What happened to your jag? You still have it?
Service sucked, and they discontinued it, all they cared about was Land Rovers.

Dom, have you already got the 18 in your possession? Any pictures? Plans for mods?

And then you'll get bored with it again, sell it, and buy a Fiat 500 Abarth or the like.
Dom should be old enough for gold chains and a Corvette.

It comes with a level II "Travel charger". It also has a bracket for wall mounting. Just slide it in and out of the bracket. The plug is a NEMA 14-50 so called RV plug. Very common. I had an electrician friend install a receptacle in my garage on a 40 amp 240v circuit. That will give me 32 amp charging. I can easily go from dead battery to full charge overnight on time of use rates. It will charge at the rate of about 26 miles of range per hour of charge. The charger also has an adaptor so that you can use a 120v 15 amp circuit but that only gives about 4 miles of range per hour of charge. Not very practical but works for some people.

I have not yet used a public charger. With 220 miles of range I can usually go about a week between charges. The dealer is only 1/2 mile from me and I can charge for free there if I choose. There are other public chargers nearby.

The Leaf is not well suited for road trips for several reasons I won't bore you with. Most notably, lack of active thermal management for the battery. Makes repeated fast charges problematic.

I have a client 56 miles away that I can easily do the round trip. I have another one 100 miles away that I visit about once a year. That would be risky to do on a single charge. There are fast chargers available at about the halfway point. I could stop there on the return trip for about 15minutes and have plenty of headroom to get home. I went to Road America last Saturday. It was great test. A milestone. 67 miles each way. Puttering around the track on a 92° day with the AC on. Including turning the climate control on as I walked back to the car. Bit of a headwind on the way home. Arrived back home with 54 miles remaining in the tank. I always have a plan B. Take the wife's car.

A picture of my charging station;
Glad to hear your enjoying the leaf seemed like you would enjoy it when you initially considered swapping, I'm strongly considering changing to an EV for my daily
since 91 Octane is nearly $1.60 per L up here (almost $6/gallon) for you US folk and looking to get only more expensive.

Honestly if Nissan released a redesigned Leaf based on the ARIYA EV platform with real thermal management I'd be sold on the idea,
was expecting to do a hybrid next or the redesigned Q60 but nearly $30K in fuel savings over 10 years (assuming prices stay at this level)
is just too much money to ignore.

Gold chain I have, had a chance at a 72 Stingray, but picked up the 85 Mustang GT.

I hope it is a chain style that doesn't pull at your chest hair.

Hair loss can be a sign of high testosterone levels too.

I hate it so much, I think I'd rather take a limp wrist and no back hair!
You just need to get creative like this Dale Earnhardt fan.
