Re: Widening Takata airbag recall

MR BEAN's bag is being replaced Friday, supposedly a 30 minute while-I-wait procedure.

Re: Mechanical Timer for Charging?

Hi Nick, The pitiful 8A 120V Level 1 EVSE that we got here in the USA does well on pretty much any extension cord (I've used it on 100' of 14 gauge many times, but only if not coiled up to avoid hot spots.) Your L2 EVSE should use a 10 gauge extension cord, and then you'd be fine. A long as your tim...

Re: Widening Takata airbag recall

Thanks to Aerowhatt for that excellent explanation. I would've been more comfortable with early notice from Mitsu saying that the car is part of a recall occurring in several phases, with older cars being taken care of first, and that if we have any special considerations (like a carport with a trop...

Re: Our Gas Free Miles Travelled

Bit of a milestone here, as we're passing 69k on MR BEAN this week, which added to the 21k logged on our first (non CHaDEmo) i-MiEV makes over 90,000 i-miles travelled. We should pass 100,000 cumulative i-miles this year, and at the current usage rate, MR BEAN will become a centenarian all on his ow...

Re: Waste Heat

Thanks indeed. I've been enjoying the side effects of mounting a battery charger in the passenger compartment of JRAY's Golden Arrow (83 RX-7 conversion, PbA), which spent the winter outside. Charger heat keeps the windows clear on frosty mornings, and was even enough to melt up to 1" of snow o...

Re: Wheel is misshapen, tire leaks air slowly. What do i do?

The lugs ar 21mm, so that 13/16" socket should've been a smidge tight, but much better than rounding 'em off with an oversized wrench! 13/16"=20.6375mm

Re: Power consumption for balancing the battery ??

I'll offer MR BEAN as the extreme example- he's being run for maximum economic utilization. The car sat unused for a year after manufacture (likely at a high SOC) and has been charged to 100% just about every night since, with 100% midday charges about 3x per week, plus many CHAdeMO sessions. My rec...
