Ooh, judging by my charging data today I was down to 20% so:

EGolf,35.8,18,2,151.5

There were only 23 miles left on the GOM though which would suggest I was below 20%.
Thanks for that. Hope you can find the time and enthusiasm to add some more range figures. Always best if it can be 100 - 20 and fine for figures like 100 - 25 or 100 - 15 also not too bad if you present 95 to 15. Wanting to start at 100 was because the miles travelled per % charge is not linear over the first 20% in a Leaf anyway.

Nah, last week I saw 3 leafs on one journey, and this morning I followed a Zoe, I've seen various i3s and model s's, but yet to see another Kona electric on the road though!
I see one every week, friend has just bought one. He's loving it

Leaf,40,18,2,129 - That was over the last couple of days now its cooled off in the East

Mind you, I went a bit mad during the hottest couple of days last week, showing off the car to my brother. Not all. but some of these journeys involved cruising at 80 for 5 miles and checking out top speed and generally showing off performance. Got to 95 but still had power. Other journeys were more my normal style - keeping to speed limit on A roads etc

Leaf,40,24,2,110 There would need to be a note on the graph identifying this as unusual driving (going a bit mad)

Leaf,40,24,2,125 hot weather with LOTS of solar gain so A/C working a lot of the time

Leaf,40,21,2,98,100-36

Could not run down to 20% as doing a 220 mile round trip to Broadstairs tomorrow at mostly Motorway speeds. Should be interesting as its the first long journey I've done in 6 moths of ownership, and there's a couple of [expensive] chargers there

At last, did a mainly motorway speed journey to Broadstairs which is a 116 mile journey each way. Tended to travel cautiously to start at 60ish + overtaking lorries at 70 and then 65-68 mph. So the first leg was:
Leaf,40,23,1,125. Managed to charge to 98% at Banatynes and do some shopping in the nearby Tesco for the return journey
This was probably was marginally faster with some slow sections due to accidents and the figures were:
Leaf,40,24,1,119,98-18

For the first leg I noted the miles per 10% charge which were
22 16 15 15 15 14 12 16.

This Sunday did a 132 mile round trip to Nth London on A12 and M25. Travelling early morning and late evening it was cool, 14 average so no A/C, but I travelled faster than the previous Broadstairs trip, more like how I would drive a diesel.

Results - Leaf,40,14,1,122

Interesting figures, and not much of a drop in range with the higher speed

Leaf,40,18,2,111,96-22

This was after a rapid charge so didn't get to 100% - a bit rainy but warm.

Leaf,40,24,2,93,100-33 - lots of short journeys with AC on all the time.

With the good weather I am finding it less convenient to run down to 20% or below as my wife and I, both being retired, like to take unplanned days out in the leaf - just sticking a pin in the map and setting off. We know how far we can go so anywhere within a 60 - 70 mile radius is comfortable this time of year.

One last week when weather in the low 20s
Leaf,40,22,2,130,98-14
and one over the last two days
Leaf,40,26,2,121,98-18

Bear with me - I will publish results in a graph here next month but please put in some data - all makes and models welcome.

leafs and zoes: driving like an idiot 2.5M/kWh, driving like grandad: 5M/kWh. other figures (like 6M/kWh) are done in unrealistic scenarios (low distance trips, mostly downhill, rear wind, etc)

Absolutely right. The main idea behind this thread was to compile a large amount of data showing the 100% - 20% range of various EVs. Mainly it is for planning long journeys, so you would have a pretty good idea of a realistic range for different journey types, on a month by month basis or by temperature. All the things you say do affect range but the reality is, that when we set off on long journeys we are much more likely to drive how we would normally in and ICE vehicle. Bits where we speed up, slow bits following traffic or through 40mph zones but being reasonably careful not to "waste" energy - well that's what I do anyway.

It's not always easy to get data exactly for 100 - 20 and recently I have found I am less likely to do it as I need to to quite a few 110 mile trips.
So latest was - Leaf,40,24,2,114,100-28
