Hmm, didn't know they had a name for it. :roll:

Whinging - I thought they only called it that in Australia.

BTW, my community has waived all permitting fees for solar installs.

Re: Got Solar!

ed5000, congratulations! Most people I know had to wait far longer for PG&E to come out and install their new meter, all the while the old meter was not recording any benefit from the active solar for the owner. Good luck on figuring out an advantageous rate structure - https://www.pge.com/tarif...

Unexpected Turtle

The fellow to whom I sold my first i-MiEV has been racking up the miles, maximizing use of his HOV-lane sticker. Recently, he's had a strange issue, randomly occurring: When at around 4-5 bars and plenty of RR (around 20), the 'Turtle' light starts flickering, and goes away when he puts it into Neut...

Re: Need a longer range ev

Even though I agree that for this use-case (lovely chalet, BTW) a Volt would certainly be suitable and a most cost-effective selection, I can't let this comment pass unchallenged - ...In my area the places I take vacation to do not have infrastructure meaning any BEV is going to have a lot of range ...

Re: Mitsu Tech said I set car to not charge on Mondays

...Bonus: i have had weird chargging where the car will cut off the chargge after only 20 minutes or so. i sometimes use the remote to control the length of charging session, etc. It can exhibit some strange action such as cutting off early or chargging longer than i thought was programmed.

Re: How good is the car's range prediction

CZeroOwner, thank you very much for the plots - always fun to look at numbers and see how data is presented. First off, as you know the predictions are based on a moving average of the consumption of the preceding 24km (15 miles), excluding heating/aircon usage. Although heating reduces the displaye...

Re: Mitsu Tech said I set car to not charge on Mondays

logicalmethods, to answer your two questions: 1) Remote Control activity is stopped a number of ways - the one I remember is to simply activate the car and get to READY. I don't recall anything being stored that would affect charging, especially since you haven't used the Remote. 2) To further suppo...

Re: Battery Capacity Testing

...There are other reasons to believe that a natural log model best describes battery aging so with a bit of luck I will have a useable battery for some years to come. CZeroOwner, thank you for your graphs and analysis. Agree that the log line is perhaps a better approximation, which bodes well for...
