Re: Used 2017 Bolt with 115,000 miles-need advice

My 2-cents: get it ASAP… But the one-pedal driving is just awesome. I second all those comments! There is an Uber driver on the other Chevy Bolt EV forum with 130,000 miles and no problems! I also drive Uber and my 2019 is at 55,000 miles and due for a new battery early next month. One-Pedal Drivin...

Re: Range with post-recall (new) battery pack

Are you actually achieving these mileage numbers or just seeing them on the Guess-O-Meter?

Re: Battery Degradation with high mile usage

Stop DCFC at 80% and top off to 100% at L1 or L2 at home.

Usually I go from about 28% to 80% at DCFC, drive down some then go to 93% with L2 at home.

The lowest I have gone before L2 charging at home is 5%.

I hypermiled on the way home to keep it from going lower.

Those poor orphaned souls. Harmed needlessly by GM's original marketing of the Bolt EV as "less than $30,000"

Re: Battery Degradation with high mile usage

Many horror stories are told by the first-adopters of the Nissan Leaf and its battery degradation. GM learned much from its release of the Spark EV, the Chevy Volt and now the Chevy Bolt EV/EUV. My opinion, FWIW, is that your plan to use two L2 chargers, is the best way to do it for battery health. ...

Re: 2017 Aftermarket DCFC

I am sorry you have decided to repeat all of your same claims as before. So, I will repeat my responses: In January, 2017, the Chevy Bolt EV was introduced as the ONLY car (other than a Tesla) with an EV driving range in excess of 200 miles per charge. Before that; most EVs drove in the 80-100 mile ...

Just for giggles, does the 22 Niro EV offer the DCFC as an "option" or do all of them include it as a necessary feature to a modern day EV?

Re: Aftermarket DC fast charge options

Lack of an DCFC and not affirmatively explaining its absence is criminal!

Modern Day EVGo and Electrify America

Now that I am driving Uber full-time again, I notice: 1) Many EVGo’s here in SoCal have been modified to put a 3rd charger cord and plug for Teslas; and 2) all sorts of Electrify Americas have popped up to be convenient for my random Uber long range late night charging needs. The EA $4 monthly fee i...

Re: Installing a AC120V pure sine wave inverter.

They say turn on, switch to Neutral, put brake on, exit thru passenger door

I have not tried it yet

I would also turn off lights, fan and defrost
