I have come to the conclusion that my EV with a 90 ah pack was not suited to my rural area, that is return trip to Bairnsdale being about 60 km. At first I struggled to do the trip but as the batteries got older I had more problems and tried to boost my capacity by fitting a set of 40ah lithium in parallel with my 90ah set, this did not work as it seems that the 40ah set could not cope with my 200 amp demand and they started to fail.
I continued to use the car with the 90ah set for shorter trips but then I suffered a setback when one of my chargers (I use three 48 volt chargers) failed and drained 15 of my 90ah batteries to 0 volts thus killing them, I have continued to use the car for short trips with only the remaining 30 batteries but that seems to be to much of a strain and I now have 2 more batteries fail and I assume that I will have more fail if I continue to use the car.
If I was to continue to use the car I would need to buy a 130 ah or 180 ah pack and I would replace the 3 48 volt chargers with 1 160 volt charger. I cannot afford to do that so have decided to sell, the 180 ah pack advertised by “Canberra32” would give my car a very good range, my 90 ah pack gave me a range of 70 kms when new so 180 ah should go well over 150kms.
