Re: Battery Charge/Save Buttons

I am not disputing any of the actual physics or science involved in any of the charging versus everything else discussions. I am merely putting forward the notion that we bought a vehicle to get from A to B. So assuming that getting from A to B was the original goal, the rest needs to be thought abo...

Re: Battery Charge/Save Buttons

all of these hypothesizes on how much gas to charge the battery are pretty much irrelevant. Unless of course you are just asking if sitting my driveway, is it cheaper to use the grid to charge the battery or the ICE You are presumably in the car to get some where. So to get there you need to, in our...

Re: Increasing/Upgrading - Higher Battery Capacity

and then you enter the age old conundrum
Bigger battery for more range = more weight = less range= need more battery =more weight and around and around you go
I'm not buying another car until they go nuclear !

Re: What CAN I tow with PHEV

zzcoopej, thanks for the info This all started because I live in Ontario, Canada. Several months ago months ago, before the Oscar winning movie, and this aggravating virus I had decided that at 65 years old I was going on an epic road trip for a year or two or three. Then the all hell let lose. The ...

Re: What CAN I tow with PHEV

unfortunately the legalities seem to defy the laws of physics so either the Canadian government are a bunch of wimps, or the British roads are full of suicidal drivers towing twice what they safely can ! Absolutely insane here that a capable vehicle is so restricted. I am not one for braking laws, I...

What CAN I tow with PHEV

Manual says 1500 lbs, Canada site says 1500 lbs, but in Canada we deal in KILOS in England the official Mitsubishi site says 1500 KGS many there speak of those numbers too. Anyone really know or have any experience towing anything ? I'm looking at a small tent trailer. https://www.mitsubishi-motors....

Re: Do not be scared of using that charge button.

the speedometer IS DEFINITELY not correct. But it shows you going faster than you are, so you don't get speeding tickets, you get little ol'ladies giving you the finger because you drive too slow in the fast lane. It is pretty close at lower speeds and peculiarly, the odometer seems to be OK. So is ...

Re: All terrain tires

sure you could take it on back "roads". I'm just making the observation that when I was owner/operator of a hunting lodge out in the boonies between Sudbury and Saulte St Marie, more than once us "locals" had to rescue weekend warriors who were sure their vehicle was invincible. Question is really, ...

Re: All terrain tires

Sounds like a pretty risky idea as the main traction battery is slung underneath. Catching the top of one rock will ruin your weekend and many to come. Buy an ATV, probably cheaper than any modification that would give you useful clearance and a lot less risky. I lived in northern Ontario and have b...
