Okay I got working at a pretty decent paying job here in Jersey. I'll be able to afford a proper ScanGauge fairly soon. Something worth noting last couple of days, in particular today; after I was driving around trying to see if I can catch a train on move.
Getting back into my town with my station I was going to take the later train, I'm on the main drag with two bars and estimated 10 Mi range remaining; and it goes into Turtle mode. Immediately it drops down to 25 miles an hour, then 20, and then 15. I pulled over to let the car behind me go by with hazards on, and then I was able to get power back but for only about a quarter mile and then it started to shut down again. It's still got two bars and about 7 to 9 miles range remaining, but it won't exceed 20 miles an hour.
The most interesting aspect of today is that it was above freezing, 33° Fahrenheit. Many nights in the last 2 weeks where the temperature has been about 20°F or just above, if I have half a battery, it limits me to about 45 miles an hour maximum. It goes into Turtle mode with half a battery if I press the pedal more than 30%. The battery has to be damaged.
I'm going to get an OBDII reader soon, but if somebody can take their shot at driving my car and prove me wrong I'll shut up about it.
