    It soon will be cheaper to drive my Ford Maverick hybrid than my MME

    We’re at $.0634/KWh so I’ve done those calcs and everything evens out after 10 years if I drove the MME and saved $40K in fuel or bought a MAVHYB at 1/2 the price and 1/2 the fuel economy. But either would be trashed with nearly 300,000 miles. Late spring to early fall I’m averaging 4.0 mi/KWh...

    Does everyone’s heater suck? Or just mine?

    My quilted shirt is my heater. If the outside temp is above 50, no heat needed though I occasional de-fog as needed. Gets down right chilly below say 43 F. I tried the old still-air method. Works good as long as you don’t breathe 😂. I run e-heat as needed below 45. I can still average 3.5 mi/KWh...

    Fords new Ad bashing Elon is not a good look for EVs owners and perspective buyers.

    I can’t wait for Elon to be crowned the 1st King of Mars.. on Mars. It’d be a good place for him.

    50,000 mile owner update. Quite an impressive vehicle overall.

    So.. summer, no matter how lightly I drive I’m stuck at around 94%-95% to driving so that 265 would drop to 251-254. Where does that other 20+ miles go?.. we’ll that’s predictive and since I never run it to zero, I’ve not a clue. The most miles I’ve ever seen at 90% is 219 and that’s getting...

    50,000 mile owner update. Quite an impressive vehicle overall.

    Nice write up! I’m at 29,000+ and have few gripes though 10,000 miles between tire rotations (for me) is too much. Right front has slight tow-out and it is showing up. Other than that my experience is the same. Minor glitchy software & mostly around PAAK. I net $4,000 per year in fuel savings. I...

    What did you do to/with your Mach-E today? 🙋🏻‍♂️

    Wash & tire pressure check.

    What happened to my my range?

    I just reset range/driving history. I typically average 215 miles of estimated range at 90% charge. After the reset it went from 180 to 205 miles (90% charge) in 5 days. I’ll likely be back to 210-217 next week. I do a steady 88-90 miles of commuting 5 days a week. BTW, a 90% charge appears to...

    Don't trust the displayed range on indicator (GOM)! Best ways to calculate how far your Mach-E can really go

    And you all never called a fuel level (😂) a GOM and you think it’s accurate? In August my consistent commute average was 2.3-2.4 miles per percent (%) which squares well with an average 3.9 mi/KWh. And estimated range of 230-240 miles. Minus 4-6% to accessories, temps, etc. I average 95%+ to...

    80% charge or 90% charge for daily use?

    FWIW I drive the same route every day, every week, every month at the same speed. A year ago at 90% charge the most range I ever saw was 219 miles at 90% charge. A year later, the maximum range at 90% I’ve seen yet is 219 miles. AWD SR. I’m quite ok with that. The one odd thing I’ve observed...

    80% charge or 90% charge for daily use?

    I drive slightly under 90 miles daily & charge to 90% 5 days a week. In the winter I precondition and the garage never gets much below 40 F. I average about 213 miles of 90% charge this time of year. In the winter that’ll drop to about 165 if temps are 29-37 F. Nice morning views!

    DCFC in America - it’s falling apart

    I commute with my BEV & charge from home. The rare (few times a year) that we travel farther than my commute distance (44 miles one way) it’s anywhere from 120-500 miles away and I gotta say, a year ago there were issues with non-working EA site chargers (say 2-4 of 8 not working. I’ve not seen...

    Embarrassing discoveries?

    It still felt odd as in not well thought out for exactly the reason you stated. The interface is overly complicated and in the absence of a tactile button that does “X” they created a descent into menu hell. Every time I push a selection on that screen my eyes are off the road for ~2 seconds...

    Embarrassing discoveries?

    In “Intelligent Cruise” the front camera reads the speed limit signs and the dealer had set the cruise speed limit to 5 mph over. I set the MME on “Intelligent Cruise” on a long straight when I was going 50. At the end of the straight there’s a narrow bridge ending in a tight left curve. The...

    Why mixed reviews on Mach-E suspension?

    Our Select ST suspension is a mirror of the Edge Sport we traded off. Short wheel based SUV designed to haul 4+ and gear. Putting 4 adults in it plus some gear quiets it down. Now many US rural roads have a crappy base and they are subject to slumps, frost heave, and that pushes any car around...

    26,068 Commute Miles: 1 Year Overview & Owner's Review

    Thanks for comments. I take notes, images of screen info. Write it down, then update. I use “Trips” for daily, seasonal, all time Mi/KWh till the recent update. Now I get to start over. I still can’t figure out the blue light reflection top of rear window, thought it was overhead ambient blue...

    26,068 Commute Miles: 1 Year Overview & Owner's Review

    Just curious, hard to say on impact but likely negligible. I’ve one tire with a real slow leak.. drives me nuts pumping it up every week by 1-2 pounds 😡
