Re: Any queries or suggestions of Mitsubishi Japan's enginee

I would like to be able to lock the vehicle and leave the A/C on a set temp. for these reasons 1. Running errands. 2. Leaving dog in car. Edit: I know it can be done using correct lock settings (unlock driver door only) then locking all doors then exiting vehicle and using the actual key to lock dri...

Re: Auxiliary battery draining while Parked / Ready

I of course swore I would by a Li-ion jump-starter thingy as a result of this episode, but so far I haven't, so I've only got myself to blame if I manage to do it again. The thing is the Li-ion device also has to be in a fully charged state at all times. There seem to be mixed opinions as to how lo...

Re: The dog friendliest car?

About 10 times in the last 2 years at our local cafes/lunch spots we have put the dog into the car when it's too hot. Instead of using the app (which uses max AC/heat) I just leave the car running with AC on (recirc) and use the key to lock the door. Put the key/FOB in your pocket, the car beeps a c...

Re: Volvo plug-in bursts into flames while charging

I guess anything can happen at any time. But in saying that I feel quite secure charging at home with the standard charger and nothing gets warm/overheated/overloaded. (240v, 7.45amp)

Re: Non-ideal temp/airflow when using auto climate settings

Re: Is it 15 litres or 4 gallons?

I have had the error message telling me that I hadn't used sufficient petrol in the previous 3 months and telling me to add 15 litres or 4 gallons. As a precaution I added 4 gallons but wondered if I could get away with 15 litres? Actually when it happened the tank was too full to put that amount i...

Re: Pre-heating, connected to charger all night or not?

I have had a Bose Sounddock with a 19v Li-ion battery pack for 8 years and I leave it plugged into 220v 24/7. The battery to me is as good as the day I brought it. I have many top brand items with Li-ion batteries that I leave plugged in 24/7 and after years of use they are still good. I treat my PH...

Re: Emergency key

Sometimes on hot Summer days when out doing errands with the Dog in the car I leave the car running and A/C on and lock the car with the key. Surprisingly it barely uses any battery.
