Close call

I like to live (LEAF πŸ˜‰ ) on the edge; tonight I tested the Β battery charge indicator of my electric car to the edge; I left my friends place after a nice dinner for a 42km trip home with only a battery capacity to drive 46km…*and* knowing that most of the road would be uphill, I expected a less efficient drive than normal…brrrrr!

With my 11100km LEAF driving experience in just over 8 months (still FANTASTIC!), I pretty much know how to gain on battery efficiency (basically drive like my granny πŸ˜‰ ) and…I made it home having at least ‘some’ juice left (< 5 km)!! Oof, a close call!
Haha, luckily the ‘nearby charging station’ was only 5 meters away!

The battery level indicates EMPTY, and the driving range indicator jumped from 5km to ‘—‘ some kilometers before home…
