2012 Nissan Leaf SV 4dr Hatchback (3-phase, 4-pole electric DD)
When buying the LEAF start off with the lease.
This way get the $7500 deducted from the price right away.
After that is done, you refinance
and buy it. I did this and got my discount right away without waitng.
Next, Home Depot has a 240v battery charger online that is a couple of hundred dollars cheaper than what is offered anywhere else.
If you have a gas dryer use the electrical connection for that circuit and save more money.
I have found that following behind large trucks on the highway increases the range considerably.
I auctually got the 100mpg when I drove under 60mph when following these trucks
Dude, if you're getting increased mileage from drafting behind trucks then you're following too closely. There's a mythbusters episode about this. They were using a gasoline engine instead of an EV, but the principle is the same.
