Re: First "Long Drive" in Focus Electric and FFE vs. Volt

I may have missed it from your blog but how many MPH are you usually going on the trips in the summer?

Re: First "Long Drive" in Focus Electric and FFE vs. Volt

I was really surprised, too. The round trip would have been 71 miles and my range estimator was showing 80 when I left the house. The funny thing is that even though the battery percentage was showing 50%, the miles remaining was showing more miles than I had achieved with 50%. I would have expected...

First "Long Drive" in Focus Electric and FFE vs. Volt

I have had my FFElectric for about 3 weeks now. I'm in Atlanta and that means the car and I both survived Snowpocalypse 2014 and IceJam the Sequel. My normal commute is 20 miles roundtrip. I sometimes go out for lunch for a maximum of 10 miles, making my daily driving 30 miles at the most before com...

Re: First Range Challenge

I really don't understand why someone would buy an electric car without confirming they were able install a charger at their home..... and then blame the car for their range anxiety. If you were able to charge at home, I think you would enjoy your car more. If I were as miserable as you sound regard...

Re: What are you using for a charging station?

I'm using the Voltec charger that was specifically marketed for the Volt. I, too, would like to upgrade some day but I cannot justify the cost right now since I have already paid to install that one twice (I moved last summer). I hear great things about the Clipper Creek chargers. My friend who just...

Re: Warning bell chimes randomly for no apparent reason

Reminds me of the new unknown warning chimes that I kept hearing in my old car. It ended up being my phone letting me know it was my turn in Words With Friends.

Re: FFE on Ice

I agree... This car handles awesomely in the snow. I was stuck traveling for hours, too. I ended up returning to my work (after the road I needed became blocked) and spent the night there but not before stopping at Walgreens for an hours worth of charging.

Re: Front license plate holder

Hey Ben! Yes, that is the one I bought. I test drove it Friday for about 10 mins and then went back Saturday morning for a longer test drive and ended up getting it. The dealership did offer to remove it (but not repair the holes that would be left behind). I asked after I made the final deal (which...
