Re: Shore Trip

To demonstrate your hypermiling skills and gather confidence in your abilities, how about posting a photo of your full-charge RR>90 . For example: http://www.katiekat.net/Vehicles/Mitsi/MitsiRR96.jpg bradleydavidgood777, Don and I have given you a couple of options (challenges?) to quantitatively p...

Re: Shore Trip

Study the graph below (created by jumpjack) to get an idea of what you might optimally be able to do. Takes self-discipline to always featherfoot and travel well below the speed limit for the entire trip. It's nice that you can travel the side roads and not the Interstate. https://autoguida.files.wo...

Re: Shore Trip

Don't even think of it, as one-way 88.5 miles will damage your psyche. :) Check PlugShare, as you have a number of charging spots to help you out along the way. There's only one CHAdeMO (at a Nissan dealer), so plan on this being a half-day trip. Do you have the appropriate charging cards?

Re: Charging Nit Pick

kiev, I agree with you, and it can be classed as a convenience feature. It is barely possible to make out the charge level (and the red glow showing the car is charging ) if the side windows are not heavily tinted. There's always the Remote, but I sure wish they made the Remote display % SoC instead...

Re: Cost to charge at home

I just called The Energy Coop and got onto an ECO national plan (all wind) fixed rate of 0.1049 for 12 months. That's more realistic! So, does that $.1049 rate include generation and distribution? In California, we also have per-kWh charges for stuff like Transmission (separate from Distribution), ...

blackheart, I just sent you a PM. Reply to that one.

Next, click on the PM icon (on the left where it says Contact) and see if you can send me a PM from this thread.

Thanks.

Re: Cost to charge at home

Full charge cost can be misleading - a better common-denominator is fuel cost per mile. Looking up electricity rates for Media, PA, I am shocked as to how LOW they are! :shock: https://power2switch.com/PA/Media / Let's pick a nominal number from that list: $0.075/kWh Now, driving your i-MiEV without...

Re: How to protect your EVSE from theft

For our i-MiEV I've found it easiest to simply leave the EVSE in the back of the car and bring out the two cables through the back window.
