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

I feel like EVGo is pretty clueless as to EV drivers' actual needs. Today, 115 million Americans live within a 15-minute drive of an EVgo fast charger. This fact is practically useless. Unless you cannot charge at home, practically noone charges at a DCFC within 15 minutes of where they live! And i...

Re: Precipitous drop in fully charged range before 90% update

Relying on the "estimated range" is not a very good way to determine your battery capacity. The best way is to buy an "OBD2" dongle to plug into your car, and an app for your smart phone to read and interpret it. 2nd best is to calculate your capacity by doing a FULL charge, then...

Re: Need tips on traveling from Los Angeles to SF

Nice! TY for answering my dumb question that I should've asked myself a long time ago. Does anyone have any preference re: charging services? Personally, I prefer the reliability of ChargePoint , but the real answer is "all the companies with fast chargers along the roads you plan on using&quo...

Re: Cameras didn't turn off

I always have the same set of steps when getting in ANY car : 1- open door, sit, blah, blah 2- turn on car (gas: crank engine; EV, push button) 3- BEFORE DOING ANYTHING ELSE, put foot on brake (if not already there) and put on on seatbelt 4- check all dials and gauges on instrument panel (including,...

Re: How Much I Paid for My Bolt

I will almost certainly be leasing as car technology (powertrain + autonomous driving) is changing at the fastest rate in the history of the automobile and it makes economic sense to take advantage of EV rebates multiple times while they still exist. Good call. I wonder how many folks are going to ...

Have you really put 62K miles on your Bolt in 18 months? Or is that a typo?
