    New Leviton 14-50 receptacle

    Leviton has apparently been aware of the failures of their $15 receptacles when used for EV charging. They have a new “EV” model that sells for about $50.

    Opinions on replacing one tire

    I lost a tire due to road hazard. Tires are at about 1/2 tread. What are some opinions regarding replacing just the one, replacing a pair at the same end of the car, vs replacing all 4? I’m inclined to replace a pair.

    Anyone familiar with the i3?

    My wife currently drives a beater 07 CR-V. There’s a private party in my town that has an i3 for sale that I might consider as a replacement. I don’t know what year it is, how many miles, or the asking price. But before I go talk to them, I’d appreciate any feedback from the community regarding...

    What day is it?

    Is there a way to tell what day of the week the car thinks it is? Reason for asking: A couple weeks ago, I needed to leave to catch a flight at 3:30AM on Wednesday. I set a departure time in FordPass, only to discover that preconditioning did not happen. I opened the charging app in the car and...

    Florida panhandle trip

    Looking for some local advice. I have a trip coming up that will take me across the panhandle. It looks the EA station in Tallahassee is out of service and I can’t find any estimate for when it will be back. PlugShare shows a couple other DCFCs in Tallahassee, but they are lower-power and not...

    Another EV advantage

    I pulled into Wally’s in Fenton, Mo. for a charge. Had some time to kill so I went inside. They had a Knob Creek barrel pick, so I had to give it a try. It’s really good. If was buying gas, I would have paid at the pump, not gone inside, and missed it.

    All hail the frunk 😀 "Electric Cars’ Most Divisive Feature"

    A whimsical, fun read… The frunk The Front Trunk Is Electric Cars’ Most Divisive Feature The “frunk” that comes standard with most electric vehicles is proving the best kind of marketing engine: one that runs on its own. Link:

    The sought-after “default” charge level! Fake news…

    Edit: Thanks to @ZuleMME for setting me straight. My home location got renamed to “Default”. Sorry for getting your hopes up! I had my car in for replacement of the eye nanny camera module. They also applied updates which wiped out my charging location. When I went to check, I see this screen...

    Technology….or coincidence?

    So today I was at my dealer, finalizing the schedule for my glass recall. Discussed the process at length with my service manager. All good and the car goes in next week. Fast forward to this evening. I get an email from Amazon recommending “thinks you might like.” Among the items: 3M...

    Understanding air conditioner compressor operation

    Here's the setup: On a drive yesterday, outside temp is 73F with light drizzle. It would be a perfect day to be outside other than the light rainfall. I set out with climate control on, AC off, and temp set to "Low". I expected this to simply run the fan and pull in outside air. Within minutes...

    Train carrying cars derails in central Missouri

    I hope none of you folks out east had an MME on this train! I pretty sure this line originates in Kansas City.

    Another cracked roof

    I just got back from a round trip from Texas. While there I saw temperatures displayed as high as 113F on the MME display - that's probably higher than actual, but it was hot. The car spent a lot of time parked in the sun. At home, it's always garaged. Out of the blue, I come out to the car and...

    FordPass service not found in the app

    So I finally got around to setting my FordPass charging network - I'm going to take a road trip next week. The setup on went fine - it shows activated and a balance of 500KWH. But when I go to the FordPass app and access "FordPass Charging Network" so that I can enable Plug & Charge...
