not bad, I would roll with it if it were close, assuming the electronic bits weren't complete junk. I don't need the extra range, but others in the house could use it.

Any details on the conversion?

Very cool mod.

MetroMPG 12-22-2015 12:00 PM

First I've heard of that mod. Thanks for sharing it.

Though I'll admit I am slightly disappointed ... from the title, I thought we had a Leaf owner who joined us to show us all the mods that improved the car's crappy drag coefficient and improved range!

I hope it has a (rear) suspension mod to go with the extra weight.

Yeah, that would be cool... I actually went through that thought process... I thought of an aero trailer for more storage when I need to lug something... I thought of aeromods... i romanced it for a while and then remembered my expenses in rehab, renovate, expanding my house... no cars for me... hell, I have always got lots to do on the black & green civic!

I hear you. Too many projects & not enough time.

P-hack 12-22-2015 07:52 PM

the leaf isn't the draggiest thing in the world.
Fifth Place: Nissan Leaf

it would need about a 28% improvement to match the model S cda (claimed 14hp @ 70mph, vs 18 for the leaf), but the leaf is ~1200lbs lighter.

This user claims a %20 improvement from grill/mudflaps...

Today, I went online to craigslist agajn to look at this Leaf. Still there. I then went and found my wife and said to her: "talk me out of buying this car." And she did! hahaha! Turns out she really prefers that cash going into the house improvements. ☺
