Goodbye, Bulby!

The time has come for our LEAF to go back.

The GFV was £15,000. You can get the same model and same age for half of that, so, unfortunately it is not a sensible choice to keep it.
Over our 2 year ownership, it has consumed 4353kWh. At our unit rate (9p per kW), this works out to:

  • £391.77 total cost for just under 24,000 miles!
  • 1.6p per mile!

This doesn’t include any charging away from home, but we only ever used free charging points.
We would definitely have another LEAF, they are simply amazing!
