Re: My electric generator stops in 10 seconds

The vehicle doesnt start the ICE with the 12 v. There is no starter motor. It engages from the drive assembly to turn ICE over
doh! good point :-)

Re: Mitsubishi PHEV 2019 Australian runout - should I buy it??

I also bought one of the runout ES ADAS cars in South Australia, and the battery seems fine. My only disappointment was I didn't realise that this model didn't come with the electric cabin heater, so it wants to start the engine whenever it's cold outside, but other than that it's great. You won't h...

Re: Charging at public stations issue

For the type 2 station it could be your cable - I have a charging cable that seems to have failed, as I can charge fine at the same stations with a different cable. With the Jolt station it's possible it just wasn't commissioned yet, as these are very new.

Re: Australia 2020 model no electric cabin heater

I haven't tried asking the dealer about a retro-fit - as greendwarf says, I got the sense from some other threads on this that others have looked into it and it's just not do-able. So I have resigned myself to burning some fuel for cabin heating, and I think I'm slowly getting over it :-) It will be...

Re: My electric generator stops in 10 seconds

I'm with ThudnBlundr - my guess would be the 12V battery is shot and this is causing the issue. Perhaps the effort of starting the ICE when it does kick in is enough to drop the voltage on the 12V battery to a critically low level and this is what's causing the weird behaviour after that with the en...

Australia 2020 model no electric cabin heater

So I just upgraded from a 2017 PHEV to a new 2020 ES ADAS model in Australia. I like the noticeable improvement in battery range and some of the other minor tweaks compared to the 2017 ... BUT... I only realised after buying the car that they have removed the electric cabin heater from the base mode...

Re: New to PHEVs. Just purchased a second hand 2018 Outlander

Congrats on the PHEV and welcome to the forums! You'll find plenty of advice on here on how to get the most out of the vehicle, but just a couple of quick thoughts on the questions you raised: - air conditioning doesn't use much energy so I'd definitely keep it on rather than swelter. Cabin heating ...

Re: Tethered Type 2 charging

I've not tried this but it looks like the connectors on normal type 2 cables are deliberately designed so that the cables cannot be connected in series, so it looks like you will need the separate adapter if you want to connect to a wired type 2 EVSE.

Re: Achieving ultimate fuel consumption

Agree with the above about coasting where possible with B0. The only other thing I would suggest is that forcing the ICE to run with 'save' mode just to warm the cabin is generally not necessary. Crank the heater if you need to and the car will start the engine itself if required and run it only eno...

Re: New owner, home charging

You can definitely get by just with the supplied charging cable. We bought a basic 15A charger to use at home and we find the faster charging rate helps on days when we make more than one trip, which is most weekend days; if you want to maximise EV usage then the faster charger gives more chance of ...
