Re: Potential Buyer questions

Definitely get the DC FC.
Vinyl seats have worn well after 5 yers they still look and feel good.

Low resistance tires god but not necessary.
Good luck!

Re: Bolt/Spark Battery Swap? I would love to be a replaceme

I'm at 30,000 miles with my 2014 L2. No sign of diminished capacity Would love to drvie my Spark forever. I'm on the list fo...

Re: First SAE CCS Fast Charging station in MD

Did my first DC fast charge last week in Willow Grove Pa! Didn't need much juice. I just wanted to see if my DC FC port worked. It did! 7 kWh in about seven minutes.

Winter took a big hit on efficiency. Lifetime mpg e onboard now at 5.1miles/kWh or 173 mpgE. With 10% l...

Mark,
I will try to make it there for your NDEW event if I am in state. I am about 30 miles east of Kennett. Had a silver Spark EV for about two months.

Re: Bought one - finally

Congrats ELPWR...Did you get it from Miller Brothers in Md? They have a lot of SparkEVs. That is where I got mine. Will be quite a coup if you get the FEd $7500 ITC as well!
