Re: So Long, Sold, Leasing a PHEV

DogMan12, sorry to see you go, and thank you for you past contributions to the forum. I have yet to get myself down the Mitsu dealer to look at the Outlander PHEV and check out its regen options and towing capabilities.

Re: First post and first problem (12V Battery Short)

:D That was easy! (Whew!)

I moved this thread over to the Battery subforum and added a brief descriptor to the title so we could find it in the future.

Re: First post and first problem

Hi Leonard, and welcome to the forum. Two things come to mind with your 12v battery problem - 1. A shorted cell within the battery, the result being the dc-dc converter pumping loads of current into the other cells trying to bring them up. Result is heat generated by the good cells as well as the sh...

Re: Why is 240V 3x faster than 120V

At work on the Blink charger I get right around 3 bars per hour. At home on the Amazing-E I get about 3.2-3.3 bars an hour. That Blink station is probably running off three-phase and provides 208vac and not 240vac. That's why it charges slower than your home 240vac circuit. The Amazing-E has nothin...

Re: measuring capacity loss through CanIon

Barbagris, my fairly old STN1170 from AH Design works just fine using CaniOn v141 and gives me Ah reading. I WAS WRONG! What I was seeing was the stored Ah reading from previously using the OBDLink. No wonder my Ah reading had not changed for a year! :oops: I discovered this when I tried CaniOn on ...

Re: How Well Does My Remaining Range Compare With Other Older Cars?

veimi, that 120km number is very good and consistent with my wife's driving in town. Like iwatson, mine is usually much lower except when I'm hypermiling. I saw RR=82 the other day on a longer trip. I still defy anyone being able to predict their exact number upon charging completion. :)

Re: Head Rest

As many of you might recall, my least-favorite thing about the i-MiEV is the intrusive and obtrusive headrests. Not only do I usually have the back seats down (and thus the rear headrests stowed), but I take off the passenger-seat headrest as well, but do leave the driver's seat headrest in place. A...

Re: Does this belong to anyone?

If you look in the back and it has a couple of spare tires, jack and box full of adapters...then it's Joe's :lol: I did a double-take, but I have "100% Electric" on the front bumper and no license plate - and I haven't been up to that Chabot facility, but it looks like an interesting plac...
