Re: iMiEV as workhorse

Thanks for sharing your enthusiasm for iMiEV firewood scavenging! :D I would never attempt to operate a 15 ampere electric saw that draws 1,700 watts continuously from an inverter attached to a car battery! I have melted home wiring and tripped 20 amp circuit breakers repeatedly when working with su...

Re: iMiEV as workhorse

Wow, those photos qualify you as a bonafide lumberjack! :D Does the electric cord peeking out from under the wood in the second photo mean that you bucked the logs using an electric saw? :?: Would love to see a photo of how the rear suspension/wheels/tires were riding under that extreme load. :o

Re: 12V battery BCI Size?

Big shout out :D to members of this forum for emphasizing the need to monitor the health of aging auxiliary batteries. Used a conductance tester to determine that our factory installed (December 2011) Yuasa battery was degraded by use, time, and temperature fluctuation. The vehicle never exhibited a...

Re: i-Miev armrest

I wrapped the base of the unmodified armrest with a single layer of duct tape and wedged it into the cupholder; in our experience following this simple installation procedure the armrest will bear elbow weight without shifting position. :D

Re: New I-MiEV's --- Maybe, maybe not

JoeS, Couldn't agree more with your assessment of the outstanding value represented by a new i-MiEV in today's marketplace. A dealer accepted our NADA clean retail price offer of $11, 995 for a new 2012 SE model last year resulting in a $5 net transaction profit to us after the $7,500 federal credit...

Re: What EV would you buy or lease if you were buying today?

Hi Oilerlord, Why not go all in and take your wife for a test drive in an i3? The screaming drivetrain, sumptuous interior, and refined telematics will win her over and you will have a wicked fun way to expend all of your excess kWh from the solar array! The ridiculously low acquisition and operatin...

Dashboard cupholder adapter

Use of the dashboard cupholders in the iMiEV for any object with a diameter larger than a soda can requires overcoming the dimensional constraints of the 2.5" x 2.5" square opening. An ideal solution which allows use of the front cupholders for large diameter drink bottles is provided by i...

Re: New Owner - Ben got an iMiEV - Again!

Hi bennelson, While the description of your road trip is immensely entertaining, a drama-free alternative for transporting a MiEV over long distances across state lines to or from a dealership which we have employed is hiring a car transporter service for door-to-door relocation from your home addre...
