Re: Tesla Truck

I'd expect an adaptor to be provided for just moderate-speed truck charging, but the "Megacharger Network" appears to use a different connector than the Superchargers do. The charging inlet on the reveal trucks was just a bunch of irregularly-spaced holes drilled in a chunk of plastic, so ...

Re: Remote fob range extension?

. . . . IMO the features of the Pacifica outweigh those of the Mitsubishi even with the price differential. Others may differ in their opinion, neh? But . . . . one of them is made by FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automotive) and , IMO, that tips the scales quite a bit . . . . no? But . . . . The Pacifica is ...

Re: 240V Charging and Extension cables (Amazing-E)

Yes, you certainly want to avoid running a long extension cord through the house or landscaping. My cord is just to enable the EVSE to be positioned on a post central to four parking spaces (two in the garage, two outside). It runs under a protective curb. However, setting up your EVSE to be plug-co...

Re: Oh look another new i-MIEV owner!

The remote preheat function is much more effective if set to defrost rather than heat. Not sure why, but definitely the case.

Re: 2018 .. CA miev new concept car.. looks amazing

Yep, looks unchanged since 2013. https://www.caranddriver.com/news/mitsubishi-ca-miev-concept-photos-and-info-news Looks like convergent evolution with TESLA in the nose, with that forward slant. Anybody know how to characterize that aerodynamic approach of basically putting a splitter on the top fr...

Re: TPMS on i-MiEVs

Has anyone found a DIY tool to link the TPMS sensors to the car? I'm about to change wheels for the season and don't want to pay the dealer penalty, but would like to get rid of that annoying error light. Dunno if this is within the CarSoft i909 capabilities.... Ditto on the USA's lack of vehicle in...

Re: 240V Charging and Extension cables (Amazing-E)

Extending the cables is not dangerous if basic precautions are taken, especially since our cars only charge at 16 amps . My EVSE has been on a homebuilt extension cord (10 GA 3-wire) since 2011. On this forum, JoeS has got to be the adaptor king. Take a look at his collection. http://myimiev.com/for...

Re: 1 MONTH OWNER 2012 MIEV

I work for a City Transit Bus system. Glad to see this, iWatson; EV-owning transit operators have been a serious ally in getting King County Transit to pilot test and then place the largest North American order yet for ProTerra electric buses. http://www.kingcounty.gov/elected/executive/constantine...
