Re: Hypermiling the i-MiEV

I measured regen efficiency several times uses two i-MiEV cars. When the front i-MiEV, going 30 mph, uses 8 BARS (~7 kWh) the towed i-MiEV using regen B adds 4 BARS (~3.5 kWh). This implies the i-MiEV is about 70% efficient from battery to wheel/road, and the round trip back to the battery is about...

Replaced the cabin filter for $35 including tax; MM used a Mirage filter, which they said was the same.

Used it extensively from 1985 through 1994 or so. Now we have iMacs, MacBook Air, iPad, iPhones, ho hum...
