Re: setting the clock display

Sorry, can't help. Ever since I missed a flight in London thinking that 11:00P stood for PM I've been happily using the 24-hr clock wherever possible.

Re: Better charging controls

jjlink, thank you very much for this timer suggestion - I've been looking for something like this 240v unit. In reading their manual, it looks as though their countdown feature seems to turn something ON instead of OFF at the end of the countdown.

Re: Better charging controls

MtnViewMark, thanks for posting. Sounds like another gadget not completely thought-through. Never want to turn something on only to have it turn off soon thereafter. Since the iMiEV (can't bring myself to calling it the "i") 120v EVSE limits the current to only 8A, I would imagine that per...

Re: Wraps

I rather like the iWoody wrap (having spent my teenage years in SoCal), especially as up close it looks like circuit-board traces (having a career in SiliconValley). Suspect that with time it will deteriorate. How hard is it to remove a modern wrap? How about something small and simple, like eyebrow...

Re: proud new owner of an 'i'

MtnViewMark: congratulations! When did you place your reservation, how long did it take for GeekSquad/Mr. Electric to 'inspect' your power source adequacy, and did you have a Level 2 EVSE installed? RickMaz: when you gently start applying the brakes, is there any modulation of the regen, or is regen...

Re: Warranty details & maint on the Mitsubishi i are now onl

I love this one: in 20 years, change the motor coolant and heater fluid! Being the original owner of my still-driveable 1967 Saab, I often wonder how the $50 lifetime engine warranty (which I didn't buy) would fare today. :lol: (note that Saab declared bankruptcy a few days ago and is throwing in th...

Re: proud new owner of an 'i'

RickMaz, thanks for the update. Interesting, as we're at the very beginnings of trying to correlate the anxiety meter (um, miles-remaining meter) with the fuel gauge. Ignoring the fuel gauge and simply looking at the miles remaining, it says you recovered 11 of the 12 (14?) miles you drove. On the o...

Re: proud new owner of an 'i'

Wow - a 1400ft climb - that's serious! I suspect that if you fully charge at home and then try to go down into town that the regen will stop at some point so as not to overcharge the battery (at least, I would hope that it would do this) and you'll actually start wearing down your brakes. Perhaps yo...

Re: proud new owner of an 'i'

RickMaz - Aloha! Nice photo - see you went for the full package and the island-sun appropriate color. Unless it's required in Hawaii that you have a front license plate, I'd be inclined to remove it for both aesthetics and a teeny bit of aerodynamic improvement as well :)

From - http://www.autoblog.com/2011/10/26/2012-mitsubishi-i-first-drive-review/ "How does that work? Well, the EPA measures electric vehicles using a two-cycle (city/highway) test and then subtracts 30 percent from these numbers to approximate "real world" driving. 70 percent of the i...
