Re: Mustang Mach-E

Well I have one reserved whatever that means in Ford speak LOL

(Looking at the reservation FAQ: You give your $$ to Ford, they don't guarantee anything and you get your $$ back once you've placed an order with a dealer. So what does putting in a reservation get me other than loaning Ford $500?)

Re: Instantly improve “range” after purchasing a used FFE

Didn't really have to do all that. You'll quickly learn that the "range" as displayed is highly variable on the FFE. With about two charge cycles it would have reverted to whatever your driving habits are. There is a reason the range display is termed the "guess-o-meter". In fact you can even watch ...

Re: Just bought 2012 Focus EV

Actually I've never driven my FFE down to zero miles. The closest I got was about 5 miles in the dead of winter (I think I only went about 50 miles then too). Note that I don't have my FFE anymore--haven't had it for 4 years now. Its really hard to measure battery degradation by using the guess-o-me...

Re: Just bought 2012 Focus EV

Actually the owner's manual doesn't really do a very good job of describing all the dash gauges. The range to empty value of the FFE (commonly called the "Guess-O-Meter") is a calculated average of your driving habits and electricity consumption heavily weighted to your most recent driving. As such ...

Re: Debating a 2017

Sync3 vs MFT and fast charge (CCS) that is about the only differences besides the larger battery.

Re: 2016 focus electric only shows 57 mile budget

In the winter my 2013 FFE would frequently read only 50 miles.

It is very possible that it only shows 57 miles on a full charge. That Guess-O-Meter can be very unreliable at times.

Re: AC Turns On during DC Charging

Yeah someone mentioned that the AC comes on when DC fast charging. The car is doing everything it can to keep the batteries cool at that time. I know when I've fast charged my Bolt and another Bolt that I've rented they both made a huge racket as just about every fan on the car comes on to keep thin...
