One year with my LEAF
It’s been one year since I started driving my Nissan LEAF electric car. The biggest adjustment has been getting used to the range which can be as few as 60 miles and up to 80 miles without recharging. I’ve experienced my share of close calls getting back to the garage charger at my house. It’s easier to justify the close calls when I count the dollars saved driving on electric power versus gasoline power. I’m making my comparisons to my previous car, a Toyota Prius, which did pretty well on gas mileage at about 35-40 MPG. I like saving money every single time I drive my LEAF. It’s been worth the risks so far.
