    This is bay area, California. Typical morning commute on highway 101 (speed varies between 15 and 55mph). The last 15miles were all on a near straight line with minimal elevation changes, occasional stops due to bumper to bumper traffic. Morning weather was 55F. Autopilot perhaps 90% of that time. Car is charged to 80% capacity every night. I have seen 215wh/mile before for same commute, but today was the lowest.
    Model 75D, with less than 3K miles on odometer. Our previous leaf used to give 4Miles/KW, and 174wh/mile equates to 5.7 - wow!

    Do these cars have mood swings :), or that I just hit all the ideal conditions?

    cheers

    You're obviously using the wrong highway. You could easily average 500wh/mi using 280. :)
