Pack voltage coolant heaters

No I don't know if you can get these things in Aus, but then again I don't think you really want an aussie sourced my unit anyway as they are 240V. I got mine cheap from a US seller on EBAY and I know that JC Witney will ship them here no problem.

Heater-- Demister

It is still not as hot as the orginal (water) heater. Interestingly a couple of the guys on the DIYEV forum have tried my idea of using a zerostart type coolant heater and a water pump with the cars original heater core (see previous posts this thread). One guy claims it rivals his original heater ...

It has been said above essentially that "it is my EV so I will do as I like". It is one thing to do your own 240V electrical wiring in your home (which technically is illegal). If someone gets a shock or a fire results it will be yourself/your family who will suffer the consequences and no one else...

I dont see why we need to have item 1. LPG type labeling should be sufficient, emergency personnel are trained to look for them. Other labeling should be a matter of choice. With item 2, the legislators set the rules that we must comply to. as long as we do comply then we shouldn't have to explain a...
