot find any clarity about real distance difference between them... especially in freezing temperatures. Looking into the affordable second-hand EVs available and it's basically just 4 cars: the "Triplets", VW e-up!, Nissan leaf and Renault Zoe...

    Hi. I have a 66 Nissan Leaf (22k miles), due for a “major service” at a cost of £209 from Nissan. It suspect it also needs replacement tyres and brake pads (maybe even discs...), which I’ve booked it into the local garage for. They haven’t done EV servicing before but are happy to do the “usual...

    Hi all, I had a 6.6kW Type-1 Rolec WallPod charger installed about 3 or 4 years ago for a Nissan Leaf Mk1 and I now drive a BMW 530E with a Type 2 charger. I bought a Type 1 to Type 2 adapter but when I plug it in, the BMW shows a message "mains power too low" and the light on the WallPod stays...

    Stumbled on this forum on a link from mynissanleaf.com. I'm an engineer with a military truck manufacturer, chorister, all around curious person. Recently separated (by crash) from a beloved Volt, experimenting with a 30 kWh LEAF now. Mostly I'll just read and learn. - Chris
