Re: Poop-powered i-MiEV

Heh, well, I don't think they "created" anything but the paint job; it's just a regular i-MiEV. But, that's the beauty of electricity -- so many ways to generate it. ;)

Re: TPMS on i-MiEVs

2. On the BMW TPMS (which to be fair is all i've had experience with, but must be a fairly widespread system), a slightly deflated tyre gives an orange warning light on the dash, and a 'flat' gives a red (I think they permanently go orange when the battery goes low/ malfunction)... which means, in ...

Re: CHAdeMO Questions

Goofy. I haven't had a problem with my 2012, with at least four different models of CHAdeMO chargers . Edit: Ooh, I found this statement on the EVrus web site: "The EV Express 25 kW is equipped with a CHADeMo connector, which is common for Nissan Leaf, Kia EV Soul, Mitsubishi i-MiEV , Toyota RA...

Re: Nissan Leaf

On the contrary, to me this looks totally compatible with the trash-bagged cars we've seen.

Detaching the 12 volt

So, kinda basic, but... any advice for getting the bracket off of the positive terminal? I got the negative line off easily, and loosened the screw on the positive line so it turned left and right, but I couldn't get it to move up and off. I tried prying it up with a screwdriver a bit (saw someone d...

Re: Uhaul attacks my imiev

I'm the pessimist on these things, but I don't think that will be totalled. I can't even see any damage in that pic. I'm sure it's all scraped up, though.

Re: Spent the day driving a monster SUV

This big 15 mpg pig squeezed in 6 adults with more difficult access and egress, lower visibility and less cargo room than my Odyssey minivan. It was much slower off the line, much less efficient, and the steering must've been connected via bungee cord. Yeah, but the SUV is more "manly". N...

Re: Appraisal/Body Work Recommendations?

They're almost certainly going to declare it totalled. :(
