Hyper-miler Wayne Gerdes targeting record with Kia Optima Hybrid

Green Car Congress

Hyper-miler Wayne Gerdes and his colleague Chris Bernius, driving a factory-standard 2011 Kia Optima Hybrid ( earlier post ), aim to set a new record for lowest fuel consumption in a gasoline hybrid car while driving an 8,000-mile route through all 48 adjoining states of the US. The Optima Hybrid is Kia’s first hybrid vehicle in the US market and went on sale in East- and West-coast regions in June 2011, priced from US$26,500, with national availability by the end of 2011.

The Plan for the Waiheke EV

DIY Electric Car

I bought Gavin Shoebridge's EV Secret's book, Kia Ora mate! This blog also exists at [link]. [link]. and am starting down the path. The first thing the ebook I bought said to do was plan. I don't have a donor vehicle yet, I am going to trawl trade me to see what I can find, and what I like, after I work out what my modifications will weigh! So the requirements for my Waiheke EV. Power. The highest speed limit on the island is 70km/h, and that's only on one 3km stretch of road.
