Re: GENTLEMEN. I need help.

Mievo, great news that your car's battery *appears* to be ok! Did the receipt you received from the dealer provide any details of what had been done to your car? Enquiring minds would like to know :geek: . Be sure to hang onto the paperwork just in case a problem develops in the future. With a five-...

Re: Charging Down Route 66

Rick had started a new thread to celebrate his successful completion of the Route 66 round-trip. Being concerned that the two threads would separate over time, I've merged the two. Rick's last day's mileage was 137 miles (per PM to me). The longest single-day's distance was 186 miles. Trip Data Spre...

Fantastic achievement and a tribute to your patience and tenacity!

Yeah, we all knew our great little car would make it with no problems, and delighted you didn't even get a flat tire.8-)

Re: Routeplanning: RV 27 Rondevegen over Venabygdsfjellet (Ringebu@E6 - Hanestad@RV 3)

elekTrond, thanks for posting. I like that routeplanner! My initial thoughts - 1. What a beautiful venue for an excursion! 2. The good news is that you should be able to travel as slowly as you wish 3. Don't even think of starting out without 100%SoC; try to figure out a less-expensive charging sche...

Re: Regen vs Neutral and speed for max range

Aerowhatt, thanks for doing the drag comparison. Hey, the only reason for this whole discussion is the aerodynamic drag effect! Well, I've been totally unsuccessful in trying to get any meaningful data by trying to keep the accelerator in a constant position and a constant speed. The combination of ...

Re: CHADEMO charge failure

...Looking on PlugShare, there is one unit in the town of Port Angeles, and that is an EVGo-looking unit (labeled Chargion) at Dan Wilder Nissan. The next closest unit appears to be Silverdale, WA. The one at the Nissan dealer is undoubtedly the one eldenh is talking about. At 69 miles, Silverdale ...
