Re: (Review) RGM Rearguard vs. tailgate scratches...

So glad I found this thread. I'm going to look into ordering this, but wonder how long it might take to get it delivered during this time. I think mine came DHL. Passenger flights may be limited, but I think outfits like DHL and FED EX, which have their own cargo planes, are still flying (and DHL i...

Re: Thoughts on cutting off 100% to account for lost capacity?

the whole procedure takes about a day at the dealership...if it could be determined by the car itself, Not sure that the car could keep a 'running' accurate capacity determination. My understanding of how the dealerships do the battery capacity test, is the battery is drained/discharged of charge, ...

Re: Yellow Engine Light and Code FFC895 Permanent Error for "EME"

The Range "Extender Electrical Machine" is the electricity generator that the Range Extender gas engine spins, to generates electricity to feed to the HV battery for 'extending' the driving range. https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/i01-i3-rex-hat/components-connectors/components/components-with-m/m2...

Re: 6.6 Kwh chargepoint delivers 6.1 Kwh?

I typically charge from near empty and the charge maxes out at 6.1kW where the Chargepoint EVSE indicates it's capable of doing 6.6kW. Was wondering why this discrepancy existed, Kilowatt hours is calculated by taking the 'appliance' wattage, multiplying it by the number of hours of 'run-time', the...

Re: 20" wheels, Rex vs. Non-Rex, 2014 vs. 2017

Our 2014 BEV has lost ~15% of its new usable battery pack capacity over 5.5 years and only 10k miles which is consistent with the Idaho National Labs findings. Would be nice if there were other more comprehensive testing done, for consistency, and peer review of the testing methodology, as the resu...

Re: REX maintenance question

I'd run it for 10 - 15 minutes every 3 - 4 months. You might also add a gas stabilizer. I add PRI-G to mine, as that is what the military uses in their fuel storage dumps and in emergency generators to keep fuel fresh where it may sit for years before being used. https://www.amazon.com/Small-Engine-...

Re: Identifying Interior/Exterior Rattles

Unfortunately, you must post your photo on a publicly-accessible Website and refer to it in your post here using the "Img" tag. Hmmm... Probably not worth the effort... If you use the forum a lot, with a Gold level membership - $2.50 US/month (which helps support the forum) you have the ability to ...
