The VW settlement alone insures chademo's future likely for 2 decades. Is it possible the terms could be changed? Sure but not likely. Besides we are worried about an EV that "might" sell a few thousand a year? From Honda? who might distribute it in half a dozen states? hmmm...

Water Pump Dead=DOA? Not In A LEAF!
Normally I only charge just before going to bed. Its one of the last things I do and normally do it while I am brushing my teeth.  But the other day, I had a planned light day and had about 40-50 miles of range so didn't plug in that night.   But as life no...

Definitely where we need to be. Since Plugshare can initiate a charge and it knows where the car is, why can't the "pre-prep" the station to quicken the start of the charge. NRG is so quick the way it is but AV is like waiting for the first shred of truth in a trump speech.... sooooo long!

March 2017 Drive Report; Battery Health Update
This month was unusual for several reasons. I am still trying to collect as much data on battery cooling as I can by checking the pack at random intervals between fast charges.  To reduce outside influences as much as possible, I am only collecting measurem...

February 2017 Drive Report
Well this was the "calm before the storm" as work is generally slower in February because of the massive rush of work right before and after the beginning of the year so the LEAF only traveled 1189.4 miles costing me $15.37 or 1.3 cents per mile. This total...

Shocking Prelim Data On 30 KWH LEAF Pack Temperature Management...Maybe
As mentioned MANY times in the 3 months I have had my S30, I have noticed the pack does not seem to retain the heat as much as my previous 24kwh LEAFs.  Now, it was a very warm Veteran's Day when I picked up the S30 but the weather has been pretty cold ever...

Jan 2017 Drive Report
LEAF went 1160.4 miles costing $23.08 or  1.98 cents per mile. NCTC pitched in 105.92 Kwh for the month. A bit too early to start reporting battery stats as far as highs and lows.  Other than one day (in Feb actually) all my stats are still the same as new ...
