Re: measuring capacity loss through CanIon

Barbagris, my fairly old STN1170 from AH Design works just fine using CaniOn v141 and gives me Ah reading.

Toby, we're well aware of that and simply enjoy having a good laugh poking fun at Mitsubishi and their dealerships! :lol:

Re: Failed traction battery. How many weeks does Mitsubishi make you wait?

Oh for goodness sake! This is the first instance that I am aware of in North America that Mitsubishi has balked at the replacement of a defective battery pack. Of course, the negligible 12v power draw of the diesel heater has nothing to do with the main pack, as any competent professional engineer c...

Re: Future of Public EV Charging

Yes, I also got that 'invite' from Blink and rolled my eyes :roll: and didn't bother reading the prospectus. On the one hand we can criticize EVgo for their pricing and Blink for their ongoing broken hardware, but on the other hand what desperately-needed public EV charging model works without some ...

Re: EV prices in the next 3 years.

Naturally, we consider the i-MiEV far superior to the Smart, if for no other reason than because its interior is voluminous and thus it makes a great workhorse. Not to start a thread on this, but I am curious about how the two compare, in your opinion (apart from the DCQC, of course). We have many ...

Re: Mouse in the Miev!

OMG, leave the little guy some food right away so he doesn't pick on your wiring! A humane trap to capture and release would be my choice. My suspicion is that perhaps the mouse was carried into the car inside a box or other package, or perhaps you left a door or rear hatch open? I often have mice r...

Future of Public EV Charging

Somewhat related but where will public EV charging be in the next 3 years? It’s about $2/hour for L2 and around $15 for L3 here(more in winter due to slow charging). Not worth it for the MIEV unless you’re desperate. I’m even hearing that some of the L3 50kW stations are being throttled to 25-30, a...

Re: Outlander PHEV test drive report

...Mitsu has been way too conservative with the 1500 lb tow rating compared to 3500 lb for the V6... Jay, thanks for the writeup, but sorry to hear about it's diminished towing capacity. The only reason I've kept my Isuzu Trooper is that the little four-banger with its compound-low 4WD gearing has ...

Re: EV prices in the next 3 years.

I'm interested in buying a used i-Miev or Smart and I'm wondering how prices are going to change in the next 2 to 3 years....If I get into EVs now, and start saving fuel...How do you think the market prices for EVs are going to change in the next 3 years? This thread got a little off-topic, so I th...
