Re: Hypermiling the i-MiEV

I measured regen efficiency several times uses two i-MiEV cars. When the front i-MiEV, going 30 mph, uses 8 BARS (~7 kWh) the towed i-MiEV using regen B adds 4 BARS (~3.5 kWh). This implies the i-MiEV is about 70% efficient from battery to wheel/road, and the round trip back to the battery is about ...

Re: Hatched a Tesla. Same Here, X90D

I seem to be following in JoeS' footsteps. After five years of daily driving my beloved i-MiEV (and my brother buying two new ones), last month I bought a new Tesla, X90D. The i-MiEV is still my daily driver, since the Tesla is really my wife's car. We ordered the Tesla in 2014, two and a half years...

Re: charging cable pulled out when car started moving

... My solution is a " board stop ". The Board Stop was my solution until I resurfaced my concrete driveway. The driveway looked so nice and I was tried of tripping over the Board Stop. Yesterday, I ripped out the J1772 car inlet port. . - http://i1063.photobucket.com/albums/t510/lesseyfa...

To get there we may need to replace a few weak cells. After the warranty expires garages will start replacing ce...
