Re: Care and Feeding of the OBC/dc-dc

Mitsu tested things for the way that they suggest they be used. So as long as one is starting and stopping charging in the ways supplied and suggested in the manual, then things should be alright. There are externals like line surges and spikes, power outages, etc., that the system must absorb rarel...

Re: Will not preheat when fully charged.

New owner still figuring out the many quirks and features :lol: . My preheat and whatnot seems to work as intended while the car is charging(120v standard charger) but not once fully charged (still plugged in). I unplugged and fiddled around a bit with it. Plugged it back in. Charge light goes on. ...

Re: Spare Wheels

I just thought I would update this old thread with some new information. I've been carrying around the 2013 Honda Fit spare tire for three years and unfortunately we finally needed to use it (The wheel is stamped 15x4T, tire size T135/80D15 . . . 60 psi) . My wife came home last Friday evening with ...

Re: Regen vs Neutral and speed for max range

A couple of procedural questions: 1. Do you push the button on your Android device to take screen snapshots of the CaniOn display during your trip or do you employ some other technique to record and subsequently display the CaniOn information? 2. How did you produce that great altitude and speed vs...

Re: Regen vs Neutral and speed for max range

Is the bottom part of the hill (between mile 5 to 17) on an interstate? It seems that going 60-67 mph uphill would be using a huge amount of energy. Of course it doesn't really matter too much because you know you can always coast or regen as necessary to make it back home--but what an awesome clim...

Re: Regen vs Neutral and speed for max range

You went up the hill and used X amount. You regenerated going down the hill at about the same speed and got a little less than 1/3rd of the amount of energy you used climbing the hill back by regenning. I understand that part and agree the return is certainly less than we would like . . . . but it ...

Re: Regen vs Neutral and speed for max range

I'm sorry if my conviction level hit you wrong Joes. I get frustrated with supposition being held up against fact. For people who are not tech savvy, really can't see the difference. I appreciate your clarification of your viewpoint on the most efficient way to drive. Enclosed is a dizzying amount o...

I'm providing a proposed conclusion born of extensive data collection which all matches up well. http://myimiev.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=287&p=36475#p36475 You are putting forth a supposition based on your convictions only. I invite you to take it to the street and find this mythical h...

Re: Regen vs Neutral and speed for max range

b) All other constraints aside , arriving a the bottom of the hill while continuously regenerating will result in a higher battery State of Charge than coasting down the hill exclusively in Neutral; ergo, in ideal conditions, I contend that we can go further regenerating instead of coasting in N. I...
