Porsche already makes 2-ton SUVs, which actually handle quite well. And they make a 2-ton BEV, ditto

Re: Did Mitsu confuse "Save" Mode and "Charge" Mode Above 78 mph (125 km/h)?

Have a look at Section H of Richi's FAQs. The rest of it is well worth reading too...

Re: Decoding the manual

Weird that they specify CVT oil when the PHEV doesn't have a CVT. I don't think there's anything in the electric motors that needs lubrication but reduction gears (isn't the diff separate?), so I'm not sure why it needs special oil or how "dirty" the oil would get. Does anyone know why it needs the ...

Re: Door locks? ACC beeping? Improve sensor beeps? Reward!

Not sure about the others, but on ours the ACC beeps whenever it "finds" a car and whenever it "loses" a car. You can see a car graphic appearing and disappearing in the central screen whenever this happens

Re: What fuel consumption can I expect on 50mile run on motorway?

@jpalfrey Don't get too hung up on whether to use CHRG or SAVE on a journey. The PHEV has to get its energy mainly from the ICE, and it does this by running in what is effectively CHRG. In SAVE or when the battery is empty, it will run till the range has gone up a bit and then runs in EV till the ra...

Re: What fuel consumption can I expect on 50mile run on motorway?

ThudnBlundr, What kind of scientific proof you may need? It is basic knowledge the ICE is more efficient on the highway than town, even more efficient when mechanically coupled with the wheels (which occur over the speed of 65km/h only) and electric propulsion is much more efficient in stop and go ...

Re: What fuel consumption can I expect on 50mile run on motorway?

I quite agree it might be more socially acceptable to refrain from using an ICE in a built-up area, but that's not my point. No one has produced any figures proving it's more economical. Just a simple "it must be true" doesn't really cut it in scientific circles. I'm not saying it's untrue, merely u...

Re: Just got my new 2020 Outlander PHEV. Looking into getting BIGGER tires. Would like some feed back!

Actually it depends on the profile of the tyre. You could in theory fit tyres that are several inches larger in diameter but are higher profile (i.e narrower). That would mess up the gearing but not the clearances. It would also look slightly weird... ;)

Re: Cheap car to give driving lessons

OT, but we used Marmalade for our DDs when they were learners. It just insures a named learner to drive a car that's already insured elsewhere, but it was significantly cheaper when we used it back in 2015-2018
