So the new commute to College Park is a brutal upgrade of at least 60 miles round trip from formerly 26. Yeech. Also we are talking later arrivals at home with less juice - yuck.
So as I am a basement apartment dweller I opted to upgrade Nissan's trickle charger. This upgrade with various support thick gauge (12x25') extension cords and various adaptors was about $500. It lets me charge at 240 16amp without buying a permanent station to leave at my apartment.
It does let me charge in 6 hours if empty, 4 hrs for 33% juice left, or an hour gets me a quick 15 miles more or so in the battery - enough to trip south for errands and aikido class in Waldorf.
So far so good - it plugs into my dryer and appears to be working well.
Will report on the new commute as it drives me batty.
Still a typical month going from 20 x 26 = 520 + 400 miles on incidentals = 920
Now is 20 x 60 = 1200 + 400 = 1600 or 680 more or 22 gals
That would have been an additional eighty bucks a month! Closer to $18 with electric.
