Re: PHEV + EV Household

Howdy! Volt owner for about 10 months. We love it so much (220mpg average) we got a FFE on Tuesday. 240v charger on the to-do list became 240v STAT due to circuit overload trying to charge both. HVAC contractor friend came out last night to assess the job needs (50amp). I ordered a Clipper Creek la...

Re: PHEV + EV Household

As a north metro Atlanta resident, I purchased my certified pre-owned FFE advertized online from a Missouri dealer who arranged transport to my Georgia home for less than $700 shipping fee. So far, so good. Although my deal was a successful transaction, I remain reluctant to endorse such a plan for...

Re: PHEV + EV Household

I learned that Sandy Springs Ford buys all the FFEs that get allocated to dealers within about 250 miles. And do this with other 'desirable' or limited availability vehicles. Given their location - North Fulton/East Cobb, they know people in the area are able to pay what they ask. They gave me exac...

Re: range question for current FFE owners

Looks like its about 60 summer and I guess maybe 40 winter? . . . if I keep the 10mi buffer? We average around 350Whr/mi on the Tesla during the winter and probably closer to 300 in the summer. I was surprised to see FFE isn't too much lower. Anyhow, looking for feedback if my range projections are...

Re: PHEV + EV Household

My wife mentioned the other day that she hasn't touched a gas pump in almost four months. She drives our Focus Electric for her work commute and around town. In my previous job, I was able to charge at work. At one point, I drove our Fusion Energi for seven weeks, 1,600 miles, without stopping at a ...

Go ahead and get your 30 Amp EVSE installed so that you can charge in a reasonable amount of time.

Re: PHEV + EV Household

Somebody is all in with Ford. :D Funny how that happened. My wife and I have come full circle, having both started with Fords 44 years ago and then going off into Volvos, Olds, Toyota, Plymouth, Pontiacs, and a Honda. My son bought a used 2009 Ford Focus a few years ago and it has been a champ, the...
