Re: Two Months and Two Thousand Miles

*ahem* Three months and... 4,011 miles! Not really trying to play a game of one-up-manship, though. I only want to second Joe's post: We've been using this as our primary vehicle (clearly rather a lot!) and we are just in love with it. It is a perfect daily duty car, getting our kids to school and e...

Re: Two Charging rates of the Eaton Charger

So they don't rate the charger based on KwH but instead on amps. Somebody who knows how to make the conversion could figure out which Eaton charger they are talking about. watts / volts = amps So, 3.6kW / 240v = 15A. Mind you, I'm pretty sure none of us have seen the car pull quite that much. It se...

Re: Two Charging rates of the Eaton Charger

Remember that the i will pull at most 13A So installing a 40A circuit, or a 30A EVSE is overkill. The "Advanced Cord Management" is... wait for it... a HOOK and a null-receptacle for the plug! You can see it on the Eaton web site . Sheesh! How much do they want for the unit and it's "...

Re: A Month of Driving Electric

I've updated the blog post. Turns out with ChargePoint, which is all our not-at-home charging, you can get a report of your charging kWh!

A Month of Driving Electric

tl;dr - We drove 1,278 miles in our i-MiEV in February, and saved $90.99 over what we would have spent on fuel.

Re: sign and pay before delivery?

That dealer's actions sound highly suspicious. You should call Mitsubishi corporate and discuss it with them.

Re: CUSTOMIZATION FUNCTIONS M.U.T.-III ETACS Horn, Buzzer..

That's wonderful stuff - now do we know how to get at those settings? Can one get an ETACS control unit? Is a M.U.T.-III something only a dealer has?

Re: San Francisco BayMiEVers

Sounds lovely - we're interested - but with two small kids I can never be sure of when will work!

Re: brand new I MIEV

we could meet and all caravan to someplace like Hobee's for lunch on a weekend. It would be fun to line 'em all up in the parking lot!

(and, well, obviously I like the idea of meeting in Mtn. View!)

Re: New Mitsubishi Approved Level 2 EVSE

Two thoughts: 1) Pretty much any level 2 charger will work with the i. There is no real "approval" needed.[*] Here are four you can just order from Home Depot. 2) The hard part of the install is getting a dedicated 240v circuit to where you want the EVSE, but any licensed electrician can d...
