Re: service at 24 month..how much should it cost?

I've had mine since spring of 2012 with over 36k miles and the only service I've had was the gearbox oil and one set of tires. I let the dealer do the service because I felt so guilty for all the warranty and recall notices I've come in for. I figured that I should at least pay once for my dealer vi...

Re: Mitsubishi iMiEV vs. Honda FitEV EPA Ratings

I read a Fit EV review that said that Honda used the engine from their fuel cell car that they have been experimenting with for years. Maybe they have better more efficient system. I would love to drive one; 700 lbs heavier but twice the power.

Re: Soon To Be a New MIEV Owner

It would be difficult and expensive to install a 50 amp circuit in most garages, and for this car it would also be a waste of money. You may never own a car with a 6.6Kw charger built in and even if you some day do buy one, a 30 amp circuit would charge it - Running the correct size wire for 50 amp...

Re: Soon To Be a New MIEV Owner

While we're on the topic of EVSE wiring I just ran 8 gauge wiring to a 50 amp 220 outlet in my garage because I picked up a new GE wattstation EVSE for $560 on e-bay. The GE is a 30 amp EVSE which the i doesn't need but what happens when my next EV has a 7200 watt charger? I would rather overbuild n...

Re: G.E. Wattstation & Nissan Leafs

I have a GE Wattstaion and it quits charging when I turn on the remote. At first I thought it wasn't compatible with the car, but turns out to be that stupi... little remote. The wattstation works fine. If, when you turn on your remote your wattstation stops charging turn on the remote again and it ...

Well.....I didn't get to charge at the airport and I lost my $3.00/hr parking stub. I saw a stub on the ground by my car and took it, assuming it was mine. then got charged $9.00 for 30 min. I would have come out ahead using the Hilton! :oops: As soon as I get my level 2 charger working I'll get my ...

FYI, Seattle Airport EV charging Stations

My friend told me that they had just installed EV charging stations on the 5th floor of the SEATAC parking garage. It just so happens that I needed to pick up the wife so I figured that I would go a little early and plug in the car. THE SEATAC CHARGING STATIONS CONSIST OF A 120V OUTLET!!! I was so u...

SPX Power Xpress problems

My SPX EL-50600 got soaked in the downpour over the weekend and now the Power LED is on but the Status LED is off. Does anyone know of any master reset other than the little reset button on top? I really don't want to send it in.....but, good thing I still have the SLOW Mistsubishi EVSE.

Re: SPX voltec charger on 110v?

I have a SPX Power express and it can be run off of 120v level 1 or 240v level 2. I bought the SPX because it was the only power supply, I could find, that could do both. revised: I spoke too soon..... The spec sheet for the SPX voltec lists input as 208/240v 15amps. Though it lists 95v-265v for a i...
