Re: i-MiEV Nightmare and seeking advice please?

Good to hear. As you acclimate to the car and as the car gets driven regularly, range should definitely improve.

Re: i-MiEV Nightmare and seeking advice please?

Hi, Michael. Congrats on the purchase, but sad to hear of less than stellar experiences. The first thing that comes to my mind regarding range is the tires. What size tires are on the front and rear? They should be smaller on the front. Second, when you take your foot off the throttle pedal in B mod...

Re: Possible Cooling System Problem??

My theories are a weak cell or a battery pack that’s been sitting a long time.

As for discharging without driving, running the heater would be the quickest way. It should automatically turn off when the turtle appears. Or, if you have a garage that needs dehumidified, park it inside and run the A/C.

Re: Global Warming's Terrifying New Math

Sadly, CO2 concentration is still climbing and is currently at 415.43 ppm, so a 2-month long 10-15% reduction in global emissions didn't make a measurable difference on the curve. Combine that with the fact that most environmental progress made hasn't kept up with total emissions, ever feel like you...

Re: Cost to replace an i-miev battery?

Anyone got first hand experience of a decent spot welder to put batteries together with Yes. I have a KWeld unit. Made in Germany and works really well. I bought it to build an eBike battery. Two pieces of advice: make sure the charge/discharge rates on the cells are compatible with the car (125 am...

Re: Global Warming's Terrifying New Math

So, with all the fanfare over COVID-19, what hasn't been making the news, for good or bad reasons, is the environmental benefit of shutting down much of China's manufacturing. While it's still too early to get a clear signal, CO2 concentration in the atmosphere has mostly leveled off at 414 ppm. The...

Re: The Magnet Hack?

I have my doubts given that amperage draw is driven by a PWM signal, which wouldn't change in the presence of a magnet.

Re: Add another OBC Failure

Just got Koorz back from the dealer. It tested good for them (which I was expecting) and fully charged without issue at home last night. I have it plugged into the same station at work to see if it stops before full charge again.

Re: FYI brake vacuum pump recall for early 2020

Just got this done on Koorz. Sounds the same, but it is a new pump.
