Re: Usinig yesterday's drive to calculate today's range? Understanding the Guess-O-Meter?

Problem is that my driving is NEVER consistent as noted by my short week driving above. I'm also still in the honeymoon phase of owning the FFE and still figuring it out. I kinda like the spaceship noises it makes under hard acceleration and regenerative braking. Right now, I'm sitting at a full cha...

Usinig yesterday's drive to calculate today's range? Understanding the Guess-O-Meter?

I'm not entirely sure I understand the battery gauge on the dashboard. I always start the morning's drive with a full charge off of my 240 VAC Level 2 EVSE. I do NOT have Low Rolling Resistance tires on my FFE, so I probably have a range penalty due to this. I'm okay with that. Thursday, I had to go...

Thoughts on cruising around in "L" mode all the time?

I know there's no shiftable gears in the transmission and it's a one speed gear reduction box.
I like the additional regenerative braking it provides.
Just wondering if it'll ruin anything.

Re: VERY short trips bad?

I wouldn't think so.
I use my FFE to drop my kids off at school a half mile away.
(Why there isn't a law stating that there should be sidewalks on all roads within a mile of a school is beyond me.)

$10 here in Virginia.

Except for my ham radio plates on my truck. It's a buck.

Re: Stock Sony Amplifier / Subwoofer?

According to the factory wiring diagrams, there is no amplifier for the FFE stereo system and no subwoofer. Just five speakers (Plus tweeters, less the one in the dashboard.) equating to nine total speakers. https://imgur.com/a/rbjQYlO When I do upgrade my FFE's stereo, I will catalog my journey in ...

Re: New potential owner; First post.

The FFE is not a bad car, but with it basically being an experiment car it will definitely have it issues. By the way you describe your knowledge back round, doing the coolant repair on the FFE when the time comes shouldn't be hard, just tedious and time consuming. Also, try to reframe from doing o...
