Re: Fuel tank for diesel heater

Some times to initiate the heater mode you need to move the temperature setting into the red for 10 seconds and then move it back to the green neutral position to get the diesel action in motion.

Re: found ... GHW-M002 EV Remote

Re: Ultra cold weather range

I parked my 2012 - i Miev outside (2 winters) so it did get cold soaked overnight . When it was colder than -20 C I left it plugged in all night and would do two 1/.2 hr pre-heat sessions on defrost just before my departure.

Re: 1,193 mile i-Miev trip finished!

Hi rkarl89203
Congratulations on completing another long distance trip.

What was your most distance in 1 day that you drove?
Did you do any multiple back to back (L3) fast charging?
If so how did the car react ?

Re: Range/Battery Degradation ??

Hi rkar189203,
What kind of mileage have racked up after 4 years and that route 66 trip? This 1,000 mile trip should be a walk in the park for you.
I'll be interested to hear your impressions in comparing the i Miev's performance of these 2 trips.
Keep us posted.
