Probably due to higher inflation of the tires due to higher exterior temperatures. I've also started seeing 200+km on the GOM and we live in the same climate. Last time I checked my tire pressure, it was up to 45 psi, instead of the 41 psi I put some weeks ago.joeyfraser wrote:Summer is coming soon and we already have higher numbers on the GOM this morning!
132.5 miles / 212 km.
Thanks for sharing! Depending on how long you are at your destination 200ish km away, you could just stop for 15 min at a quick charge to give you a little buffer to get to your destination and then L2 charge once you are there. This of course assumes L2 charging is available and you are there long enough for it to charge. Then you could head home with maybe another 15min break to add a little range buffer.pcph wrote:I want to share my experience with fast charging my 2017 FFE.
I recently did a trip of 200+ km one way, with a stop in the middle to fast charge.

I don't personally find an hour delay to be horrible if I'm by myself, but I can see that it might be trying for a passenger who wasn't into the whole "EV" thing. I look for opportunities and excuses to build breaks into my day, so I actually see this as a plus.
We have indeed. But why stop now?EVA wrote:Wow we have taken this thread a long ways off track...
Not really "joking", but more "lighthearted". I'm completely kidding with the word "obligated", but really, who wouldn't want to see that? (Also, my "middle of nowhere" might mean just more than a kilometre from a coffee shop.) You could take the word "free" out of my sentence, and it would still mean the same to me, as long as anybody could sign up.Even though you put a joking face at the end of the WiFi statement, I'm guessing you would like to see that happen.
Or better yet: "Hey, why don't we take a break? We'll find something nearby to interest you while I sit here with my own thoughts. Oh, and I can charge the car while I contemplate things."The passenger thing depends a lot on the person, and how you approach the trip. Flipping around from, oh darn we have this EV we HAVE to charge for an hour, let's figure something out to do. To, hey let's have a picnic or go out to dinner / lunch / breakfast - and while we're there we can charge the car. That's a whole different program.
