How do you track your charging?

I have been measuring the electricity every time I charge my electric vehicles and use the CurrentCost EnviR system with an Enerati Web Bridge. That way I can view my charging online wherever I am. There are definitely other people who do the same thing, what do you use? Kill-A-Watt? TED, The Energy...

Re: Plan ahead

Basically this is not a problem. It is more a hypothetical problem, but if you have driven your electric vehicle for even a couple of weeks, you know how much charge you need, what style of driving will get you there (if you are testing the range limits), etc. I speak with a lot of people about EV's...

Re: Electric cars are too annonymous!

Thanks! Actually, credit goes to Don for talking with this company to get it just right. Don has a white care, so the graphic blends in, but I think it looks nice on the Raspberry color to make it stand out a bit more. Send an email to info@dcvinlyandgraphics.com, and he can ship it out to you in sh...

Re: Electric cars are too annonymous!

Got my graphics on just in time for Earth Day season! A few of us EV drivers in North Jersey get together and show up at different Green/Eco fairs in the area. This will help my iMIEV stand out next to a Tesla roadster and a BMW Active-E. https://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn1/17913_73687563823...

Re: Any I Witnesses?

Two of my friends, including 1 colleague, own an iMIEV. So I have seen them either at their house or at work, but no sightings that are truly "in the wild" yet.
