Re: 12v Battery monitoring

Interesting idea, though I think the lead acid battery may be better designed to be drained and recharged to 100% (and kept there). Also, I have to admit that the little monitor I installed may not be the best when it comes to measuring battery level. So the numbers I gave earlier should probably ta...

12v Battery monitoring

Hi all, thought I would comment on 12v battery State of Charge loss after hearing from EV owners like tesla, leaf, and others about the 12v battery when left for long periods of time. I gather it's worse with the new vw id3. So, I was wondering why vw doesn't have a gauge or have the info listed in ...

Re: Driving 100% in B mode?

I know this is an old thread but I ran across a recent video from Bjorn Nyland that essentially supports my original theory. I think it is worth noting that driving in B mode all the time is equal to or more efficient than driving in D or coasting. If you can get used to having your foot on the acce...

Re: Build Thread: Performance e-Golf

I read a paper a while back from a guy doing wind tunnel tests for volvo that stated that wheels can be up to 25% of a vehicles drag profile. Of course that doesn't translate into 25% more consumption if you go with a certain tire/rim combo, just that it increases as you get more offset and design f...

Re: Heathed windshield at night

meh, hardly notice it anymore. Originally I thought it would visually bug me, but I got used to it very quickly. I find it very useful as it uses less power than running a fan and ac for twice as long to clear the windshield. That and chipping ice and snow off the exterior is a breeze. I know the fa...

Re: Common problems

Those are some good links. Thing is, I don't think you can get an e-golf with a sunroof, so problems fixed! :) The rest seems to be car by car type of problems. There have been a couple of people mentioning here about a rumbling at high speed. So if you regularly get your car over the speed limit, t...

Re: rims and winter tires

Ya, looked around at different lists and didn't find anything I liked, in my region or that didn't have huge shipping costs. So far the distributor out of Montreal, Quattrotires.com, seems to be the winner overall. Still looking.

Re: rims and winter tires

:lol:
Hakkas do look like a nice tire, but the price increase for an improvement in ice traction only makes it a hard sell, imo. And studs are technically illegal in Ontario.

Re: rims and winter tires

Thanks! I agree with your assessment. I was just seeing if anyone had some hard data to support or disprove my theories. 1) I know this has been discussed in other threads, I just thought it would be handy to have the number in my pocket when shopping around. I've weighed my 15" steels but with rubb...
