"Old" Forum Reopened

Well, wasn't that an interesting ride? Firstly, I'd like to apologise to those of you who have suffered through the prolonged outage. For those of you who are just relieved to have your forum back and don't really care what happened, feel free to seek more interesting stuff elsewhere. Still here? O...

THIS Forum Moving to new Platform Tues Night 9 Dec

Hi Mike,

Yes, the new forum platform will enable us to tidy up a lot of things like that. Meanwhile, you can see info about the AEVA Perth Branch meeting (which is on tonight) here: http://aeva.asn.au/content/perth-branch-meeting.

Cheers,

THIS Forum Moving to new Platform Tues Night 9 Dec

Hi All, The forum migration is finally ready to go. I plan to shut down this WebWiz forum tomorrow (Tuesday 9 December) at around 09:30 UTC (20:30 AEDT, 17:30 WA time), back it up and hand the data over to gConverters. They think the conversion will take 6-7 hours so I hope to have the new (phpBB) f...

Outlander PHEV Field trip

Talk about coincidences. This discussion led me to dig out our receipts and do the maths. We've done 10257 km so far in our PHEV and we've put a total of 184.15L in the tank which is now 3/4 full, so lets call it 195L (it's a 40L tank). That gives us 195/10257*100 = 1.9 l/100km Pretty close to their...

Hi All, Well, it's taken much longer than we expected, but we reckon we've finally got a data conversion that we can run with. Firstly, I'd like to acknowledge the huge effort from Weber and Coulomb in helping test numerous iterations of the new forum while we got the data conversion bugs ironed out...

Outlander PHEV + Canion = Possible?

Hi Guys, Will be interesting to see what Torque can pick up here on the PHEV. It's dead as a dodo on my I-Miev, most likely due to the fact the can data is bespoke... The Torque info was interesting, thanks for the link Adverse Effects . Reecho , I suspect that if the iMiev CAN data is bespoke, the ...

Outlander PHEV + Canion = Possible?

Actually, thinking through this more, the MMC (Mitsu Media Console) that came with our vehicle can display lots of detail about power consumption, fuel consumption etc which implies the MMC probably gets a CAN feed. I wonder if that is made available via the MMC Bluetooth connection? More research ...

Outlander PHEV + Canion = Possible?

Hi Reecho, Don't think Canion will work out of the box. Canion actually reads all CAN data and picks the relevant data from the headers. More than likely the headers will be specific to the "Brendan". Might be worth giving it a shot. The guys who wrote Canion might see it as a bit of a challenge to ...

Just been reading about the iMiev + Canion experiences and it got me wondering if this might be possible with the Outlander PHEV. Firstly, has anyone with an Outlander tried it? After reading a bit in the iMiev topics, I rushed out to our car and confirmed that we have an obd -ii plug (though I'm ne...

I agree there's no technical reason you can't just change over to a 10A plug and add some cable. However, if the friend's house happens to burn down while you're plugged in because little Johnny was playing with matches out the back, you know who they'll blame, don't you! EVs are still very new to t...

Membership of the AEVA

It's worth pointing out that there's only one category of membership, notwithstanding anything you might have seen or read on other threads.

Some people volunteer for committees and/or other functions, but we're still ordinary members.

The "Search" problem could also be because of "default" forum settings and the fact that we can't log in:
https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtop ... &t=1991395.
I will look at this later today and see if we can fix it via the forum settings. Have to go out for a few hours right now.

Hi Coulomb, Re the links, I'd hoped they would convert them to "relative" links so they'd work properly regardless of what forum they were on. IOW, http://forums.aeva.net.au/blah..blah would simply become /blah..blah. We may do this anyway as a global-search-and-replace after the conversion has been...

Thanks Weber for this post and all the effort you've put into informing members about the forum conversion efforts.
