Max pressure of 51 PSI, I just checked the sidewall. I never exceed maximum tyre inflation pressures.

Well, it turns out our leafs don't have TPMS. I'm running 46 psi and the Bridgestone tyres are actually significantly quieter and general handling has improved. Energy usage has also dropped at least .01 kwh/km. Car is not reporting any warnings. Ride is a bit harsher, but for me it's a small trade ...

You have to use the numberplate in conjunction with the Model..... Leaf BLQWER. Tyres are already at 40 PSI. The only reason I don't raise them further is because I read that the TPMS thinks over 40PSI is an over-inflation and sets off warnings. That being said, do the Australian delivered cars even...

It seems my energy usage is averaging out at about .15kWh. Nothing I do drops the energy usage any lower. I've been reading reviews on the tyres and found reports that they're pretty ordinary for economy. I never replace tyres with OEM spec, there are almost always better tyres on the market than th...

Level 2 EVSE

Thanks for the info. I just had a look @ Jetcharge and I find their pricing far more reasonable than others. I did get a quote over the phone from 1 company who told be $1,300 delivered + installation over the phone, then changed the price to $1,650 in the subsequent email quotation. I'll be contact...

Thanks for the welcome. I just purchased some personal plates for the Leaf, still waiting to hear from Vic Roads on whether it's valid or not. I think all plates have to go through that validation now because the computer isn't smart enough to block all the good ones. Getting about .18kwh/km around ...

I don't know if I'm searching in the ...

New Leaf Owner

Hi All. I'm a (soon to be) Leaf owner popping in to say hi. Deposit has been paid, I'm just waiting on final finance approval. I'm moving over from a Ford Foulcan and I must say, government assistance ain't the reason they're closing. I'm currently playing around with personal plate combos and hope ...
