First charge

leave a comment »

From 83% SOC (17% DOD) it took 3.5 hours on trickle charge. Given a near linear charge curve, that’s about 20.5 hour total charge time. About 12 minutes trickle charge per mile. My commute of 52 miles round trip would take approximately 10.5 hours charge. Can’t wait for my fast (8 hour) charger.

Last Fill Up

leave a comment »

I got my last fill up Friday night. I’ve never complained about gassing up before. But standing there in the cold, with the smell of gasoline in the air, I’m not going to miss it.
