    E Golf 2017-Squeaking noise

    Mine has been squeaking for years when turning at low speed. This phenomenon occurs during cold temperatures. Never been an issue during spring, summer and fall. Is this really the brakes, even when not applied?

    Most efficient LRR tire to replace Ecopia 422

    Continental ExtremeContact DWS06 is a fantastic tire. I have it on my Mercedes adventure vehicle. I'm having a very hard time believing that your impact was only 3%. This tire is extreme grip by design, the complete opposite side of the spectrum from Ecopia. What was your test mythology? To...

    Most efficient LRR tire to replace Ecopia 422

    Ecopia 422 is the king of efficiency, period. Recently,, I switched to Nokian One. Have been really impressed with it. Grips in dry and wet is superior to Ecopia 422 Much quieter Range impact ~5% including city and highway up 70 mph. This is based on extensive testing on the same day with...

    High mileage but young ... what is the battery risk?

    I wanted to give more insight about calendar years that “f1geek” mentioned. Battery age is something to consider. Someone reported 3% degradation with OBDeleven just for letting a battery sit idle (e.g., 0 miles clocked in 12 months). Let this sink in for a moment. Car hasn’t been driven for a...

    Most efficient LRR tire to replace Ecopia 422

    Pirelli launched P ZERO ALL SEASON PLUS elect (OEM tire on Lucid) www.pirelli.com/tires/en-us/car/catalog/product/pzero-as-plus-elect Sadly, 235/45/18 won't fit our e-Golf. At this point it's safe to say that tire manufacturers won't focus their resources on small 205/55/16 low resistance...

    Most efficient LRR tire to replace Ecopia 422

    Wait, your attempt was to deliver data without real world testing? Consistency is the key. Find a protocol and stick with it. I thought that I provided enough detail in simple test methodology. Let's add more details to the mix. Attempt to do the runs on the same day. It's irrelevant if you are...

    Most efficient LRR tire to replace Ecopia 422

    I'm stating facts. Validated with different set of wheels and tires. Your coasting test doesn't have enough data to draw a conclusion. Try spending more effort on your methodology. Find a road, at least 10 miles long with some rolling hills. Ensure outdoor temperature doesn't fluctuate more...

    Most efficient LRR tire to replace Ecopia 422

    The link you provided is for general discussion of tires. This thread is specifically for the availability and selection of low resistance tires. Your Yokahama Avid Ascend is not a low resistance tire. VW dealer took advantage of you by selling you a generic tire.

    Most efficient LRR tire to replace Ecopia 422

    Never trust salespeople from tire shops. They'll try to sell you whatever is in stock or whatever they can get faster out the door. Ecopia is not a "soft" tire. It's an extremely firm tire, built for one goal in mind - low rolling resistance for coasting. Ultimate all-season tire is Michelin...

    Looks like there's nothing out there better than Ecopia 422 :o I was too optimistic about Michelin Energy Saver. www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=31689

    Several Bolt drivers reported 15% loss in range CrossClimate 2 compared to OEM Energy Saver tire (these are neck-to-neck with Ecopia 422) www.chevybolt.org/threads/just-purchased-the-michelin-crossclimate-2.36168

    Most efficient LRR tire to replace Ecopia 422

    I have been lurking around Bolt forums. Drivers are not happy with OEM Michelin Energy Saver. I can't imagine that it would be any worse than Ecopia 422, when it comes to grip in foul-weather.

    Most efficient LRR tire to replace Ecopia 422

    I'm looking to replace My Ecopia 422 set. One of them is not repairable and the other one is worn down to 4/32 in 30k miles. Rears seem to be OK at 7/32. I'm uncertain if I'd want to invest in a new set of Ecopia. I only care about range, thus seeking the most efficient tire. Based on direct...

    Build Thread: Performance e-Golf

    Did you happen to weight the wheels before you mounted General Gmax AS-05? Typically, there's a discrepancy with an advertised weight https://konigwheels.com/wheels/main-line-wheels/runlite Could you snap a picture to show the wheel gap on front and rear?

    Build Thread: Performance e-Golf

    Why are you lurking around on "Build Thread: Performance e-Golf" thread? Aren't you supposed to be drafting behind big trucks on the boulevard at 6.5 kWh, below the speed limit? Not everyone wants to collide into your driving habits. Many of us love to spin tires, rail corners, upgrade the...

    charging to 90%

    If cell balancing kicks in at 3.9 Volts, then there's no point to charge 100% SoC. 100% SoC = 4.07 Volts (with ~12% buffer, thanks to German engineering) 80% SoC = 3.94 Volts 70% SoC = 3.87 Volts

    Did you notice battery/range issues over time ?

    Did you use OBDeleven to extract the data? There's a relevant thread www.myvwegolf.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=564&start=30 but wanted to find if there's an alternative.
