    Hi All,

    I've a lady collecting my leaf tomorrow and I want to send her off well.

    Ideally with a document on what to do next.


    Look at nightsaver rate for overnight charging.
    Grant for charger
    Nissan App for turning on remotely
    Register for Onstreet charging
    Keep an eye on range on a cold wet day

    I was just wondering if anyone has a document or a top ten that might be useful to give her.

    This was mine (which is pretty similar to yours and I believe it has covered day-to-day use).

    You could list out a few of the apps worth having, But also why it’s worth having them......

    For instance PlugShare, good for finding out about chargers, seeing pictures of them, seeing how reliable they are..... ABRP - good for planning journeys and finding potential charging stops etc....
