  1. ICEV most like to see as BEV?

    Mach E charging speed (or better), range, and at least single motor performance in the Honda Fit package*... so a bolt ev that doesn't suck. I'm not sure it'd be physically possible. The battery in the MME weighs more than half what the fit does. They'd need a lot more efficient mi/kwh numbers...
  2. From SVS to SSN - The Tejon Pass Claims Another MME

    You'll have to excuse me for not being Californian enough to know -- are those roads hilly, flat, or midwest flat. Asking for a friend.
  3. Charging Woes

    https://quick220.com/products/model-a220-15d-for-equipment-with-us-canadian-plugs Note: I am not recommending this product, nor stating that you should use it. This post is for informational purposes only. I had an electrician upgrade a pre-existing 240 V into a NEMA 14-50... and he spotted...
  4. Inconsistency loading driver profiles?

    Disagree on this one. Need to get in the car, parallel parked, with traffic? Hit the button and go to get in and can't because it is busy moving the seat forward to the wrong profile is potentially dangerous because it delays you getting in and the door shut. For the OP: same issues. In some...
  5. Senate Bill Deal to Expand EV Tax Credits (7/27/2022)

    Well in that case this should be obvious. Have you looked at pollution in Chinese cities? Forcing production to places where there's something resembling an EPA (eg, US & free trade partners) is going to force battery manufacturing to be cleaner. So you actually do get something in exchange for...
  6. Senate Bill Deal to Expand EV Tax Credits (7/27/2022)

    The studies of it I'd seen, and to be fair they clearly haven't had a lot of time to look at it, were estimating it'd return 4x benefits vs the cost. That's a pretty good rate of returning for forcing billion-dollar corporations to pay their share of taxes via a minimum tax finally. I'm sure...
  7. Yes, Virginia, charging is different depending on where you live

    Bloomington-Normal has been full on us a couple times. We also got line-jumped by an Audi there, but the next stall opened quickly so it didn't become "a big deal". Also I didn't catch which of the two pulled up after us so I wasn't sure who to yell at. It doesn't help that Illinois outside of...
  8. Senate Bill Deal to Expand EV Tax Credits (7/27/2022)

    Isn't the free market wonderful? Prices went higher elsewhere in the world and since oil was more valuable there, it would have been shipped out of the US had prices not risen here.
  9. Senate Bill Deal to Expand EV Tax Credits (7/27/2022)

    Not in the real world. The science on climate change is settled, and in fact was settled in the oil and gas industry decades before it became this public debate. And they conveniently buried it, because profits! Actually worse, they got out in front of it and did disinformation campaigns. They...
  10. Senate Bill Deal to Expand EV Tax Credits (7/27/2022)

    It is very convenient you leave out the costs of continuing on the way things are. OMG A QUARTER TRILLION EVERYONE PANIC PANIC PANIC! Fox News, is that you? How much will the damage from climate change cost in losses? Are you considering direct (hurricane damage) or indirect (farming...
  11. I Miss It Already

    I feel your pain, OP. I've ended up driving the honda fit recently because my wife had the pony and gas cars are such... bad cars. It doesn't go. It doesn't stop. I have to use two pedals all the time. It doesn't have a 360 camera. Its A/C is anemic. The only things it has going for it is it is...
  12. 22S41 & 22S29 Recall OTA Software Are Out

    That may be our first successful software update ever on the MME. 1 year and 13 days of ownership.
  13. TSB 22-2178 -- HVBJB Replacement - Stop Safely Now Message, Low or Discharged 12V Battery

    Well I pulled codes and nothing that even looks like the "electrical system drain" as a code. Guess I need to find it firing and see if I can pull codes then.
  14. Can I have two owners help us test out this Seat Belt Panel Protector sticker?

    Interesting. If these come to market, I may need a set. My wife can't not just throw the seatbelt at the car and so it is already scratched up. :-( At least the mustang keeps the belt in the vehicle. The fit will let it get caught between the body and door and crunch the paint too.
  15. TSB 22-2178 -- HVBJB Replacement - Stop Safely Now Message, Low or Discharged 12V Battery

    Do any of those DTCs match the "electrical system drain" message with no 3rd party apps/no accessories? I guess the real answer here is I should go setup the recently arrived odblink and see what code we have from it, but wife just took the pony to work so I'll have to wait til tonight.
  16. Trunk door allignment adjustment - how to do it

    I'd assume the ones up top that actually hinge it up. They're likely what is controlling the position/horizontal level, the lift arms are just along for the ride. I knew my hatch was a bit crooked and rather suspected that's why the "customer" (... tech at the dealership ...) refused delivery...
  17. Senate Bill Deal to Expand EV Tax Credits (7/27/2022)

    If oil and gas (and farming/ethanol) didn't have massive federal subsidies, I might be bothered about the "handout to the luxury EV car manufacturers." But they do, so, really, screw them for their whining and manufactured/astroturfed outrage. I do think the max price cap is a very bad plan...
  18. MME vs Chevy Blazer EV

    As opposed to the Ioniq 5 which is retro-futuristic looking and comes out looking a little weird? ... But if we end up swapping to one I want it in black so I can put a great '80s pac-man wrap/magnets or similar on it.
  19. Who IS NOT having problems with their brand new Mach-e? 2021/ 2022

    This. Except... I realize the reality of it is that probably most people with "no issues" only have "no issues" because they don't do the things that are causing others issues. Which is why I posted that I do have issues in a no issues thread. How many "no issues" people have 2 drivers...
  20. 22S41 Recall Software - Server Deployment Issue

    I appreciate DevSecOps's info because it saved me a wasted 3+ hours today, and unknown hours in the future (depending on how the tech resolved the recall with no updates), even if it does mean I'm sitting 1 day short of a lemon law claim. Also, the whole thing does not build confidence in...
