What Are Electric Car Owners Paying to Charge Their Cars?

What Are Electric Car Owners Paying to Charge Their Cars? I live in Toronto, Canada. My monthly household electricity bill includes a $26 CDN meter charge as well as delivery and time of day charges. If I charge between 7 p.m. and 7.a.m or on weekends the marginal kwh rate is 15 cents CDN per kwh. I...

What Is The Cabin Air Filter Actually Filtering?

After a rain storm, my new-used 2012 ES interior smelled a tiny bit like wet dog. Taking the cabin air filter out I found a significant amount of fine hair (dog hair?). I was able to clean it out, but my question is, where did it come from? It was my understanding that the cabin air filter was to el...

Thanks for the offer, but I had already downloaded CanIon and it didn't work with my existing ELM327 bluetooth OBD2 adapter or an Innova 3030 USB scangauge. I am going to have to...

Re: Battery Recalibration - When Does the Charger Turn Off?

You can unplug when you see 15 or 16 bars and skip this balancing process if you like . . . . it won't hurt anything Don Thanks for your replies. As I had ...

Battery Recalibration - When Does the Charger Turn Off?

This is my second charge on my new used 2012 ES. I drove it down to 2 bars to recalibrate it it using my Level 1 8A 120V EVSE. After 16 hours of charging, there are 16 bars, but both the red dash charging light and the orange EVSE light are lit indicating that charging is still occurring. I was wond...

Look What You Guys on This Forum Made Me Do!

Retired Electrical Engineer here. I always wanted an electric car. No special reason, just for fun. Two years ago I investigated buying a new 2014 smart ED $19,000 Canadian dollars all in, taxes, delivery, rebates, incentives included. I almost bought one, but I already owned a 2005 smart diesel Cab...
