Re: Who are you?

Welcome syzmon - just to comment on #4 Like you I live in London and commute in to the centre regularly. Note that you can park in Westminster Council's on-street bays for 4 hours at a time by just paying the minimum 10 minute charge e.g. 87p around Aldwych. Also you can get exemption from the Conge...

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

Even if you use the windfarm approach of lots of micro energy turbines?

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

And presumably you could get G-d to do the initial heavy lifting by installing water turbines into rivers?

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

The simplest way of storing surplus energy is to push water up hill - to drive turbines on the way back down.

Re: What CAN I tow with PHEV

https://www.sae.org/standards/content/j2807_202002/preview/ And where in this doc does it say that it is only applicable to pick-ups - not in the introduction (NB. I'm not going to pay $85 to read the full version) As it says it is a standard for use by manufacturers to enable comparison between veh...

Re: Real-world tests of hybrid cars show higher-than-expected emissions

Which is why in London we lose our exemption to the Congestion Charge in October. I only use mine as an EV, as I live in Inner London, unless I travel to the provinces, but users from outside the capital currently get the benefit despite chocking us to death once they get here - I doubt many Save th...

Re: What CAN I tow with PHEV

Looking on-line and specifically the AAA website, which details towing regs state by state (US) and by province for Canada, I can't find any reference to towing weights laid down by law. But as previously posted, it is suggested the standard is about driving up a slope from a standing start. So, as ...

Re: What CAN I tow with PHEV

If that is the test in Canada (unlike UK where it is to do with kerb weight) then the PHEV, like all EV power trains, might well struggle to comply. There have been numerous posts about failing on slopes from a standing start - and its inability to be able to mount a kerb - without a "run up". You n...

Re: What CAN I tow with PHEV

This is a complaint shared with Land Rover owners in the UK, when the law was changed here, so that a vehicle was not allowed to tow a weight greater than itself - presumably to prevent jack-knifing etc. However, the real Land Rover was design specifically to do this and many people, like farmers wh...
