I've owned my 2019 i3 REX for 4 days, really love it. But now a question that some or many of you can probably answer. Yes, I read how to hack the gas generator to turn on sooner, but I have decided not to do that until the warranty is up and I bought a certified one so my warranty is up in 4 years. But, my question. I did test the car and I see that the REX turns on at 6.5% charge. So, actually 2 questions.
1). I noticed that the REX generator stays on for sometime after shutting down the car. I did not stay by the car to see if it was for 1 min to 5 mins but I think I came back after 2 mins and it was still running and I came back in over 5 mins and it had stopped. Is the REX generator motor supposed to keep running after a shut down?
2). I own an old classic 1976 455 manual Black and Gold Trans Am, now you know why I now also own an EV as my mpg on the Trans Am is like 9-11mpg. But I do make sure that I use enough gas in the Trans Am so the gas doesn't;t go stale. Does the REX cycle the car into generator mode periodically so I can actually use up the gas and refill before it goes stale?
That's all I've got. Thanks for any replied.
