Re: Problem Charging but it isn't the battery

Hi Joe, nice to hear from you. So my level 2 station at home is kind of unusual. The mitsu dealership that sold me the miev also sold me one of the two Eaton industrial level 2 chargers that mitsu North America forced all dealers to install. I can only remember one prior incident more than a year ag...

Re: Problem Charging but it isn't the battery

Hi Jay, Thanks very much for the response. So I ended up taking drastic action. I traded in my miev for a Kia Soul ev. They are offering 3 year leases for $179 and no money down. Too good to pass up. And the purchase option at the end of the 3 years is around $10k. Pulled the trigger today. It's qui...

Problem Charging but it isn't the battery

Hi all, it's been a long time since I've posted, but suddenly I'm having a major issue with charging. The car stops charging and the level 2 charger says charging complete even though it isn't. But if I either unplug and replug the the charger, or if I hit override all setting on the remote, chargin...

Re: Our Gas Free Miles Travelled

Hi all. It's been a long time since I've posted but I've been lurking and reading. Nice to see the devotion that still exists. I'm showing up today because today is my i Miev's birthday! Four years old today! 36,375 miles on the odometer. I seem to get a little less range than I used to, but nothing...

Re: Battery degradation

Really good news about battery degradation from Tesla: According to Saxton’s data, the S60 version, whose smaller battery must undergo more charge/discharge cycles to travel the same distance, retains 90 percent capacity to about 67,000 miles. Here is the entire article: http://www.greencarreports.c...

Handy online calculator

This website calculates your commuting cost and compares it to other cars. http://gis.its.ucdavis.edu/evexplorer/ It's very useful and the numbers are close to what I have calculated. You input your home address and work address and it will automatically calculate the "fuel" cost for 4 dif...

The comparison of horespower to maintain 70 mph would not have come from the wind tunnel test. I think it was thrown in to show "real world" effect of aerodynamics.

Comparison of Aerodynamics

I just came across this article that compares the aerodynamics of the Tesla model S, Nissan Leaf, Toyota Prius, Chevy Volt, Mercedes CLA 250 and a 2001 Honda Insight for Hybrid. http://www.greencarreports.com/news/1092373_aerodynamic-tesla-model-s-electric-car-wins-the-wind-tunnel-wars The Tesla did...

Re: Word directly from Mitsubishi on date of USA 2014 MiEV

just saw a 2014 in a dealer lot here in Albany NY. What was most noticeable to me was a different hubcap, no silver accent on the dashboard (all black, very pretty) and the leather accents on the shifter and the steering wheel. Also, the lettering along the shifter is now white instead of red, but i...
