Cheers @rhills I've sent a couple of PM's to @Kel too, maybe he just doesn't use the interwebs often.

Hi Kel, working out whether I have finances for these parts to kick my project off which stalled ages ago, it's a bargain! Assuming a 1k Zilla and the spare motor is an Impulse 9 too?

I'll see if I can ask someone at work about these claims. There's some journal articles linked below about graphene and supercapacitors for those people that understand more than me about it.

Hydrogen

It would make sense when we have too much energy to use - e.g. off-peak when we have enough solar for 100% of peak load. And at that point you might as well pump water uphill for hydro later on Yeah less trouble and more efficiency. All this talk of exporting our renewable energy while we still bur...

Hydrogen will no doubt be a part of the future of energy and electric vehicles, especially with renewable energy powering production.

I'll address the car issues in this thread. VW sucks. I have one of the affected dieselgate vehicles, but it has another problem which can be seen in the video below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpVBr2D1Y0U I bought it just out of warranty with 75k km. I bought it because VW raved that it got th...

The full Hyundai Ioniq range headed down under

They would potentially be cannibalising a large chunk of revenue with regards to service, parts and repairs given the decreased need with EV's. Yes somewhat, but that is also a bit of a myth in the real world with brand new cars, Leaf scheduled servicing is more expensive than Hyundai i30 over 3 ye...

Concern: 'New 2012' in 2016

Thanks for the info, we're yet to visit the dealer but I will be trying to talk them down as far as possible, and definitely making sure the warranty terms are confirmed. The Canberra dealer site lists 8 available, all seem to be black, there only appears to be one red one left in the country as 'ne...

Concern: 'New 2012' in 2016

We're looking at taking the plunge on one of the handful of new (150-190 km on clock, complied last year it seems) Leafs that have popped up on Carsales. After reading this thread I'll get hold of Leafspy and the ODB2 scan tool. There are a few good second handers but we're looking at a 3 year lease...

Great thread on what is achievable. I thought I'd be looking at $20k budget for a DC build (plan was: http://forums.aeva.asn.au/viewtopic.php?title=my-e318is-build&t=4497), turns out that figure is a minimum for parts and battery, especially now that the dollar has gone south.
