Re: Optimum EV Charging and Electricity Consumption Time for GHG, TOU

Thanks JoeS for input. I have a 2005 Dodge Sprinter that I would like to make hybrid. Can you tell me about your "EV Conv: 156v '86 Ram PU, 144v '65 Saab 96" conversions? Are they documented in thread somewhere?

Optimum EV Charging and Electricity Consumption Time for GHG, TOU

In order to charge at the cleanest grid time, I have set my EVSE to only charge from 7h to 17h. Besides helping to reduce GHG, this also promotes solar, and will hasten the demise of non-renewables. Until SCE's TOU supports this and is actually cheaper for me, I'm staying on the standard NEM plan. h...

Re: What's the WORST range you've gotten

I was getting only 32 miles RR with a full charge at home. I took it to the dealer and gave them copies of news articles about battery problems at the battery manufacturer and the $30 million dollar settlement to make it right in Japan. They tested for weeks, over and over, techs from Japan, etc. a...

Re: Solar-powered interior cabin heater?

This looks like a good heating option for the miev, if we could get a salvage one from a crashed ??? EV.

Re: Duosida EVSE

PS I see you have a Zero motorcycle. I have a couple motorcycles and I would like to get a Zero. How is it? It's perfect for commuting. I really like it. Many advantages to ICE motorcycles. Range is easy to extend a lot in a pinch, by drafting and slowing down. Once I calculated I was getting 450MP...
