Re: Can we clear up Serial vs Parallel drive?

I think it is the reason the recent Outlander adopted Atkinson Cycle for better efficiency at broader RPM. Even at Otto cycle, the extra torque go to batteries so it cannot be less efficient than series drive. What I learnt to drive more efficiently is to use up 1/2 of batteries and go to parallel ...

Re: Techincal And User Docs That Everyone Should Have

:shock:
Some really useful PHEV documents were posted way back when PHEVs were little known about. Now the links to them seem dead particularly those in a dropbox locations.

Thanks

Re: Rate my battery

You've discovered the problem with PHEV Watchdog...it's almost meaningless to the uninitiated! However the only number that I find relevant in that lot is 93.4% which is the state of health of the battery, which I think means how much of its useable life is left. It's a shame the app is not more use...

Re: Increasing/Upgrading - Higher Battery Capacity

'vtechtuning' had a go at upgrading the cells but no idea of the eventual outcome. Must be a thread on here about it.

Re: PHEV dead after heating, how to reboot?

Any auxiliary item used in the car including the heater fans and heated seats will drain the 12V battery. The electric heating source and I think the heated windscreen are fed by the traction battery. You need to get the car to full Ready mode before running any accessories in the car so that the 12...

Re: Electric shock when charging?

I suggest you get an electrician in to check the earthing arrangements for the charger and for your house!

There is now. :lol:

Re: Ev system shutdown and car seems completely dead

The car needs to be in 'Ready' if you want to use 12V to power anything. That is the only way the traction battery can recharge the 12V battery when not driving or charging.

Re: Transmission service for PHEV??

There has been discussion on forums and Farcebook about changing both front and rear transmission oils even though Mitsubishi don't suggest it. My recollection is that oils are said to be very black on draining so the conclusion was do it. Not sure what mileage was recommended though. I'll be doing ...
