I would think this is still on-topic. Heated seats are about the best thing going for helping winter range (for me, it all but eliminates the need for cabin heat when combined with remote pre-heating).
Actually, I'm pretty sure I'm wrong here - The computer seems to keep track of the HVAC energy separately. With our current 90+ days, I'm driving with the A/C on all the time and still get RR's of 75 to 80 after a recharge (if I shut off the A/C to check the number) and then when I turn on the A/C after a full recharge, I lose about 10 miles of RR immediately when I switch it on. No way I would be seeing 80 miles RR after a recharge if the A/C energy was part of the computationDon wrote:Remember, the RR number you get after a full recharge is mostly affected by what happened in the last 15 miles of driving immediately before you recharged - If you were using the climate controls during those 15 miles, your new RR number will be lower than it would be if you were using no climate control
Will it show wheelspeed . . . . or does the speedo run off a front wheel? With my old Corvairs, (VW's too?) the speedo was driven off the drivers side front wheel. On the iMiEV's with the ABS sensors on every wheel, they could be using any one they chosejray3 wrote:If I'm really diligent, I'll jack the car up in freezing temps, press the accelerator and measure the amps vs wheelspeed, then do the same after heating the oil...

i wouldn't press accelerator, just measure the current in gear when it goes into creep mode.
