iMiev Safari Sydney to Brisbane

Good question, I missed a stop. We stopped at Maclean River Caravan Park for a top up and went for a coffee and a walk. Ah, I thought the good Dr might have lent you his e-jerry can for that leg! My wife had a chuckle at the BP charge. Did you have to pay for the charge at any of the stops? If anyo...

Hats off to you, that's so impressive! Thanks for posting.

A couple of questions, how did you do the Ballina 125km leg? Also, did you have to forego airconditioning to get to any destinations as it would have been pretty hot on occasions?

Awesome trip, thanks for posting. I feel a bit vulnerable in the iMiEV when passing Bdoubles just going from Gosford to Hornsby, so you are doing well for your huge trip.

Fuel efficient tip for driving the Outlander

used battery only mode, only using 'Charge' on the faster stretches if the battery is running low. what is my best option? Its been a long time since I was in Busselton area but from memory its pretty flat. For a trip you can do entirely on EV, only press ECO. If you can't make it on pureEV, press ...

I push ECO every trip. If you push it when driving you can feel the acceleration drop. Also the airconditioning is not as powerful.

For the purpose of experimentiation, I would be willing to give you one of my old cells for free. There is a youtube video from the canIon App creator which gives pretty clear instructions on swapping out one cell in an iMiEV, which Martin did successfully. So the only real issue is finding a 2nd h...

Ausgrid have informed me that any device can be attached to an off-peak meter as long as it is signed off by the installer. ....

I got some of those screws out by mashing the side of the blade of a cheapo small screwdriver with a hammer. It then fitted two of the three sides. Thanks for the tip Johny - I managed to get 1 screw off and drilled the other out. Unfortunately there is no fuse visible, including under the main PCB...

Just confirmed that ours (2010 iMiEV) has no SD card in it and works fine. Thanks Mike, I thought it was just a bit of BS to get my wife out of the service dept.

I-MIEV Battery Replacement warning

50ah nominal (LEV50 cells)from the factory but more than 48ah after a capacity test. As far as I have read, the PHEV uses LEV50N which just "has higher durability in a hot environment" than the LEV50 - lev50-vs-lev50n In this they state "14.5 kWh (80 cells)" whereas the PHEV has 12kWh in its 80 cel...

Interesting 36.8ah. Given a new Imiev has 48ah Well I've been told the 80 cell battery in the PHEV is 40Ah "nominal" and from the 10 or so I have tested with my App worldwide, none have been over 38.2Ah including a brand new 2016MY PHEV. That would make the iMiEV 40 x 88/80 or 44Ah, not 48Ah wouldn...

The radio/nav in our 2010 iMiEV has gone on the blink.... the Nav now no longer gets any satellites. The dealer agrees the radio is part of the car's 5 year warranty, however they say the GPS stopped working because we don't have an SDcard in it. I don't believe this as it clearly shows there is no...

Using ex I-MIEV battery in home solar

How long do you think you can safely leave an iMiEV battery pack out of a car without charging the cells, especially if the charge state before removal is unknown? I'm thinking it might be a costly exercise to keep some LEV50 cells alive until such time as one is needed for a "cell transplant" if yo...

Definitely a 2010 so it will have LEV50 cells.
