Re: PHEV: Fuel Door Getting Stuck/Not Opening.

Well, last time I tried early in the morning cool weather (about 60 F), reasonably clean car, it opened first try. Maybe it's dust/dirt accumulation?....

Re: EV Charge range

Well, most people drive under different conditions. If they don't "normalize" the conditions, then the range they provide is going to be pretty much meaningless. As extreme examples, one who drives "in town" may get a lot more range vs someone driving strictly 70 mph down the highway. I just read so...

Re: PHEV: Fuel Door Getting Stuck/Not Opening.

Okay, so the intermittent issue is getting worse. It is almost every time I have to fill that the first press fails. I did try the emergency fuel release. First time I pulled it, it also failed to open! I only had to fill once since I "found" the emergency release, but it feels like similar to the r...

Re: Problem charging after long drive?

Sorry to read of your troubles darthpuupy! I guess I'm lucky the power around here seems to be stable. (We did get an outage due to a metallic balloon shorting out the power a while back that forced me to pull out the generator for I think 5 or 6 hours)!... Hopefully not true about scaling back the ...

Re: Problem charging after long drive?

I've actually had it stop charging once in a very long time. It was a long time ago last time, but I still get paranoid if it will stop charging for some reason. This is our setup: The car is set to charge at 10:00pm - 8:00am, our cheapest rate. So if I want to charge anytime out of this time period...

Re: PHEV: Fuel Door Getting Stuck/Not Opening.

My son was taking his backpack out of the trunk and noticed a small panel in the left side. He asked what it was. I immediately realized it was the emergency fuel door release cover. Next time I have trouble I will just pop the trunk and try it! (DUH)!!!

Re: Problem charging after long drive?

If the ambient temperature is hot/high this may heat the EVSE to a point where it stops/faults. There was a recall for Ford "chargers" that failed due to heat at the plug, as an example. Have you checked your battery cooling system coolant level? I found ours slightly on the lower end of the range, ...

Re: PHEV: Fuel Door Getting Stuck/Not Opening.

So I've had issues still for the last few times. If I initially press and hold down the release button for a while, nothing happens, meaning there's no response that it is even trying to open the lid. So the initial press has to be a quick one. It has taken varying amounts of presses before opening ...
