Sorry Tigger,
With a combine income south of $28k, I doubt my brother will be buying a Bolt.

My brother's wife wants an i-Miev. Its possibly within their budget. Trick is 4 dealerships in the region just stopped servicing them. Contact me Tigger. And absolutely enjoy your new car.

Re: New member needs commute distance help please!

Congratulations as well. Regarding cold weather driving... After a friend living in Japan sent me photos I realized it was culturally normative for many Japanese to consider heating mainly the lower half of the body and wearing warmer clothing on top in the "living room" of traditonal home...

Re: Adapter to use my Clipper Creek 14-50 keeps showing power failure

The CC likely has an internal power supply to generate low-voltage dc for the control circuits, and likely uses one Line leg to Neutral to source this power. Neutral is a return leg for power, but Ground is a protective Earth connection for safety and only carries current in a fault situation. If th...

Adapter to use my Clipper Creek 14-50 keeps showing power failure

A friend who has converted his Saturn Vue to fully electric and has worked as a mechanic at a big three dealership helped me build a converter socket/plug for my Clipper Creek 14-50 charger. The idea was to use the converter to make it possible for my 14-50 to charge at locations with NEMA 6-50 weld...

Re: Charging Down Route 66

I'm late to the party, but truly this is a historic trip. If I was in charge of the universe this would be listed in EV Currents or Sierra Club or National Geographic. I am SO charged up about this.

Re: Charging Down Route 66

By any chance are you tracking your daily average speed and conditions like wind, rain, cold, average elevation changes? Of course you could spend all your focus on data and miss seeing the roses for the data... but in a perfect world what ever you do, you'd enjoy yourself.

Re: 2016 National Drive Electric Week

Incredible... we have four NDEW sites (two new) across the state. Whoo-hooo!!! Two sites will have an imiev to represent reasonable driving. Still wishing my Holland and Grand Rapids neighbors would come down with theirs, but it does require some hypermiling and a single charge in Plainwell or Alleg...
