Re: Battery Test

I had a 2014 for 3 years that got very good range. If there was any degradation, I didn't notice. Range was similar throughout my ownership. I have been driving / riding electric Vehicles for about a dozen years with hypermiling being my most common style of driving. Earlier this year I stumbled acr...

Re: pulled my front license plate - paid the price

In Nevada, if the vehicle ever had a front plate, you need to have one. So, if your dealer never put the front holder on, you don't need one. If it was put on, then, you need a plate. I took my holder off the morning after I got mine home. That was November, no problems yet, three little holes in th...

Re: Navigation SD Card update

I have the A4 in my 2014 FFE purchased in November 2014. I tried using the navigate to charge stations on the dash a few times, but, found that ChargePoint, or, PlugShare to be more convenient. Has anyone that updated to A5 or A6 cards from ebay found that charge locations have been updated / includ...

Re: Battery Capacity

I have various OBDII scanners, and, they don't seem to give me much information on the FFE. I get lots of information on my Civic Hybrid, and, got a pretty good amount of information on my Volt, but, the FFE doesn't really give me anything. I talked Progressive into giving me a Snapshot devise. All ...

Re: How do I get just outside air with no heat/ac?

I try to use climate control only when necessary. On my Volt, I would put fan on low. When the A/C for the battery pack would come on, I would feel the air from the vent begin to blow cooler, then, turn fan up to take advantage. Same with the heat in the winter. This way, I was able to take advantag...

Re: Anyone interested in Solar

I have wanted to do solar ( and, or wind ) for years. I have 3/4 of an acre, so, am zoned for pretty much anything I wish to use. Unfortunately for me, I don't make enough money to qualify for any of the "incentives". I would lease, but, I am on several programs with Nevada energy, and, send them $1...

Re: FFE Battery Size

Last Monday, I traveled 110 miles around Las Vegas on one charge. I noticed that this put me in 5th place in the EV Stretcher category for Region 2. My trip to work is right at 20 miles, so, Thursday, I decided to see how far I could go. I left work Thursday night with a full charge. Drove home, the...

Re: Ford @ CES

Some way to heat the car without killing the battery would be amazing. Let it warm the batteries at the same time. I don't care if it is some crazy technology. The Chevrolet Volt has a heated and cooled battery pack similar to the FFE. I am not sure about the FFE, but, on the Volt, if the system was...

Re: Charging at work

I work at a Casino in Las Vegas. Our company recently installed 4 chargers at several of our properties. I am not sure about other properties, but, MY boss is doing EVERYTHING that he can to discourage people from using them. You either have to be a hotel guest. or. the highest level player to be ab...

Re: What % of people on here do we guess have had shut down

I had been fighting with my Progressive insurance agent for years to get the SnapShot. At first, "It is not yet available in Las Vegas.", then, Next spring, Next Fall, This Spring, This Fall. Then, it is here, but doesn't work with Hybrid or Electric Vehicles. At the time I had a 2006 Honda Civic Hy...
