Morning everyone,

Just a quick introduction: my Volt is originally from Indiana. I drove to my sister's in Jamestown, NY for the night and then straight to VT. Now that I am using mountain regen on a regular basis due to all of the hills we have, and it is fantastic! My favorite part of the trip was getting 93 Ethanol-Free in Central NY and adding a little seafoam, what a blast!

Regards,
Oliver aka Ollie

Is there a specific reason why your adding anything to the fuel to begin with? Most top tier gasoline already has cleansing and top end lubricants as part of the blend. Any additives shouldn't be necessary.

Please tell me where to post future items like this if this isn't the proper place, so here goes... I found a .1ohm shunt, just grind the rubber off of the emergency disconnect and attach a meter!

OK, I'll figure this out... eventually

My posts are going to be hard-core electronic/electrical/mechanical knowledge only, they are not for everyone. However, if you are interested in designing your own electronic systems I'd like to meet you. I've been a systems engineer for nearly 20 years, and have built/converted 3 electric cars, so I know a little about how things work. I've already found a 1mV shunt "easter egg" from the Volt engineers, cheers! I've only had the car for a couple of weeks and so far it is exactly everything I imagined it was going to be.

Reply #9: I was helped by a nice guy in Central VT the other day. He used to work for the local dealership. Unfortunately we hooked the 12v battery up backwards and blew 7 fuses.
