Re: Is it better for the battery to charge at 120 or 240?

i heard that it is impossible to charge to 100%. The i-miev is engineered to actually charge the batteries to abotu 80% even when the meter says 100%, as a way to prolong battery life.

Is it better for the battery to charge at 120 or 240?

I heard that quick DC charging is the worst for the battery. But what about these slower methods?

I finally found a smart tire guy who took the tire off and pounded the wheel into a better shape. It's been 6 months and no air leakage!

UPDATE: I took the car to a tire guy. He took the tire off and using a heavy hammer he banged the wheel into better roundness. Since then (over a month ago) the tire has held the air. He didn't even charge me anything. Amazing.

Raccoons like my Miev

I have 3 cars in my driveway. My miev, a prius hybrid and a civic gas car. I noticed that a family of raccoons regularly like to hang out underneath the miev, but never under the other two cars. It doesn't matter where i position the cars, the raccoons always choose the miev to hang out under. Is th...

Re: Miles per Bar/ Range discussions

When getting low on bars resist the temptation to get to your destination in a hurry. Instead, remember that the slower you go the farther you will go. The i-miev gets the most mpge at around 20 mph. Yeah, it seems like a crawl but it may get you back home where otherwise you're in the middle of now...

Wheel is misshapen, tire leaks air slowly. What do i do?

I bought the Miev used, so i wasn't involved in the incident, but at one point the wheel hit something and now it is a bit deformed. The car drives well except at high speed and then it just doesn't sound real smooth, although it handles fine. Also, I seem to have to fill the tire up with air every ...
