Re: Increasing/Upgrading - Higher Battery Capacity

Well i said rumour, because it was told to me by my Mitsubishi salesman... Who is not the most technologically capable person I've ever met.

It might be true. It might be false. I was hoping someone had more than just anecdotal statements.

Re: Increasing/Upgrading - Higher Battery Capacity

I heard a rumour that the recent upgrade from 12 to 13.2 was not really a battery hardware change. They just altered the software to allow you to use a bit more.

Re: Micro Battery Jump Starter?

Probably cheaper and better to just replace it after 7 years
Even if you manage to charge it to start the car, it will probably go flat in a few days anyway. It will go flat on you on the first or second morning after an overnight cold snap.

I too have a 2020 in USA, and I also feel the suspension is quite stiff. I feel every bump.

Re: What fuel consumption can I expect on 50mile run on motorway?

I think on a 50 Mile run of varied driving, not exceeding 60 mph, you could expect At least 50 mpg. Probably less if you use heat. You might get 50 with limited AC.

On a 50 Mile run, I would not bother with Save or Charge.

Re: Bluetooth and Android auto

Ok, here is a related question that I have not figured out yet.... If I am connected to android auto, and using Waze on my phone as GPS, if I turn on the radio, i can no longer hear directions from Waze. Shouldn't I be able to hear both?

Re: Bluetooth and Android auto

I have tried different cables.... So, what I have learned since my original post is that if the screen is not set properly to accept input from Bluetooth or Android Auto (depending on what you are doing), you cannot set the proper input from the screen if you are driving. I guess they figure it is s...

Re: My electric generator stops in 10 seconds

I agree, if the 12 volt battery has never been replaced..... start there. But, if your car has one, and you push the CHARGE button, will the ICE stay on longer than 10 seconds?

Re: 12V motorcycle lithium battery to replace aux battery?

I wouldn't. I'm not an electrical engineer, but I have heard in other forums that a lithium battery may need more charging to keep it where it should be... Possibly draining the traction battery a little more.
