    Check your tire pressure. Get them up to about 40 for warm weather and a bit less in winter. Maybe part of the 33mpg was due to lower tire pressure. Also, your keyboard is dumping out heaping...

    A 30A L2 should be enough for any BEV living, which is 6.6 KW charging, 20 miles per charge hour. That means an electrician needs to plan for at least NEC code support for sustained 6600W watt draw...

    Got a 50 and 48.8 day the last couple days. For a 2011 - pretty good. Both days...
