Well for those who didn't know, I was out of town a few weeks for a family reunion back east, returning yesterday. As always, when out of town there are things that we must consider when our LEAF sits patiently waiting our return.
Of course, you could elect to have someone drop you off and pick you up. That was not as easy as I thought it would be since some of my options were headed the same place and weren't available.
A shuttle is also a consideration but I didn't even consider the option. A quick search on Way.com found me a parking lot willing to do 12 days for $65 so I was in!
Finding a place to stay was done so the next thing was making sure the charge level on the LEAF was enough to drive the 45 miles to the lot and have enough on the return to make it to a charging station for the ride home. Although, the amount of charge lost would be unknown, I was confident it would be minimal. I picked a 70% charge which worked out well putting me at 42% SOC. Not bad at all.
