Can I just plug my 30kw Leaf into my 13 amp socket in the garage.
If you have the granny cable for it, yes BUT only advisable if you have fairly recent, modern electrics in your home. Old wiring and sockets may not be up to the task of carrying such a high current for such a long time, and it may not be totally safe. Be sure to regularly check the first few times for any signs of heat building up, and definitely not overnight to start with.

It would always be recommended to get a proper home charging unit installed, not only for safety but for added convenience with the potential of much faster charging speeds.
