RE: One Great Big EV Thread

Revisit history News reporting of the hydrogen air ships of Germany. The public was obsessed with "low energy cost" airship transportation until a major conflagration in New Jersey.

RE: Coffee Survey

This is what I go by. Low TDS reverse osmosis water only. Tap water will turn good coffee into swill. Whole bean coffee ground daily is a pain but only you can decide if it's worth the bother. Go to Starbucks. Wait read me out. Try various grinds watered down 50% with hot water. It tastes like ordinary strength coffee. Medium blend or French Roast. One of the other will suit you better The finer coffee is ground the stronger and possibly more bitter it becomes. Trial and error time. Cream or sugar reduces subtle differences in tastes and aromas. Exotic blends like Kona, Rwanda, Japanese, Sumatran, Jamaican Blue Mountain are like estate grown Darjeeling tea. For purists. Yes there are differences are yes you will pay through the snot box for them. One of the more memorable brews I had was when I prepared cowboy coffee on a horseback fishing trip using Lake water Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee. If you can't seem to get coffee intensity just right without going from limpid to abusive with a coffeemaker, try using a five star rated coffee press. Don't be afraid to vary fineness of grind and amount of coffee. Am I a coffee nut? I buy green beans from FINCA ALFREDO GUTIERREZ in the mountains of Chiapas, have it shipped in hundred pound lots via bus. Roast it in a wood fired oven till I hear the second crack then place the whole beans on the patio for a minimum of three days. Everyone has gone wild over it. But then again I am retired and feel entitled to such extravagances.

RE: Battery Indicator Lights

The driver D to A integrated circuit goes bad. You would have to Trace down the part number and hot air change it. There are very few western hemisphere suppliers to purchase specialty ICs.

RE: suggestions for screen door with dog

Screen strips if access is desired. The strips overlap each other.

RE: 6 v GC batteries versus 12 v lithium deep cycle batteries

I think outside influences have grated on people's nerves. Families jammed indoors has got to rub things tender. It's easier down here where things are a different reality.

RE: 6 v GC batteries versus 12 v lithium deep cycle batteries

Some day the Taiwanese company MEANWELL will bring out A to D management of individual cells with corresponding I ratings for amperage. Silicon Carbide MISFETS now can easily handle hundreds of amperes of current. I won't be around to see whether or not millions of acres of solar panels are going to address daytime only battery recharging. Take a look at 50 Kw prime power generator sets to see the significance of perspective for recharging. It takes a 6 cylinder turbocharged big rig diesel engine to drive a single generator at 1,200 RPM. Better yet, divide the Megawatt total of Boulder dam into 50Kw segments. Then do line transmission math workouts. It's going to be a multi-trillion dollars project for California alone to upgrade.

RE: Electricty and RFI ib body

Due to taking Rx NSAIDS for forty years I have multiple frequency tinnitus. The only true "relief" I have found is white noise generated electronically. On U Tube Hare Krishnas have several different constant frequency tones lasting for hours and hours. Trying to mask noises is better than sitting on one's thumbs. Pressure via the estacian tubes from my CPAP aggravates the problem. Constant tone, white noise, waterfall, rain patter makes for an interesting assortment of trials. Good luck it's not an easy problem to resolve.

Sorta like comparing a Ford Focus versus a Rolls Royce Phantom.

RE: One Great Big EV Thread

Jeezo you guys get to remove masks. I'd be dancing in circles after a year. Went to the store down here. First time no temp checks to enter. Zero info about electric down here. What's the deal with using the whole battery costing extra money? Isn't that like carrying around dead batteries?

Electric Transportation? What are you paying per kWh?

RE: One Great Big EV Thread

Simpler than that Don, Shouldn't live within a hundred thousand ton carbon home and possessions and preach about sanctimonious purity and innocence. I don't preach. But I do yowl about hypocrisy. And the yowling is not directed against the silent majority of consumerism. Only the overly loud converts. Hee hee hee.

I can't help it. Some of these conversations make me think of having a chapel in a house of ill repute.

RE: Lithium battery charging in FW of truck

Go to your new vehicle dealer Seek Technical Service Bulletins regarding the factory interfacing of the alternators versus the ECU computer. You want to avoid accidental coding of charging system errors due to auxiliary battery charging errors.

RE: One Great Big EV Thread

Nothing is as ignorant as a reporter with a telephone and a news deadline. China has a smaller per person carbon emissions. 80% of the popular is not urban. But as total CO2, Carbon atmospheric acidification is concerned their emissions are between 8x10 times the USA. Did you miss the images taken from the space station during the height of the COVID19 lockdown. Manufacturing cities es p.o specially in Manchuria issue critical smog days in which city respiratory deaths increase 700%. China's planned society demands a certain percentage of its population intensely cultivate rice, vegetables, poultry, farmed fish, and cattle. The New China News Agency started censoring public images of critical Smogged cities in 2016. Visitors to these cities are limited because of shortages of tourism attraction and moved out if smog levels become stage 1 or higher. Some US environmentalists are like children playing wilderness in the big city. They close their eyes, and pretend Brasil is not burning the Amazon rain forest to the ground. I pointed out specifics in Mexico. All industrial high consumption nations have to contribute to world effort.

RE: One Great Big EV Thread

Speak for yourself :) Monthly energy 77 kWh LPG consumption 8 gallons Automobile fuel 4 gallons Yeah yeah :) I am the epitome of misers. But fuel is $4.08 gallon. LPG 2.42 Gallon and power tiers up rapidly. It allows me to be sanctimonious :)

RE: Lithium battery charging in FW of truck

Just for reference the 4890 Leece-Neville Alternator is about the physically smallest unit that would put out massive amps reliably for extended periods under hood. And it's a moose. The only way I would task a high amperage ND alternator would be if it had an external rectifier bridge. It would be a money in the bank burnout otherwise. It takes x number of c2x to heatsink rectifiers and the NDs aren't even close.

RE: Honda EU2000i at high altitude

Having serviced everything from Honda 600s to Wisconsin V4 37.5 horsepower prime movers at altitudes to 11,200 ft. (Saddlebag Lake) my opinion about the necessity of reducing jet orifices is not glowing. I had difficulty in discerning any difference in power. No reduction in exhaust smoke. But I did re-set to reduce oil contamination and improve spark plug life. Using a "scale" of total improvements with prime movers with adjustable initial timing, the aggregate total of timing and jets was estimated to be 97% timing and 3% re-jetting. On a high altitude only service pickup I fitted 12.5 to 1 compression pistons and that modification amounted to at best only a modest increase in power. By far turbocharging with a waste gate or supercharging made significant power gains. As a side note I successfully was able to use regular gasoline in the service truck. I wish you the best of luck
