Re: Marketing the USED I-MIEV

I see your ad and I have a couple of comments.... 1 - if someone offers you anywhere near your asking price and you say no, send them my way, I'll sell mine in a blink and just go buy 2 or 3 more. 2 - I'm in Duncan bc right now. I have seen more EV's here in one day than my entire life previously. T...

Re: Fuel tank for diesel heater

Well, and that's what I was wondering. I thought I read somewhere it heats the water to 80 degrees C and then drops to low. Not sure what temp it kicks back in at. On mine there is no option to manually run it on low. Its on or off and that's it. Well it has a pump-only mode for circulating with the...

Fuel tank for diesel heater

Now that my heater has arrived, I have been contemplating fuel tanks. For convenience I would like the absolute largest tank I can fit. For those of you running a fuel heater, how big is your tank and where did you put it? I have seen the video where the tank is just zip tied under the hood. That ta...

Re: CAN messages for pre-heat / cool and charge start/stop delays

I would be interested. How many times did you cycle the def on and off during logging? The guys I talk to in the can world like to see it repeated 5x on the log to help them parse it out. On the flip side, remote start also works while plugged in and climate control will come on to whatever it was s...

Check that the instrument cluster dimmer is turned up?

Re: Troubleshooting and repair for On-board Charger (OBC), DC-DC Converter

This is such great news! A comment about pulling the AC out with no shutdown command..... I am certain there are people that do this every day. I know people who run their chargers on a timer. Except the timer is on the house circuit and cuts the power to the evse. So these cars get this immediate l...

Re: Upgrading the heating system to bioethanol or Diesel fuel

I purchased a heater without a timer. It is only an on/off switch. I specifically did that so I could trigger with just a basic connection. Granted the heater hasn't arrived yet to confirm, but if it turns on with a basic switch then worst case I add a relayed output to the alarm. We get very cold. ...

Re: Upgrading the heating system to bioethanol or Diesel fuel

Nice! That looks like it should do the job just fine. How are you turning on the heater itself? Timer? I think I am going to use my aftermarket alarm / remote engine starter will cell phone control. The remote reaches around 4000 feet and the cell control is of course virtually limitless. Then an au...

Re: Diagnostic battery before buy

I can say that EVbatMon works good on my pixel XL with OBDlinkmx. Canion is virtually unusable on my phone. Connects for a few seconds then disconnects. Does this over and over. I purchased EVbatMon to check the car I was buying as well. I had no experience or much for knowledge but it showed things...
