Spirit of DC - PHEV3A

It's almost like another reality not cruising the Blue Highways with the "Spirit of DC." Anyway, after the Renew America Roadtrip with the Tesla run from New York to California, and after returning to Home Sweet Bisbee, it was time to get into the thinking mode of a three-in-one EVent back with the Electric Vehicle Association of Greater Washington, DC. This will provide some, but not all, of the juice needed to keep the FunRunintheSun going 200 miles per day.

My First Week of Commuting

Open Source Civic EV Kit

When Things Fall Apart

Open Source Civic EV Kit

After the car sat for 20 minutes, I had enough juice to get to the auto parts place. After poking around under the hood, I also found a critical resistor that enabled the DC-DC converter had broken off. Without the DC-DC converter to charge my 12V battery, my car would die quickly with the headlights on at night. I got the car home later this morning, fixed the resistor for the DC-DC converter and tried the charger again.

Toyota Hot and Cold on Plug-in Hybrids

Plugs and Cars

As if to confirm that notion, recently a Toyota spokesman in DC was denigrating plug-in hybrids as Hymotion/A123 and Rob Lowe were making a plug-in splash in Congressman Ed Markey's global warming committee. However, the cars can run only short distances before they run out of juice. A month or so ago word was Toyota was postponing the new generation Lithium Prius. That seemed to be a hint that Toyota wasn't moving too quickly on plug-ins.
