Thanks Kermit. One other newby question: What are PIDs
They are Parameter IDs that can be accessed by having an OBD2 adapter connected. If you search for Torque Pro or Bolt PIDs you should be able to find what you need.

Re: calculating cost of electricity used

Newbee here, considering purchasing used 2016 Spark EV. I'm no pro when it comes to electricity or math. So I have a couple questions regarding calculating electricity used and cost per mile to drive a Spark EV: :? 1. I live in Seattle where residential electricity runs about 8 cents per KwH. Assum...

Re: Questions and Data tracking

I had my GOM range down to 11 miles with the last bar flashing yellowish/orange for the first time by forgetting to plug in several times this week. When I got home I used Torque pro to read the individual cell voltages and they were at 3.50 volts and it was showing 10% battery charge left. With the...

Re: Charging 101

From my experience the car will not cool the battery when plugged in and not charging; i.e. when using the departure setting before it begins to charge. My car does sit in the sun at work where it is not plugged in. It's hotter during that time than when at home plugged in at night. You may just wan...

Re: Most efficient tire alternative to stock tires

I had kumho tires on my previous car (taurus) and they wore out quickly and were extremely loud. I have Sailun Atrezzo SH406 tires on the front of my car and the stock Ecopia tires on the rear. The Sailun tires were brand new when I got the car from Carvana. I don't have much to compare them to as f...

Page 14 has a link to this model that looks like it is OEM. http://www.aliexpress.com/item/hot-sale-...
