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-stro ... xide/4911/

Re: Our Gas Free Miles Travelled

Here, here! We've had the 'Miev for two years and two days and put on 26,500 miles or so in that time, trouble-free as well.

Re: Why is 240V 3x faster than 120V

Trying calling the Weights and Measures people and see if they, or the county, will do an inspection... Phximiev, you're kidding, right? (you forgot the smiley face), as I don't think there is any issue here at all. Blink charges 39¢/kWh (if you're a member) at this station, no matter what the volt...
