Re: Riversimple and Fuel Cell Discussions

As an update on the conversion of methane to hydrogen I read this rather interesting piece: https://www.techexplorist.com/four-stroke-engine-cycle-produces-hydrogen-methane-captures-carbon-dioxide/4911/ This could probably work in a home off of a gas network. Sounds like a syngas rig without wood. ...

Re: Admin: Spam Concerns

I’ve often though all posts with links in them made by someone with less than 50 posts should be ghosted until a moderator approves.

This is how other sites deal with it then the spammer thinks his posts are there but in reality only he sees them

“You'll notice one of the rare Saturn-type at the charging “

I don’t see any pics but also what is a Saturn type?

Re: Need a longer range ev

Even though I agree that for this use-case (lovely chalet, BTW) a Volt would certainly be suitable and a most cost-effective selection, I can't let this comment pass Agree, would take a wee bit of planning. :oops: :geek: PS I also loved my Gen1 Insight. I would have posted a supercharger map of my ...

Re: Need a longer range ev

The i-MIEV has become our primary car, 99% of the driving we do is within its range and I use our van for those rare long trips. My wife hates stopping to charge for a long time so I'm not sure if a long range EV is in our future based on what's on the market now. The upcoming Model Y seems to be t...

Re: Need a longer range ev

Joining this party rather late ... DougC, in re-reading your comments I was confused as to how many dollars you were willing to commit to this purchase. In keeping with this thread's title and considering only BEVs (ICE bing a dirty word), my vote would be to buy the cheapest non-salvage non-accide...

Re: Life with Chevy Bolt EV

4. It would be wrong to believe that a company like Toyota will not have been working very hard behind the scenes to perfect BEV technology. They have been quite anti-EV. Their leadership has been quite vocal about this. https://www.google.com/amp/s/insideevs.com/lexus-ceo-presents-his-anti-ev-case...

Re: Need a longer range ev

If your going new be aware that the 2019 Volt is already out so steep discounts should be possible, also the 2019 may be within a few $100 of the 18 if you get a good dealer plus 19’s offer 7.2kw charging, on the off chance something changes and you can find a charger that works that is a game chang...

Re: Need a longer range ev

Oh I agree Don, that is why I bought a 2013 Volt back in the day, I do 1 or 2 4000 mile trips out west every year and I loath carrying more extra cars so Volt it was, even if there were EV highways , it still would have been very troublesome making the trip without a PHEV, any charging is a bonus wi...

Re: Need a longer range ev

Thanks for the responses. I've thought about the C-Max. There has been a few off-lease units at the local Ford dealer. Do you know how the heater is configured in the C Max, does it pull heat from the ice? Personally, unless you need the space I wouldn’t go for the Cmax. The cMax is a discontinued ...
