Re: Advice for a long drive

On a long drive, I have gotten in the habit of running my battery down to about half, then switch to charge mode as long as I am riding above 45 mph at a steady pace. I let the battery charge to the max, as I frequently encounter slowdowns and don't want to get caught short of battery. As the batter...

Re: Buying vs lease advice

I think the ride is a little stiff...but some people like that. I think the overall build and performance quality is good to excellent. On the topic of whether or not to buy a phev, I think it depends on how many miles you travel between charging., and, in my belief, only home charging is economical...

Re: Best way for charging

If you cannot plug in and charge at home, don't buy a plugin car. Buy a regular hybrid.

In my experience here in the US, the cost of public ev charging is high. Everybody is trying to cash in on the ev craze.

Re: Charging

Is the outlet at your house properly grounded? The charger won't work unless it is. Maybe this is why it worked for them and not you.

This situation happened to me with my outlet in my garage.

Re: Low EV milage when fully charged?

I don't think Mitsubishi ever claimed 30 miles for the 2018, more like 21. And as was previously said, the estimate on the quessometer had a lot to do with how heavy your foot is. What?????????????????????? - the claimed maximum mileage has always been over 30 miles and even after 7 years and 50+k,...

Re: Battery only 20km

One more issue... If your driving slowly due to traffic or whatever, you are spending more time going nowhere, but the HVAC is working full time. Ergo, reduced mpg.

Re: Battery Charge/Save Buttons

I'll add my two cents here... And I realize all of what I say is anecdotal. I've also not been convinced that parallel is more economical than series, but I may be coming around. I use a scan guage on long trips which gives me an instantaneous mpg, and rpms... Two things that Mitsubishi doesn't give...

Re: Increasing/Upgrading - Higher Battery Capacity

Would that be the same salesman who told me that I could charge the battery in my key fob by putting it in the slot? :roll: :lol: ;) I really think that most of them don't have a clue... It would be the same salesman that told me the Phone app would work while my train was 10 or 15 minutes from my ...

Question though is 13.8 kWh compatible without any CAN tweaks?
From what year car was this taken?
