Re: Connector/charger problems.

60 miles with any degree of heat? Nothing wrong with the battery!

Re: Chevy Bolt production version

I don't know, 7,500 miles to rotate the tires seems perfectly reasonable to me and not pandering to the dealers ;)

Re: Connector/charger problems.

As far as #1 goes, @ 77K miles I would be expecting around a 20% loss of capacity. On the other hand, @ 1 mile remaining on the range meter there is typically still 10-12% capacity in the pack so putting 13 Kwh back in is not bad. FWIW, my 2012 with now 16,400 miles (same age, less miles and age cou...

Re: Connector/charger problems.

Other day, with less than 2 miles on the RR, I could charge only 13 KW/h. What does this mean? Is that a level 3 charge that only went to 13Kw / h or a level 1 or 2 that only charge to 13 Kw? If the former that is a symptom of a tired battery with rising internal resistance. If your car charges fin...

Re: Upgrading the heating system to bioethanol or Diesel fuel

I actually consider the electric to heat water system pretty efficient, it transfers the heat very fast from a cold start. It is the direct conversion of electrical power to heat via resistance that is less efficient.

Re: Charging timer

I agree some customers could be interested in the feature. I'm not doubting what you're saying, I just can't imagine that such an insignificant feature would cause a no sale. Now the pre-heat and pre-cool function, those are definitely a home run but still wouldn't cause me to not buy the car if it...

Re: Charging timer

In some areas of the country the difference in rates is massive, as in less than 1/2. Said customers would be very interested in such a feature, could be the difference between a sale and no sale...
