Re: 97 miles on single charge with 2012 Mitsubishi iMiEV (US model)

Route consideration is super important too. All the data I have been referring to so far. The routes start and end point are at the same location. More importantly the elevation change total is 0 ft for the round trip even if I climb do 5000 ft and then roll back down it. I did head towards Santa Fe...

Re: 97 miles on single charge with 2012 Mitsubishi iMiEV (US model)

Bradley's questions are hard to answer- but we can be confident that the driving mode makes absolutely no difference in energy use during steady-state cruising, it only differs during acceleration and deceleration. But it does matter. If you have canion get mi/kWh (not summary, but instant) on one ...

Re: 97 miles on single charge with 2012 Mitsubishi iMiEV (US model)

Cool! I've often thought that N was a good option for downhill. Doesn't make sense to me to brake even if recharging. It depends on the circumstances. If you need to go slower than the grade allows for than coasting in N then you should definitely be in a drive mode. I use D for two reasons. I get ...

. . . . and done completely in 'B' Mode you will note - For those here who say this isn't the most efficient way to drive . . . . well, he should be able to do well over a hundred miles if he was using whatever mode you *think* is most efficient, huh? :lol: Don Absolutely! I'm confident I could bea...

Re: Maintenance of gearbox ....

I'm confused: GRynners, are you saying that there was some slop in the geartrain that is now dampened after the oil change, or is there a different meaning to "a little jerky on take up"? Anyone else do the gearbox oil change and notice any difference? I just recently changed it on both o...

Re: Peugeot Ion not charging with high AC voltage

Good data, thank you. Inasmuch as my neighbor and I are at the end of the line and each of us has >11kW(ac) solar, our grid voltage regularly goes up over 250vac. I replaced a solar inverter that did not tolerate >256vac, but the i-MiEV has never hiccuped. Hmm that's interesting . . . perhaps it's ...

Re: Riversimple and Fuel Cell Discussions

Judging by some of the scattered projects capturing methane being produced by bio-waste, landfills, sewage treatment, live stock manure, and other ancillary "natural" sources, do we even need to be drilling for gas? Fuel cells offer distributed generation of electricity that can be scaled ...

Re: Riversimple and Fuel Cell Discussions

Yeah, one doesn't have to look very deep into natural gas production and use to see that it is no less fraught with problems and environment issues equal to coal, nuclear, oil and all of it's refined products. It's being sold as a better alternative because there is money in it for someone. IMO the ...

Re: Riversimple and Fuel Cell Discussions

I couldn't agree more, but tell that to the millions that want it and Pruitt. . . . Current Natural gas distribution networks leak like a sieve. Hydrogen molecules are smaller than methane by quite a bit = faster leakage. . . . . .Go Hazer's solution go! Aerowhatt That leakage is measurable? Causat...

Re: Riversimple and Fuel Cell Discussions

My issue with Hydrogen is, that even with Hazer's solution, it doesn't address the consumption of natural gas in the first place. Given that I live right in the middle of the Marcellus shale madness, putting wells in and fracking causes a great deal of emissions before any gas even comes out of the...
