Re: Using the 120V plug in the trunk while camping...!?

I ran an electric chain saw a few weeks ago. I think the draw on the saw was around 10amps. Used it for about 1/2 hour with no problems or noticeable change in my battery.

Re: Adaptive Cruise Control System (ACC)

I'll just chime in that I really love this feature .... mostly :) The "problem" I have is that at times I don't know that it has slowed down behind a pokey driver and, being in my own little world, I don't pass and resume my speed :?

Re: Battery Charge/Save Buttons

I have kept a Excel spreadsheet recording every journey in details since collect our 2020 model 11 months ago, to date I have tried all different variations over the last 5,000 miles and to be honest I cannot see any real difference.

The evidence for this is that If they really wanted to reduce CO2 emissions, they'd be campaigning for fracking and nuclear power, which most of them abhor.
I think that nuclear is the only way we're going to solve all the problems of climate change.

Re: Ran out of gas but depleted battery got me home

River power is a good solution if you can combine low population density with lots of fast flowing rivers (i.e. mountains). Sweden is the poster boy for this, with its electricity coming from 40% hydro, 40% nuke, 12% wind, 8% other. It's a non-starter in England (and most countries), our rivers are...

Mellobob nobody said you can't implement both tiny fuel savings and proven simple methods. ;)
Do you have any numbers proving PHEV saves when: drive slower, carry less weight, and eschew the use of climate control... just kidding
I have the numbers 7 and 12. So there! :roll:

Re: Battery Charge/Save Buttons

Interesting to debate things like the CHARGE/SAVE button and tiny fuel savings when large, proven savings can be had with simple methods: Drive slower, carry less weight, and eschew the use of climate control.

Re: Ran out of gas but depleted battery got me home

Doesn't this whole electricity discussion depend on just how the electricity you are using to charge you car comes from and the cost of the grid which delivers it? I've read that the current grid is not capable of transmitting the amount of juice that would be needed if every car, magically, became ...
