Plug In Day 23-9-12

Sunday September 23rd is National Plug In Day in the USA. We thought we would do our bit by pluging in at the Chargepoint outlets at Rouse Hill Town Center. We'll take some pictures and then grab a bite to eat in the shopping center.

Meet around 10:00am at the Chargepoint spots.

I drove my little electric Suzuki Carry from Sydney to the Newcastle EV Festival and back last weekend. That's 350 km!! Of course there were a couple of recharge stops along the way but with a bit of planing EVs can go anywhere. http://forums.aeva.asn.au/uploads/2577/Newcastle4.jpg Newcastle EV line...

Tricking the ECU to think there is an ICE

Ian (ibruinsma) here in Sydney has been attempting to outsmart his Smart car with the same idea. He is very close to completion. A lot harder than you may think on some cars.

Engineer requests

FYI. Before going for an Engineers Inspection here in NSW you must contact the RTA, or what ever they call themselves now, for an engine number. They will generate a number which will need to be stamped on the motor before inspection.
