Re: ASC and Neutral

FiddlerJohn, thanks for that ASC post. I think it answers my question. It appears that the ASC system does, under certain conditions, decrease the power to the driving wheels, which implies that D must be engaged (and not Neutral) in order for it to do its magic. Have to wonder if that power decreas...

ASC and Neutral

Let me start off by saying that I consider the handling characteristics of the iMiEV to be very good and I have no problem tossing the car around while maintaining full control. The low CG of the battery and having it centered in the car certainly contributes to this solid and predictable feeling. T...

Re: After-market rear view camera?

The built-in rear-view camera system in the Leaf provides not only the view but dotted lines providing depth, with the lines shifting as the steering wheel is turned. Very nice! I also opted NOT to get the center display console with my iMiEV as I thought it was overpriced. In one of my EV Sparrows ...

Re: Mitsubishi i-Miev Interior Shot

Onto that plastic plate I was thinking of sticking on a large Velcro™ loop patch and using it to hold a cupholder or armrest or storage bin. :roll:

Re: Quantifying Regeneration

http://www.engineeringtv.com/video/In-Bluetooth-Adapter-Android-Me Way cool! Yes, would also like to see the app migration to iOS/OSX. Datalogging would sure be nice. Back on topic: would like to find a nice place to clamp the CT onto a battery cable and run the (small) wires into the cockpit where...

Re: Hypermiling the i-MiEV

Hi oahumiev - congrats on the solar! ... I'm interested in hypermiling to extend range when visiting family on the opposite side of the island which is about a 50+ mile roundtrip. Ah, no problem: simply offer your family a couple of dollars to plug in when visiting them. Since you can keep your spee...

Re: Hypermiling the i-MiEV

oahumiev, stand by, as properly utilizing Neutral is a pivotal aspect of hypermiling the iMiEV. There are a number of considerations, including the warnings in the owner's manual. We'll be discussing this in time and I plan on starting a separate thread on just this topic. In the meantime, have you ...

Quantifying Regeneration and Consumption

The question on the table is: what is the maximum regeneration in the iMiEV relative to the maximum power draw? http://www.katiekat.net/Vehicles/Mitsi/EcoGauge.jpg This gauge seems to be nothing more than a damped analog ammeter with a pretty background, showing colors instead of numbers. Maximum po...

Re: Survey: PayPal deposit of $299 for the car, refund.

Yesterday, March 5, Mitsubishi called back and said that my full refund request had been approved and they would be reimbursing the full amount and expect to see it posted to my account in the next 5-7 working days. Nice! :D

Re: A Month of Driving Electric

MtnViewMark - thank you for posting your data. We intuitively recognize that cost/mile of our iMiEVs is significantly lower than even the most economical hybrid (and that goes for the Volt as well) - especially with our gasoline prices presently hovering around $4.50/gallon. I find that my iMiEV dra...
