    Burned out wall receptacle and plug. ugh (JuiceBox 40)

    My commute to work is 96 miles roundtrip. All it takes to go over 100 miles in a day is to go out to lunch a few miles away, or run some errands (bank, shopping, etc). That said, I typically plug-in when the car gets below 20%, and I charge to 90%. I’ve never had an issue where charging...

    mach e vs chevy bolt euv - Thoughts???

    I owned a 2017 Blot EV for 4.5 years. Totally fun reliable commuter, and even a short road trip car. I now own a Premium RWD ER. Comparing the two cars is like comparing a Camry to a BMW 3 series. Or a Prius to a Miata. Totally different capabilities, driving dynamics/handling, and level of...

    ⏰ No Mach-E Scheduling Next Week (8/8)

    Good analysis. I predict they will hit the 200K sales trigger by the end of this month.

    Senate Bill Deal to Expand EV Tax Credits (7/27/2022)

    I would argue that the current scheme that we have has lasted for more than a decade with no limits. That alleged 200K limit? It's a trigger, not a cap. Manufacturers are free to sell as many as of their EVs as they can pump out after they hit the 200K trigger. So long as they do that in the...

    Senate Bill Deal to Expand EV Tax Credits (7/27/2022)

    That won't be the case forever. In 5 years, it could be MMEs, Teslas, Ariyas, Solterras, and a host of new cars just coming to market. And in 8 years it could be a Rivian, Lucid, or a Fisker.

    Senate Bill Deal to Expand EV Tax Credits (7/27/2022)

    I put it at 30 years or more. Average age of a car in the US fleet is 11.5 years. There’s some 268M light-duty passenger vehicles on the road. Between 16M and 17M are sold each year. So at current sales rates it would take between 16 and 17 years to replace every car, if, as you say, we bought...

    How to Enable Plug & Charge in 7 Steps

    Is there a way to link my existing EA account to FordPass/BlueOval? For my road trip this weekend, I went ahead and signed up for Plug and Charge and got added to the Blue Oval Network. Was able to use Plug and Charge with EA stations without a problem this past weekend on a road trip. Used up...

    MME vs Chevy Blazer EV

    I think the level of usefulness varies considerably with the size of the human that is sitting back there. and how many are back there. But yeah, I do agree that some of those third row seats are vestigial. Like I said, most of the time we leave ours down, but there have been times where we’ve...

    I seem to recall that the MME had the same fine print wording.

    MME vs Chevy Blazer EV

    Small SUVs are plenty useful. it all depends upon your specific personal use case. I had a ‘96 RAV4 for 9 years that was a great commuter and even worked as a road trip car. But once we got a minivan, that became the road trip car because we could put the kids in their own row and that cut down...

    MME vs Chevy Blazer EV

    I have a Highlander Hybrid with a third-row. It is classified as a mid-size SUV. Also the third row is not what I would exactly call comfortable for most people. I’m pretty short at 5’1” and I find it cramped. Most of the time we leave it folded down to maximize cargo capacity. And the way we...

    Stupid Physics Question

    California might have a decent amount of electricity from renewables, but it is nowhere near 70%. According to https://www.energy.ca.gov/data-reports/energy-almanac/california-electricity-data/2020-total-system-electric-generation it is closer to 45%. Even if you add nuclear, it only gets to...

    360 degree cameras retrofit install?

    60 extra pounds over that of the metal roof. Somehow I don’t think that’s gonna affect things that much.

    Is 16 Amps Sufficient to Enable Battery Cooling When Parked?

    According to my UPS, when the 65” Samsung TV is on, and the surround sound is going through the stereo receiver/Amp, I’m only pulling 1.5A.
