Hi Pat,

Glad to see you are flexing the range on your Leaf.

I have not fast charged my Leaf more than twice in one day. So, I do not
have an answer for you. Given the low charge rate near the end, while using
a DC quick charger, I just charge to a little higher level than what I need
to make it to the nest destination. I hate waiting for that last little bit
of charge.

On a slightly different note: How many and where were these DC quick
chargers that you used on this trip?

Thank you,
