    Getting the right Tesla to J1722 adapter for trips

    So, if one has a Lightning reservation and wants to maximize their charging options or speed, purchasing the 80A Tesla Tap might be the way to go, yes?

    -35F\-37C Real World Mach-E Range Test. What could go wrong?

    Life in witness protection is hell. Air Force brat + my own Air Force career. Born in England. I did live in Las Vegas, too. 🙂 👽

    -35F\-37C Real World Mach-E Range Test. What could go wrong?

    Yes, my next cold weather test will be to answer some of those questions. I saw some evidence that if plugged in to a 120v level 1 outlet, there is no heat going to either the battery or the interior. If, in fact, the heater is 5 kw then it won't be able to be powered by the 120v connection...

    -35F\-37C Real World Mach-E Range Test. What could go wrong?

    Yes, I keep a close eye on all the cold weather threads and recommendations. During this unusual, early cold snap I've observed a number of Mach E extreme cold weather climate control shortcomings that are going to require additional driver intervention\actions. This test focused on worse case...

    Please Help. Ford Isn’t! (Ford Charge Station)

    I wish I had good news. I've had a similar problem, except mine actually worked correctly for about a month, then lost it's connection. For 6 months, using the wall station's customer service number, I've been "helped" and handed off to other "helpers" so many times I've lost count. Multiple...

    Danger- if your Mach E needs towing- no towing hooks on your car

    But what about winching from the rear? If a car is in the garage and can't be started, how do you get it out of the garage??

    Winter Tires: What are you going with?

    My words not Continentals. I was just referring to the XL load factor and their lower rolling resistance, which is a bit unusual for a winter tire.

    -35F\-37C Real World Mach-E Range Test. What could go wrong?

    I didn't try. I wanted to know what I could get out of the car without any compromise or pretrip preparation. The next distance test will be the same but with preheating and departure time set. I'll probably throw in a cold weather fast charge at the midpoint if the new charger in Healy is...

    Probably not the best thing to buy your arctic charger from an Australian manufacturer.

    -35F\-37C Real World Mach-E Range Test. What could go wrong?

    An interesting related story. It turns out the new DC fast chargers being installed here have a minimum operating temperature of -31F https://www.rechargealaska.net/blog/planning-for-the-cold Turns out you not only have to preheat the car, you also have to preheat the charger. Fun.

    I grew up in Louisiana, proving that even a cajun can learn to stay warm if his life depends on it.

    -35F\-37C Real World Mach-E Range Test. What could go wrong?

    It was buried amongst my many words. All at highway speeds, no stopping. ~69 mph(111 kph) outbound 59 mph (95 kph) inbound.

    -35F\-37C Real World Mach-E Range Test. What could go wrong?

    I had one pedal off and was in whisper so no regen was noticeable.

    -35F\-37C Real World Mach-E Range Test. What could go wrong?

    Eheat was mostly on. But I tried many different combinations when I was trying to troubleshoot the lack of heat. For the last leg home, I had the climate system off to make sure I maxed out the range.

    -35F\-37C Real World Mach-E Range Test. What could go wrong?

    My GT-PE will be delivered next week, so more testing to follow. I didn't know the gray power meter grays out relative to the cold temps.

    -35F\-37C Real World Mach-E Range Test. What could go wrong?

    I was wondering about the battery coolant temp specs. Typically, for ICE vehicles here, the dealers do remix the radiator coolant to -60F concentration before delivery. I'm guessing that wasn't done for the Mach-E here because dealers on early deliveries don't even know it has coolant. Of the...

    -35F\-37C Real World Mach-E Range Test. What could go wrong?

    There have been a lot of questions about the effect of winter temps on the Mach E's range. (I had been told by owners of other EVs to expect a 50% range reduction in extreme cold.) I know Ford tested the Mach E here in Alaska (I saw one here about a month before the Nov 19 reveal), but the...
