I have done the toe-adjustment on my "Classic" (2002) Prius many years
ago (2004)
And indeed noticed that although the mileage was slightly better, it
also became more "squirrely" to drive at speed.

For the Leaf with the same adjustment, there is nothing of the sort, it
does feel like it steers lighter than before
But there is no sensation of diverging steering that I felt with other
cars, so it looks like Nissan did a good job
In optimizing the Leaf to allow minimal friction by setting a slight
toe-out and still having a refined feel to the steering.
I was actually surprised by that.

As you probably noticed, a car with slight toe out or zero toe in will
likely "wander".  That is, the driver will constantly be making
corrections in steering direction.
