Re: How doI know if I can use this outlet?

I would suggest you "future proof" by installing the 50A 6 AWG circuit 6 ga. wire is very costly for more than a few feet, We are talking about a difference in cost of $20 for 50 ft. of 6/3 VS 8/3, for me it was money well invested. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Southwire-50-ft-6-3-Stranded...

Re: Leasing discussion ("what % of people lease")

Michael, I'm no expert on leasing, but doesn't raising the residual by applying the $7500 tax credit lower the cost of the lease? Maybe I'm missing something, but all I know is I'm leasing. $40k MSRP car for $250 a month, that doesn't seem possible unless that $7500 is being used to lower the lease...

at least now i know the reset button sequence. that speeds things up rather than waiting for the watchdog to fire.


Sigh... here is to "looking forward to 14.5.1" ;-)

Re: My friend wants to buy an EV, and ...

My friend is definitely interested. I really appreciate the link above to deals all over the country. We've identified the car ... likely this one because he wants heated seats and DCFC. He doesn't care so much about color, as long as it's not dark grey like mine. He doesn't want to be twinnsies :(...

Re: Question for the community

I like to sleep. I generally charge my car at home after 11pm to take advantage of time of use pricing. Same here, my use case is mostly charging at home overnight or destination charging at a hotel (L2) My desired use is occasional longer distance travel with a DCFC stop, at that stop it would be ...

Re: CCS Network

Q: So you did or did not buy an EV? If you bought an EV, then "long distance travel" wasn't that big of an issue I leased an EV with the DCFC option, long distance travel was a big issue for me, so before leasing I contacted the folks in NYS that were planning to install them and asked &q...

Re: CCS Network

Frankly, I don't think that long-distance travel is a real issue ... don't think that many people drive over 200 miles one way very often. All good points, however my personal experience is much different. My Wife's family lives 241 miles from our home, we travel to see them about 10x per year. If ...
