More ev posts

For those following my EV, there has been a lack of posts recently.
There are a few reasons.
1. I am happily driving my electric hilux (electro-lux) and have now done over 1100km.
2. I have been catching up on some home maintenance. I just finished a retaining wall.
3. Here is a sneak peek at something I have been working on in my spare time. More details to follow.

I got given this very nice book on motor repair and rewinding.

It includes an extensive chapter on 3 phase AC. The copyright is 1946, and not much has changed since then.
The AC nuts on the AEVA forums might kill for this.

How Much does it cost to charge?

Not much compared to the same period last year (may).

Note the cost per day is total household usage.
