Re: steep hill vehicle stall

I recently had a 'panic moment' on a steep incline. Not towing or anything, but (having previously owned a Tucson 4X4 which would go anywhere ) I had reverse-parked down a fairly, but not excessively steep incline, thinking driving out would be a breeze. How wrong was I? When I tried to leave, I di...

Re: How to use 110 V AC outlet without headlights on

That would be illegal. in any case, the running lights are LED, so the power drain is minimal.

Re: Just found me a "new" one...

Yeah - it takes it about 15.000 below new, I couldn't pass it up ;) Part of the advantageous price is that it comes from Germany, that gives a tax reduction and the "Chesterfield" leather is a German extra. Actually, I only find the new design tolerable with silvery-grey colours.

Re: Just found me a "new" one...

No idea, it is something I never bothered about; I do recall that it was fairly normal according to my dealer at the last service. (they monitor the SOH with each service). I can only say that it is winter, and it will run over 30 km on a charge on average. I know because my commute is 25 km. In the...

Re: Electric range of 2017 Outlander PHEV

- and "wind chill" when driving is unlikely to help. It is the battery temperature that defines range not ambient. So if air temp is 2/3, as above, the battery is likely to be still below freezing. :idea: Wind chill doesn't affect inanimate objects with no water to evaporate Except when the object ...

Re: Electric range of 2017 Outlander PHEV

Not very high, but just possible at this temperature, especially if it is a hilly area. What did the battery condition report say when you bought the car? Ah, and therein lies my rookie error. I haven’t seen a battery report for it, maybe that’s what I get for not buying from a Mitsubishi dealer bu...
