Re: Battery Charge/Save Buttons

Thanks for that (and the condescending tone) but it doesn't really answer the question I asked. It says that if you are going to run at higher speeds, it is more efficient to run the PHEV in Series mode if the battery is low. So indeed Mitsubishi (and Chevy with the Volt - are there others?) wouldn...

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: G'day Mr greendwarf Sir...

Re: Battery Charge/Save Buttons

All I asked originally was, "Please show me a link to research that proves that this is true for our PHEV. I have still not seen any scientific proof in 3 years of ownership." You can argue all you want, but you haven't answered the question. And then you get angry because I point out you haven't a...

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

If you can do a whole journey on EV, Charge is obviously not worthwhile. But if the ICE needs to run , using Charge and/or Save effectively can reduce consumption slightly. Spot on! I think this is exactly what OP means: "Do not be scared of using that charge button". If it's gonna run anyway, you ...

Re: Any queries or suggestions of Mitsubishi Japan's enginee

Hi folks,

Just a quick catch up. Sent a communication to MMC about the polls that had sticky EV and sticky Eco as the most popular about 2 weeks ago. Have not heard from them yet so will resend and ask if they had received it previously.

They are probably getting sick of me I reckon. ;)

Re: Battery degradation

Hello, In the last months I’ve noticed that my MY17 was doing substantially less kms. It was winter time so I thought it could be normal. Today with 23°c I decided to make a test. I traveled in a flat road 80km/h until the battery was empty. I traveled a total of 39km and the electric consumption w...

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

When I bought my car last May, I noticed 5% higher reading on the speedometer compared to my GPS. I reported that to this forum, but few members were irrelevant in laughing at me because I was not happy with this discrepancy. Do some searches and you find these stupid replies. That is probably why ...

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: Do not be scared of using that charge button.

I haven't checked with GPS, but I agree with the speedometer being out, I have travelled a lot of motorway miles the past week with quite a few average speed check cameras at 50mph, I set my cruise control at 51 mph and other cars were still over taking me, so either my speedometer is out as you sa...

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

and just to throw a fox into the hen house, no one here seems to be taking into consideration that the speedometer on the Outlander is off by %5 Err Bearhunter, If you had read 7 posts above yours in this thread you would have seen me write: Ok just noticed this in the topic I started and will say ...
