Re: RETROFIT SOUND GENERATOR FOR EV?

Why risk such things going badly when a simple noise generator would alert those on foot there was a vehicle approaching? Mike beat me to it, but my ICE Golf cruising at 40km/h would be as quiet as your Prius, sometimes I can't tell if the engine is running from inside the car. We could take a leaf...

Re: Cheapest Commuting Challenge

Looking at the numbers here I'd roughly hit the same 5c km on my converted 350w rear hub drive bike which has around 4300km on it. I only just got back on it this week after a long hiatus. I'm in Canberra so the times work out each way about 15 minutes in the car and about 30 minutes on the bike for...

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?

Re: Arvio 3.5kWh drop-in-battery-replacement supercapacitor on sale

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.

I heard through the grapevine this has been sold - to be reverted to an ICE.

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...

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...

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.

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.
