I am driving Forest today, and I am using my GPS to check the odometer. So far, the odometer is registering 13.4 miles, while the GPS is reading only 13.1. Which doesn't bode well for the odo's accuracy. I will keep it going all day, but that could mean the odometer is 1.5-2% over reporting.

Which drops the efficiency a bit.

Also, a more problematic issue has become all too obvious: the windshield is leaking water at the top center. Apparently, there have been a few similar issues with 2014 Leafs. The dealer will be looking at it Monday. Apparently the fix - resealing the windshield - takes only ~20 minutes.
Sincerely, Neil
