Re: Trip Report: Bakersfield, California to LAX in a Bolt

If you purchase the proper transducer from AAA discounted, you can switch over from Interstate 5 to I-110 and then the express lanes to the express lanes of I-105 to the airport for perhaps a quicker ride. I find these transducers work on the tollroads in Orange County and the Toll Bridges in Northe...

Re: Trip from Santa Cruz to Tuolumne

Thanks for your tips, but I got the flu so for now, the trip is canceled.

I rarely come across those Tesla style units, so I can't justify the cost of a converter for one trip.

Trip from Santa Cruz to Tuolumne

Next week I am going to drive from Santa Cruz to the Black Oak Casino Resort in Tuolumne, CA. I previously did this trip two years ago in my Chevy Volt with of course no problems.

In Los Angeles I have noticed when the weather is "cold" here the GOM after a recharge is about 199 but when the recent Santa Ana heat wave returned, it went back to 225 to 238.

Re: Is the rear view camera usable at night?

I am in "camera" mode 98% of the time.

I sometimes switch to "mirror" mode when the rains obscure the camera.

Re: Can I use a splitter to charge 2 Bolts?

You mean to tell me that the crappy "portable" plug that lives in the trunk of every bolt on the lot of every dealership is actually a TurboCord in disguise? Except that the modified OEM adapter that GM/Chevy supplies only charges at 12 amps and the TurboCord will charge at 16 amps at 240...

Re: Do not use EVgo fast chargers. No, seriously. Just don't.

OK, it's a "manual" restart - you have to use a telephone and (gasp) TALK with someone !!! OMG ! The following was inspired by a MichaelLAX post - one of the most useful posts he ever made on this forum. (but the below has been modified by me). You're both (SparkE & MichaelLAX) out of...
