Re: FS: 2012 I-MIEV SE $5000

Wait. I hope this guy sells his i-MiEV too but didn't I post one with over 30,000 fewer miles last month for only $900 more? By golly, I believe you did! A few minor differences - While your car has fewer miles, this car has a new traction battery, only 2 1/2 years old. He has the remote (an expens...

Re: Shore Trip

Stan's car was new - It will go farther than your car will. Stan also had an abundance of talent not found in the average EV driver If you think you're a pretty good hypermiler, I would first try proving it to yourself by driving 50 miles and still having 30 miles (or more) left on the RR display, r...

Re: Charging Nit Pick

Yup - A blinking LED on the dash like the Volt has would have been a nice 50 cent addition

Re: Cost to charge at home

That's pretty close to what we pay - 11 cents. Ours comes from a co-op and there's nothing else added. Comes out to pretty close to 2.5 cents per mile for 'fuel' For ICE costs - I usually quote 10 cents per mile. $2.50 gas in a 25 mpg car, $3.00 gas in a 30 mpg car . . . . comes out about the same, ...

Re: 97 miles on single charge with 2012 Mitsubishi iMiEV (US model)

. . . . and done completely in 'B' Mode you will note - For those here who say this isn't the most efficient way to drive . . . . well, he should be able to do well over a hundred miles if he was using whatever mode you *think* is most efficient, huh? :lol:

Re: Pretty Good Level 2 EVSE for Less Than $200

umm, mine does not work that way. When I plug in the 6-20 plug to the outlet without plugging into the car, the Ready/Charge light is off, only the power light is on. I think mine is the same. I never unplug it, so my power light is always on. Before plugging in the charge handle, I have just the P...

Re: Pretty Good Level 2 EVSE for Less Than $200

Mine does shut off - The 'Charge/Ready' light goes from sold green (charging) To flashing green (ready) once the car is full

Re: Pretty Good Level 2 EVSE for Less Than $200

One thing I noticed is that I think this 240v EVSE does not have auto shut off after the car battery is full. I only charged the car to full once using the OEM EVSE, but I remember the charge light turned off automatically when the car is full. This 240v EVSE does not turn off the charge light unti...

Re: Best charging practices

IMO, every other day is ideal . . . . but doing that may leave you getting a bit short on some of those alternate days, especially in the winter and that's not good. Use discretion and maybe give it a little bump before you leave home on those second mornings while you have your coffee :D

Re: Customising your wheels and tires

You didn't change the wheelbase at all - It's still stock What you did change (and by LOT) is the track width - You must have all 4 tires sticking out way past the fenders When you change the track width, you mess up the scrub radius and there's no adjustment to correct for that. When you turn the f...
