Re: How to siphon fuel from 2015 PHEV

Most cars in the last 20 years or so have anti-siphoning devices in place. So the other way to do it would be to disconnect the fuel hose at the engine end (or under the car if there's a suitable connector), then attempt to start the engine - which will cause the in-tank pump to pump the fuel out (u...

Re: Mitsubishi Australia will not sell a workshop manual to me.

Could anybody please provide a link to a workshop manual in PDF version for the PHEV ? No - because Mitsubishi don't tend to produce a single PDF version of their workshop manuals, unlike say Nissan or Subaru. Most of Mitsubishi's workshop manuals are in this format, with several small PDFs linked ...

Re: Commutable Electric Range

Ah yes that's a good point - the MY20 has a bit more range than older models.

Re: Commutable Electric Range

Totally agree - this is not a pure EV, it's a Hybrid. So you are expected to use petrol some of the time. If you can do all your driving without then a pure EV SUV (such as the MG ZS or Kia Nero) might be a better fit. We've seen over the 8 years or so that the Outlander PHEV has been on sale that d...

Re: Commutable Electric Range

You probably won't manage that all on EV, no matter how you drive, although you will manage most of it. Most PHEVs (Mitsubishi, VW, Audi, Kia etc) are designed around the average commute being under 15 miles a day, so this is the EV range. You're just above that so you won't get all of the benefit b...

Re: Front wipers won’t switch off!!!!

I think the issue is more likely to be with it not cutting off the motor current when it's supposed to be parking rather than the rain sensor, as it does it on non-auto modes such as single wipe. You should try a different garage - I don't think there's anything unusual about the Outlander's wiper s...

Re: Safety system makes phev battery unusable after accident

I'm getting bored of typing this on here and on other PHEV forums/FB groups. MITSUBISHI ARE NOT LEAVING EUROPE. They are simply not seeking EU/UK type approval for new models, so they won't be for sale. All existing models will remain on sale until they're either not being produced or don't meet emi...

Re: Loud vibration/wind noise, driver's side roof

Mine started making a whistling noise and I resolved it by squirting a bit of black silicone sealant under the strip and putting a heavy book on top for a few hours to push it down while it set. I think it just lifts enough to let the airflow get under and cause the noise, so pushing it down a bit o...

Re: Mitsubishi to exit UK market

Mitsubishi Motors are not 'pulling out of Europe/UK' - they're just not getting type approval for new models (which means they can't be sold through dealerships). Most dealerships should carry on as normal. There's no change to sales of existing models (until they stop making them), or to parts and ...
