Re: Maintenance of gearbox ....

Funnily enough, I just completed this myself on our Citroen C-Zero at about 18,500 miles. In the UK, we have a retailer called Halfords and it cost me £9.99 for 1 litre of ATF SP III specification gearbox oil (ATF is automatic transmission fluid). I spent a couple of pounds on a syringe to refill th...

Re: Posted in August, C-Zero deposit placed today!

Hello from the UK - had my iOn since April 2013. Whereabouts are you in the UK? Profile updated - am up in Llandudno, North Wales. Have noticed a Miev in the neighbouring village of Rhos On Sea (maybe someone on here...?!), but not really any other EVs locally. Somewhat limited in terms of charge p...

Posted in August, C-Zero deposit placed today!

Well, after mulling it over since the summer and watching various cars come and go I have finally taken the plunge. Low mileage 2011 C-Zero should be here for the weekend as our 3rd car. Hope I have done the right thing as have had to buy blind, and in view of the post I originally made about the Mi...

Re: UK Peugeot Ion - Winter range @ 65 mph

If you have an updated browser try Green Race, this is a simulator for electric cars. http://www.jurassictest.ch/GR/ About Peugeot, I am not sure they still sell cars with a 16 kW-h Battery. I think they now sell their car with a 14.5 kW-h Battery. And even if you get a 16 kW-h battery, for battery...

Re: UK Peugeot Ion - Winter range @ 65 mph

Is there an outlet at her work near where she parks, and can she use it? There is a Chargemaster unit at the supermarket across town, but it's only 3kw and 2 hour parking. Not really that convenient at all. Even if it wouldn't work for her, how about your driving needs? I drive about 1,000 miles a ...

Re: UK Peugeot Ion - Winter range @ 65 mph

Thanks for your thoughts. Found another interesting post on the "i'er iChart: The iMiev Range Chart. ANY VOLUNTEERS?" thread, which would suggest it is borderline possible. If it were me I would probably give it a go. Will have to see if I can part justify with running as a 3rd car for 6 m...

UK Peugeot Ion - Winter range @ 65 mph

Have spent some time searching, and this forum has been a great find as am seriously considering an EV as a car for my wife. Her big concern is using the heater at motorway speeds and how much this will limit the range. Her commute is generally a 45 mile round trip (occasionally 62 miles) with no ch...
