Re: Oil Leak!!!!

The motor has an oil pan that uses a gasket. You may just have to lightly snug up the bolts, if you see any seepage around it.

You're saying the Spark EV's Onstar service offers WIFI hotspot within the car?

Started with the 2015.

Re: 12 volt battery life ?

VW dealers have solar chargers from VW, that plug into the ALDL to keep the batteries charged in the cars, while they're sitting on the lot, or at least they're suppose to.

Re: Questions and Data tracking

As I did last time, I fully charged the car so the energy screen zeroed out and I reset the trip.

Re: Questions and Data tracking

Back in January, I reported that the battery kWh was 11.5, according to Torque Pro. This last charge, I started with 53 miles on the GOM and I drove 66.3 miles, with 9 miles left on the GOM.
