Do plug it in to recharge it.
Don't put petrol in it.

I think that covers the do's and dont's

Maybe add don't change the oil? :D

Re: What tire would you recommend?

When you wear a tire down from 10 or 11/32nds of tread down to 2 or 3/32nds, you've worn away around 1/4 inch of tread and the diameter of the tire is 1/2 inch smaller, which makes the circumference about an inch and a half smaller . . . . and that changes just about everything That's interesting. ...

Re: What tire would you recommend?

I just had 4 new Yokohama Avid Envigor tires installed on my car and wow are they quiet. I've had them now a month. The old Dulops Ensaves had just over 24,000 miles and would have been good for a little longer except the left front was tire wearing on the outside edge. I've been running the Dulops ...

Re: Gas Cans --> Electric Mowers

So, has anyone tried mounting a battery pack and inverter on an inexpensive plug-in mower? :roll: :mrgreen: :geek: I tried it with my Black and Decker plug in mower. It's an 18" mulching mower and these mowers have an universal type electric motor that has a rectifier. So I did an experiment a...

Re: Charging Down Route 66

I tried 3 different photo sharing sites and gave up. I joined Facebook and joined the Route 66 Electric Car Club. You can find most of our best photos there. Link?

Re: My Car is Only Charging Up to 12 Bars

After slow charging from two bars EVBatmon says I have a 36Ahr battery! An increase of 1 Ahr. At least I'm going in the right direction. :mrgreen:

The good thing is the new battery pack seems to last as long as my old pack or better.

Re: My Car is Only Charging Up to 12 Bars

Hmmmm, still says 35 Ahr and RR shows only 62 miles after a full charge. I usually get over 70 with original pack.

This weekend I'll bring it down to 2 bars and try a level one charge.
