I'm glad you guys were able to get another board up and running! Kinda worried you were going to be stuck on L2 going all the way back home! :o

Yeah wasn't looking forward to that ;-)

I left 3:30am with extended charge, 150 miles range according to the GoM
Image
I drove 55 mph with no heating/fan on. It was 50 degrees when I started but during the trip i've seen 55 but mostly in the upper 40's
The day before I left, found a person on plugshare who shares a 14-50 outlet available for charging of EV's in san clemente.
That was about 75% of my trip so thought that would be a good place to stop for a while
traveled 126 miles in 3 hours, so 42 miles/h average
Image
Had my openevse with me, so set it to 40 amp (I can only charge 24 amps at home)
I charged for 90 minutes, sometimes put the car on to have the heat seating on to warm up a little, 45 there ;-)
Image
The GoM had gone up to 64 and my last leg would be about 55 miles so should cut it close, but I had a deadline to make.
Drove faster that last leg, and after 70 minutes arrived at Tony's place, where I could charge for the way back.
I arrived with my dreaded "Very low battery" warning on and only 9 miles in the batteries and 10 minutes before the deadline ;-)
Image
Total travel time: 5 hours 40 minutes to bridge 182 miles.
average speed including charging: 32 miles/h ;-(

Hooked up my rav and went with tony to the breakfast meeting.
When we came back, the car had about a normal charge (130 miles according to the GoM)
Tony installed the quick charger, made trips to 2 different chargers (one was just occupied and would take 30 minutes so we moved on to the next)
When everything was working and I headed home, I only had 86 miles left.
Drove until traffic got really dense and decided to look for a chademo. I found a good reference for one in Downey, so I headed there. Arrived with 16 miles left, hooked up the Chademo and did a 30 minutes, 50 kW (115 amps) charge.
When I left after 30 minutes, the GoM was up to 86, Waze told me I need about 75 to get home.
Due to the traffic waze gave me a different route home which probably was longer, but less congested.
I knew I would gain efficiency on the last part driving into Ventura county where I live.
Arrived 9:30p, with "low battery" 17 miles left, and a total trip of 395 miles. Not bad for an EV! ;-)
Image
If I would have had to this with L2 charging, I would have needed at least 3 hours of charging to make it home.

Fast charging is such a game changer for a rav4.
I am so happy...

wish we could have made it to SoCal for a meet up - but SoOhio a long cold way away!
I'm impressed you are able to charge to 150 miles....
in the cold,best we can do is get to 75-80, (only had the car since December), and hoping to get a little better when warm out....are there secrets (like finding easter eggs in a program, the tech in these cars has to hold some secrets) ?

we went out and brought a Rav4 home after driving it - first ev a tesla....only hesitation is the range but we love it....


thanks

You are likely referring to the GOM when you think you only have 75-80 miles. It's not the same as the rated range on the Tesla Model S.

I think we had five RAV4 EV's at my house for the after party.


I enjoyed the breakfast, thanks for putting everything together. I had a brief chat with Beth on the walk in, she sure likes her B class. I sat next to FROMPORT and had a nice chat. I'm glad his drive home was faster due to Chademo. Sorry I missed the after party, I would have liked to make it to your place after but unfortunately I had to leave early to be at my daughter's school at 11:30. Chademo looking awesome - getting excited!

I had a great time at the meeting today.

Here my 3rd quick charge report:

Started with my rav normally charged.
Gom said 112 when I left home.
Arrived after 84.1 miles, gom said 42 miles left ( so driven and range left was 126 miles vs 112 initially predicted)
After meeting drove to QC place.

Gom was down to 32 miles left.
Plugged in to CHAdeMO charger.
Image
Charger said I had 16% left in my battery.
Let it charge for 32 minutes, battery was up to 81%, 23.5 kWh added, Gom said range of 120 miles (with fan off, with fan on it dropped to 91 miles)
Image
Arrived home with 180 miles driven today and 27 miles on the Gom to go.

Driving these distances without a QC would have taken at least 4 times longer to charge up.
