    Question: Is there a way to report ICE vehicles parked in an EV Charging station?

    I just saw this sign by the EA station at Love's Travel Stop, Quartzsite, AZ off Interstate 10. I have no idea about the level of enforcement.

    Question: Is there a way to report ICE vehicles parked in an EV Charging station?

    This must be the location. I was there a month ago. There was one Tesla and one Mach E charging. One spot open and the rest had parked Teslas. Didn't Tesla offer free charging AND free parking?

    Walmart has advantages. They have a big parking lots with extra space. They have really BIG wires supplying power to the complex. Semi-captive audience with limited options. Minimally invasive infrastructure with the most efficient cost/benefit.

    Wyoming attemps to ban EVs [CLOSED DUE TO POLITICS]

    There is backroom animosity between Wyoming and California politicians. It goes back to when Wyoming wanted to sell power from upcoming wind farms to California. California didn’t want it because they figured Wyoming’s power usage would be offset by coal power. And it was too hard to get...

    Where to get a spare tire and jack for my Mach-E GT?

    I bought one for my Kia EV6 GTL that I use for road trips. Quality kit in a handy storage bag. It's a "few guys in a warehouse" company so shipping was a little slow. Well worth the wait.

    Stop Safely Now (HVBJB): Mach-E Owners Biggest Fear - Facts and Info Thread

    My GTPE rotors rusted the same way when it sat in the dealer lot for over a month. The rotors will be fine. Do a couple hard stops. The larger concern would be sticking caliper pistons. Here is the procedure from the manual (you might pass it on to your dealer) to open the frunk with a dead...

    Is Ford now doing HVBJB replacement for cars that have not failed?

    I just got my car back last week - after six weeks waiting - for the HVBJB replacement. That recall is for software to tell you "the end is near" and get to the dealer asap. Slowly or by tow truck. I got the same notice today. That recall update was supposed to be done in July but it didn't...

    Probably dust burning off when you first turn it on. The heater is a PTC (positive temperature coefficient) electric heater which is a combination heater core and four-slice toaster.

    Just got my Mach E GTPE. I picked it up today

    The Grainger Bryant socket is the best choice. The socket has a larger diameter so you will need a 2.47 inch cover plate such as a Leviton from Ace Hardware. (DON'T buy the socket!)
