After 2 weeks/ 1.356 km. of experience, here are my thoughts about iRemote app:
- On the "statistics" page, I would like to see the number of people in the Community. The data is already available & always updated on background.
- On the same page, the last data on the bottom graph is: "All trips: Distance driven on one charge". On my app, this data doesn't show the real max. distance on one charge. Few days ago I did 109 km at +1 deg.C weather temp. on one charge, but it still shows 80km max...
- Co2 calculator: Here, "the amount of Co2 saved if using conventional energy sources" seems odd to me. Let me give you some numbers:
1- iRemote says, I saved 37,3 kg Co2 by driving 1.356 km. (2,75 kg/100 km.)
2- The average Co2 gr/km for diesel engines is 140 gr/km. (14 kg/100 km.)
3- So, if I had my previous car during the last two weeks, a BMW 525 Xdrive, I would release appx. 189.8 kg of Co2 by burning fuel oil in 1.356 km.
4- My average electric consumption for 1.356 km. is 15.6 kWh/100km, so 211.5 kWh in total.
5- If #1 is true, 189,8 - 37,3 = 152,5 kg. of Co2 has been released for generating 211.5 kWh electrical energy by conventional resources.
6- 211,5 kWh/152,5 kg.Co2/1.356km means 15.6 kWh/11,25 kg.Co2/100km... Isn't that huge ???
Probably, the electrical energy is not as clean as we think, if it's not coming from renewable sources...
