Re: Battery Charge/Save Buttons

No offence intended ThudnBlundr - as typed it was directed at Trex, who like me has been around since the early days when the car was very much an unknown for everyone. Buried in the archives are lots of graphs and other stats, which might help answer your question, like the one he dug out but, I ac...

Re: Battery Charge/Save Buttons

G'day Trex - nice to have some clarity on this from "the old days". ;)

You'd think after 7 years of discussion that this subject might have died a death but too many newbies. :roll:

Glad to see "down under" on the new UK travel green list, even you won't let us in yet! :lol:

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.

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

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 ...
