Ambushed by 'Tonto'
I've been enjoying the motorcycle so much I decided to sell 'Edna' the Hyundai. As with most used EVs for sale she will be due for a new battery pack in the coming months. Now the buyer, a silver tongued devil, whom I shall refer to as 'Tonto' has slicked talked me into the exact chore that contributed to my decision to part with her in the first place. The dreaded battery pack change-out ;-(. But alas we will step up the voltage from 112V to 120V, carpet the spare tire boot, hook up the S.O.C. meter and various other jots & tittles I should have done in the first place. The 'pie-in-the-sky' Lithiums have come down but not yet to $$ most of us can accept. Anyway I am enjoying the prospect of working on her again!
