Congrats Dale. Well, it does seem that spouses are sometimes the hardest of all to impress. Whether you go buy yourself something or await higher returns, she knows you just saved a bundle!

Re: i-MiEV Operating Savings Allowed Home Purchase

Good 'on ya, Ben Brown! You've been a valuable contributor to this forum for 4+ years now, and member content like your article is a great ingredient for revitalization of the Electric Auto Association! Having a low range EV as your sole transportation is quite challenging for most folks, but even l...

Re: Hi everyone....have two 2012 I-Mievs.....need help....

Dale, I recommend the iCarsoft i909 as a fine scan tool that can read and clear the codes from an i-MiEV. It costs $104 on Amazon. The tool is simple, but since it only has 6 buttons, is a bit slow and clunky to use (CaniOn is much better for individual cell voltages and temperature readings)- and t...

Re: Cost to replace an i-miev battery?

So sorry to see this condition for your wife. Continue taking care of her, and thanks for popping back in. If you do restart the battery project, hopefully some of us will have more info to contribute. Good Luck, Jay

Re: I bought a Chevy Bolt; i-MiEV For Sale Cheap

Heads Up, this scenario is likely to repeat soon. A Seattle owner with a 2012 SE Premium (white with blue decals) has only 33k miles, and is considering spending his TESLA stock profits on a Bolt. The i-MiEV has no problems- I replaced the OBC with a salvage unit prior to the recall. It does have a ...

Re: Cost to replace an i-miev battery?

Enginerd, glad to see that you're moving forward. I read that the project in Perth is having trouble in that the pack works and the car drives beautifully, but the additional capacity is not recognized because the car won't go past a 49 Ah discharge, regardless of cell voltages. That's interesting, ...

Re: Blink Charging Network

BLINK earned an awful reputation as a result of carpetbagging founders and the extended bankruptcy period with zero maintenance of the subpar equipment, but since the rush to repair before their IPO two years ago, it has definitely been the most reliable L2 and DCFC option in the Seattle region. The...

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, ...
