Re: i-bargains

Here's what my last auction purchase from IAAI ran. (Insurance Auto Auctions Inc). IAAI and CoPart are the two main players nationally. I'm still happy with the buy, as it was a 2014 with low miles and three good alloy wheels n tires. Lotsa labor in pulling and sending out parts to recoup the cost, ...

Re: Replace Low Beam (H11) Head Light Bulbs

... Only 14 Watts versus 55 apiece for halogen, so that's a continuous daytime load reduction of 82 Watts, or about one mile of added range per driving hour... :roll: LOL, who ever drives their car for more than an hour at one time..? DOH- basic math error on my part. 82 watt/hrs saved per hr at, s...

Re: Replace Low Beam (H11) Head Light Bulbs

After 110k miles I finally had a low beam burn out. Replaced both of them with Sylvania Zevo H11 LED "fog lamps" at $99 for the pair. https://www.sylvania-automotive.com/products/headlights-and-fog-lights/zevo/h11_zevo_fog.jsp Easy plug and play swap, as there's loads of room inside the ho...

Re: i-bargains

Salvage auction values are remaining strong. I watched a totaled 2012 Raspberry go for $2550 this morning. It had hood, front bumper and headlight damage.

Re: i-MiEV Trailer Hitch Wanted

I exhausted my appeals to Torklift to produce a few more hitches. I believe when they claim to have scrapped the jigs, but “threw out the drawings”?!! Anyway, the lightweight design posted here by a user years ago should be good for bicycles and light towing, but it’d take replication or a quality c...

Re: i-MiEV Trailer Hitch Wanted

Thx Joe, I spoke with the production foreman and am awaiting a response. He did recall several previous requests to restart this hitch, and should get back to me tomorrow. I told him all 2012 models with 2" receiver. I don't believe there were any differences in 2012-16, do you?

Re: i-MiEV Trailer Hitch Wanted

Excellent idea, Joe. I’m about to buy a Model S hitch from Torklift, am local and have dealt with them directly before, so would be happy to echo your efforts or just walk in with the offer myself.

Re: MCU 20A 450VDC fuse investigation

I was wrong when I initially thought the LEAF ignored the J1772 plug's push-button. It does indeed immediately and electronically (i.e. safely) ramp the charge current down to zero when the button is pressed. It's just that there is absolutely no indication that anything has changed; the blue LEDs ...

Re: It Has Arrived!

Congrats Ed, We'd love to hear the batt stats after a year of hibernating, and at what SOC did it sleep? Also if you don't mind, how much did the cross-country shipping set you back? I'm bringing in a Transit Connect Electric from Missouri to Seattle right now, and it was a challenge to gitrdone bel...
