Re: Ontario EVCO

I've come to a conclusion. It is because Ontario "planners" are: A) Dumber than a bag of hammers and / or B) Greedy as F###. And to answer your rehetorical question, you wouldn't. You'd take the minivan and have zero range anxiety, more comfort, and more route options. I'm an EV enthusiast...

Re: Crazy car pileup in Montreal. Bus Police and Snowplow!

And this is what happens when governments neglect to properly sand and salt roads, and studded tires aren't used in one of the worst weather countries on the planet.

Rocket science, it is. Oh, Canada.
At least Quebec had the sense to mandate winter tire use, unlike Ontario.

Re: Electric cars lack recharging stations

Seeing that abandoned L3 sitting in a pile of garbage pains my heart! Can you ship it to my address in Toronto please, and I'll have it installed somewhere?

We have around 6 million people in the area I live, and maybe 6 or so L3 chargers, mostly in not so great locations.
Ugh!

Re: Ontario EVCO

Awesome!

Both excellent locations along the qew.
Niagara trips will be far less tense with this L3 in place :)

Re: Ontario EVCO

Haha, yeah I noticed that too, but I tried not to think about it ;) What a gong show. This isn't complicated and it has been done elsewhere (installing L3 chargers). How is it that BC and Quebec, both smaller provinces in terms of population and economics, have been able to LAP us on this? What is i...

Re: Just Joined - Here's My EV Story

Hey Jeju,

Is that your SOH report? (96%~)?
If so, how many KM are you up to?

Re: Ontario EVCO

Yeah no kidding. Why the heck did the province give the money all up front. Things don't usually work that way. Think of bank construction loans, released as a project progresses.. To stop that very sort of thing from happening. Disturbing that taxpayer money was handled in such a loose manner. I'm ...

Re: 15 inch or 16 inch winter tires?

I'm running cheap 16" steel rims, and did NOT have TPMS sensors installed. Used them all last winter without issue. Just a little more rolling resistance from the aggressive tread and softer rubber. Not having TPMS sensors just means your warning light will be on till spring and you put your al...

Re: Charging Fault error.

Haha, thanks. Hmm.. Richmond Hill huh? That's where I picked mine up. Funny, I received the same oil change phone call. Sigh. So note to self, maybe don't go there if the Kia ever decides to act up. Knock on wood, nothing so far. On a positive note, I looked up our warranty on the kia Canada website...

Re: Charging Fault error.

No, not experiencing the issue thankfully and after around 17,000 km, hoping I've gotten one of the lucky OBC units. I figured you must have been GTA like me when you described how far the nearest L3 charger is.. Effing sad that we still have pretty much nothing to show for the EVCO program $20 mill...
