Re: The Chevy Bolt Is the Ugly Car of the (Very Near) Future

the real reason for low sale volume: cheap gas ! remove oil/gas subsidies and let the market prices the real cost. Imagine $7/gal, guzzlers would be parked. We have 2x 2017 Bolts, and have been very impressed for a 1st generation product. You can slap a bunch of solar PV on your roof and make your o...

Re: EVGo announces a new partnership with GM for 5 year tripling of stations

How about a couple of DCFC plugs at each petrol gas station

Re: RECALL

I think i've 100% charged my 2017 twice since owning it on Jan 1, 2017. And those occasions were just before a long trip so wanted to maximize range. For maximum battery longevity, it's recommended to hover around 50% SOC, best daily charge range is 40%-75%

Re: Recommended Tire Brands

My 2017 Bolt is also getting new tires in coming days as wet weather is coming. The OEM tires had lasted over 76Kmiles, surprisingly. I usually just go with the lowest cost, no performing driving here.

no, energy flows from main HV pack to 12v aux to external 12v to house. Eventually the Bolt big pack gets depleted, then I have to make a run into town to "refill"

Re: Bolt = Big battery?

I have an external 12v pack, to which the DC/AC inverter is connected to power critical loads. That external 12v pack is replenished by the Bolt's 12v via a jumper cable for fast power dump, or through a boost charge controller.

Re: Drive the ARC

I've sucked down over 350 kWh of free CCS juice from them. Oddly, when using the free reservation charges, the transactions ($ and kWh dispensed) don't show up in the EVgo app, so if one wants to track the # of kWh from those sessions, you gotta do it manually. I have yet to make a reservation, so ...

Re: Bolt = Big battery?

I think between $4-5K, plus $1-2K for the Black-Out option (probably for the transfer switch etc...). The web site is not really user friendly, yet. But here's a link to their June Faq: https://www.ossiaco.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/dcbel-by-Ossiaco-FAQ-v1.1.pdf I also find this blurb on solar-P...

Re: Red Tail lights?

they seem only to come on upon pushing lock/unlock on the key fob, sort of like to provide lighting for loading
