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

    As noted above, I use the % meter as a fuel gauge in units of 100. I have to laugh at the all the bs talk from drivers that had a fuel gauge that has E and F with 3 hash marks between. The vast majority had no clue of their true range based on driving style. Those that hyper-miled have a really...

    240V but only 20Amp circuit.

    So when I was studying our garage panel the very first thing I did was look at available breakers, amp rating, and… AWG gauge and are they copper or aluminum wires. Heres the good.. all copper and the bad-odd thing. A disconnected spa with a 60 amp breaker and 8 AWG.. bad! A 30 amp dryer with...

    Charging options with a 10-30A dryer outlet

    I’m beginning to think that BEVs will require a rethink of utility circuits in garages. After market chargers for 1 vehicle like a Lightning could well pull over 40 amps which means a 50 or 60 amp breaker. And 6 or 4 gauge wire.

    Charging options with a 10-30A dryer outlet

    8 AWG copper and 25’. But I agree, don’t mess with undersized wire/breakers.

    Charging options with a 10-30A dryer outlet

    I swapped out a 30 amp breaker on a dryer circuit for a 40 amp breaker. Easy to do. The wire was sized accordingly and can easily handle 32 amps but a 30 amp breaker will eventually trip pulling 32 amps, particularly if it’s old. .

    What else have you electrified?

    Watch, camera, drills, lawnmower, vacuum, weather station, weed whacker, and my next purchase will be a battery powered chainsaw. I bike a fair amount and nearly all on the ocean and an e-bike would be a maintenance nightmare as salt and abrasive sand are bad enough without electrons flowing...

    Maximizing Your Battery in Winter - Tips for New EV Owners

    I set my charge to start at 7:00 pm and it usually charges to 90% by midnight. Then departure at 6:00 am and the car is toasty warm and usually at 90% though occasionally at 89%. As the car warms, the power pulls from battery 1st, then charging kicks in to get it to 90%. Our winter weather is...

    5000 commute miles on MME SR AWD - results and takeaways

    I’ve wondered about freeway speeds/energy use. Our only trip out of town had a mix of rural-freeway-urban and we averaged 3.5.

    All route all the way. Until that battery warmed up after 20 miles! Still pulled 98%!

    It is odd, but as times change, so must we. It could very well be that the fix-flat system is a better solution 99% of the time….
