UPDATE: August 6, 2007

Again, this weekend was a "Honey-Do" day, so not much car work got accomplished, except for short battery break-in drives.

Today, I took a couple of drives: One was 17 miles and the other was 10 miles. Upon recharging, after the 17 mile run, I put in 5.5 Kilowatt hours (Kwh) of power. At 5-cents per Kwh, that figured out to be about 27-CENTS of electricity. A typical car, getting 22 mpg, would burn .77 gallons of gas. At $2.95/gal., that would be a cost of $2.29. Not too bad!

Also today, I did a little electrical revision (rearranged a couple of batteries for a better connection path) and also, with Jacquie's help, applied the yellow "ELECTRIC" signs on the doors. It looks pretty sharp. Maybe tomorrow, I'll post a good photo.
