Re: Questions and Data tracking

I wanted to post my data in case anyone is interested in how it is tracking. I charged to 100% and the GOM is up to 108 miles. 16.2000 kWh at 13,316 miles. The average was 6.5mi/kWh this past month and I used 65.8kWh over 429 miles. Fuel is $2.43/ gallon here now and electricity is $0.074 per kWh so...

Re: Energy History Gauge

Very flat and typically not over 40 MPH. We are in West TN so not much elevation change.

Energy History Gauge

Does anyone know if the energy history gauge goes above 6 mi/kWh?

Re: Drive home 100 mile legs... How slow to drive?

I'm averaging 6.5 mi/kWh traveling on average 30-40mph in the city. With my capacity currently at 16kWh that is about 104 miles of range if you can use every bit of the battery. That would be too close for me and there are too many variables over 350 miles that could pop up. I would think doing the ...

Re: Car locks and unlocks itself

Not all metal tins work. We had a tin and put the keys in it with the key near the car and it still unlocked the door, we tried aluminum foil over them and that also did not work. We got some cheap pouches from Amazon and we slip our cars in them and they work great even with the fob right next to t...

Re: New Owner! Just got a 2015 Spark EV w/ 26000!

I've never read anything definitive about a reserve just a lot of assumptions based off of the Gen 1 Volt. If Torque Pro is right my cells are at about 4.128 Volts when fully charged in my 2016 Spark EV which would be 98.29% (assuming 4.2V is 100% charged per cell.) Our Gen 2 Volt reads as high as ...

Re: Spark EV - An affordable electric racecar (my build thread)

I I can not answer your question but I know the Spark EV has an electrical component under the driver seat that sticks up a little bit and it is not on the ICE version. Hopefully the bracket will clear it. I'm interested to hear what you find out.

Re: Battery degredation

I purchased mine from Carvana off of a lease as well. It was a 2016 and originally showed 16.2667 with Torque pro. It is now at 16.0667 with ~13,000 miles on it just for reference. I drive very conservatively (averaging 6-7kWh per mile) and after a month of driving the range went from a full charge...

Re: NEW Owner spark ev 2015 lt2

I don't tend to drive in L but I do shift into L when I need to slow down for a stop light or anytime I need to slow down quickly.
