Re: Power Hungry Vacuum Pump

I wonder why the old pump drew so many more amps.

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Used Electric Car Dealer

The unique thing about this seller (Rose Motorcars) is that they're a used car dealer but, the only thing they sell are used electric vehicles. Something I find refreshing. I've been by there and they have at least 50 electrics for sale of just about any modern make and model. https://sfbay.craigsl...

Re: i-bargains

ed5000, as you can see I moved your posts out of the other thread which had been generated by our admin to clarify the rules for posting for sale items. BTW, even though I moved them in here I don't consider them bargains as nowadays a bargain i-MiEV would be around $4K. This particular thread has ...

Re: Private For Sale Rules

Here's another 2012 i-miev for sale in white but with only 8004 miles on it for $6995 right here in my hometown. It looks like a base model but it does have quick charge. The unique thing about this seller (Rose Motorcars) is that they're a used car dealer but, the only thing they sell are used elec...

Re: Private For Sale Rules

Here's a Silver 2012 i-miev (almost exactly like mine), a base model i-miev with 32,700 miles in the South of Santa Rose, CA area for $5500. I can't tell if it has quick charge though. I'm tempted to get it and start my own i-miev fleet as others have done here. :lol: https://sfbay.craigslist.org/nb...

Re: An Article on Over Inflating Your Tires

Excellent find Don. Just replaced the stock tires with the Yokohama Avid Envigor and yes there is about a 10% REDUCTION in range. Tried different tire pressures but no significant difference. Thanks again for all you do to keep us informed and in line. Joe Did you take into consideration tire diame...

Re: Attached Garage Air Conditioner

Looks clean and professionally installed. The only thing I notice is the extra coiled up line set behind the compressor but that's okay. The system was pre-charged for that amount of copper anyway. What kind of connectors do they use for the line set?

Nice work! Thanks for showing us.

Re: Troubleshooting and repair for On-board Charger, DC-DC Converter

I have noticed in the past how warm the interior of my car gets while charging on L2 (I'd say about 90 degrees with the windows up) so I started using my home DIY upgraded Mitsubishi evse that someone posted about here last year where you change out a small power supply and the cord plug and and it ...
