Excellent topic. A webpage widget on this would be a great tool for EV noobs. With the i-MiEV or a Gen1 LEAF on the West Coast Electric Highway portion of I-5, since the CHAdeMO stations are spaced every 35-40 miles, both cars do best if you drive it like you stole it, charge to 80%, and repeat. A Gen II LEAF is able to skip every other station if you drive with care, so that changes the calculus...
A couple of times I've passed a LEAF en route to the next DCFC, and tried not to gloat when they pulled in for a charge a few minutes behind me....
