Re: Electric Car Review Talking Points

Speaking of heat pumps, I see over on the Hyundai Kona EV forum that Zelenec now has a Kona EV with one - http://www.mykonaev.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=40#p130 Back on topic - based on our i-MiEV experience with the ridiculously high-cost of modules such as the OBC, I'm wondering if replacem...

Re: dead charger

boscoe, glad to see you have your car back and that it's running. I love my i-MiEV, but I don't think I would have sprung for that amount to have it fixed.

Does that mean it still runs? If so, a piece of tape over the exclamation point i...

And keeping in mind that we talk our psyche, we do everything from the heart. Absolute legit, rough and unadulterated, Discover Siskiyou Tourism is the place Califo...

Hmm, didn't know they had a name for it. :roll:

Re: Got Solar!

ed5000, congratulations!
