Re: Auxiliary battery pack to add a little EV range

Tempted to get a i-miev for the wife.

They were sold in EU as Mitsu, and Citroen C1 and Peugeot ion as well.

50 miles a charge would be twice as much as she needs.

Re: charging at public charge points, what cable do i need?

I bought a Type 1 to Type 2 cable so I could charge for free at the local swimming pool. The Type 1 end goes in the car, the other end in the EVSE. If you can readily charge for free then worth it in the long run. Just for fun I once did a ChaDeMo charge at IKEA, but that's the limit of my Chargepoi...

Re: Auxiliary battery pack to add a little EV range

My early PHEV has about 9KWh capacity for an approx 25 mile range.

So you need about 3.6KWh capacity for 10 miles.

Ideally 400V output so you can feed into the CHAdeMo socket.

Custom interface and cabling.

Maybe £3000 ?

A gallon of petrol works for me too.

Re: Burning smell, loss if battery, return car?

I agree with Daixiwen.

The fully charged range on the Guessometer seems too low, and the rapid discharge is not usual.

Could you tell that the heater was on when you turned it on ?

Re: How to siphon fuel from 2015 PHEV

Filled the PHEV up at the start of Lock Down here in anticipation of fuel shortages, which didn't happen. 3 months later I got the warning message on the dash indicating the fuel may be stale. Tried to find how to drain the tank Tried siphoning Decided there was a anti-siphon grid in the filler pipe.

Re: MPG/ l/100km on long journey using charge button

You can run on B0, and only use higher B occasionally.

Or run B5 all the time with your eyes glued to the dial.

But perhaps the difference is that I'm located in rolling countryside, with villages 10 miles apart.

Re: Green plates

On gov.uk there are many articles on green number plates, but they do not specify the types of vehicles that can carry them, only "zero emission vehicles".

I take that to mean that PHEVs and HEVs are not eligible.

Re: MPG/ l/100km on long journey using charge button

I'm surprised that use of the B0 to B5 paddles hasn't been mentioned. The most efficient way to save charge is to not use it. I run in B0 most of the time. The car is heavy and you'd be surprised how many "flat" roads turn out to be sloping, giving many hundreds of metres of coasting. More charge sa...

Re: Charging point door not remaining close

On my 2013 there is a horizontal spring-loaded catch in grey plastic. It should easily retract and extend when you push it in with your finger. If not, lube with a small amount of furniture polish and then exercise with your finger until it moves freely. If that is okay then check the latch on the l...
