Re: Revisiting the A/C on while on auto

My AC seems to be active even when the AC button is turned OFF. Fan is on LO, AC off, and still cold air seeps through. I have to turn the entire climate control system power button off to get the ice-cold air from "leaking" out of the vents (plus, I still have some air coming out of my lower vents ...

Uniden police scanners: APCO 25 Phase I/II

Uniden HP-1 [APCO25 Phase I-only]: While not really an FFE-specific "mod," I thought maybe some others here may be interested in hearing about Uniden's latest APCO25-capable digital scanners (note that old analog scanners can no longer receive current digital radio transmissions). I chose the Unide...

Re: Revisiting the A/C on while on auto

I seem to average about 8 kWh for a 31.6 mile in-bound commute with only AC.

Re: What's the lowest GOM miles you've arrived home with?

Yes, I came to that realization tonight about identifying the charging destinations as such. The topography in the area I was in was pretty extreme, so I was super skeptical of the GOM's idea of what I had left. You're a much bolder man than me. Anything under 10 miles on the GOM would make me reall...

What's the lowest GOM miles you've arrived home with?

After work today, I thought I'd visit my dad in Orange County, leaving straight from work in Burbank. It's a 48-mile drive, and I didn't leave work with a full charge due to a short-shift. I was driving 100% freeway at a "moderate" 65 MPH cruise-controlled, constant speed (even drafting behind a sem...

Re: Revisiting the A/C on while on auto

Good question. I've been leaving my AC either on LOW (i.e., coldest setting), or OFF, so that I didn't activate any heating elements. At times, I would like to modulate the temperature to something like 68 or 70 degrees, but feared I would burn up too much kW.

Re: Zippy or Zen - Who's the Zippiest of them all?

Ha! Glad to hear I'm not the only one. My favorite sprint is the El Segundo Blvd onramp to the 405 North. It's a short run between the onramp and the HOV lane entrance, and everyone in the left two lanes is usually going 75mph+. Typically pegging it at 85-86mph to merge into the HOV lane. Workplace...

Re: ST spoiler (replica) installation:

Thanks! I've got to pull the spoiler and see what's inhibiting the sides from fully seating (right is worse than the left). I think the foam tape covering the unused hole is too thick. I'm going to pull it up, make sure the body clip inserted correctly, then apply some HVAC metal adhesive to cover t...
