Re: Leafs in Utah

Does anybody there live near (or within easy driving distance of) Park City or Midway?

The newest (2012) Dream Home is located on riverfront (Provo River?) property near Midway (see www.HGTV.com ).

If you can find it, I would like to know exactly where it is located, so I can Google Earth the lot.

Thanks, Gary

Leaf owners in SLC, are there really only 3 of us? We're in east mill creek, if you are interested,
I'd love to get a photo of us together w our new EVs. It won't ever be easier, we won't ever be fewer.

I am curious, SLC Leaf owners, do you think the car would make it to Park City and back on 100% charge? Or for that matter, from PC to SLC and back?

What is the elevation change between PC and SLC.
I think Midway City (south of PC) is at 5900 feet.

SLC ~4200
PC ~6900

So net 2700 feet... but it's a fast climb up I-80, 65mph+. Plus there is a pass (Parley's Summit?) along the way that appears to be somewhat higher altitude, then down several hundred feet, then gradually back up.

I have been to the top of Parleys summit and over the other side. I got off the freeway at Jeremy Ranch ( bottom of hill far side) and then came back to SLC. It made it OK but I did not have a lot left in the pack on the second summit.

All the way to Park CIty and back on a single charge might be pushing the limits. I might try it when the weather gets warmer but not now. It was 18 here this morning.

By "second summit" I assume you mean Parley's summit on the return trip, just up the hill from Jeremy Ranch. I'd think if you made it back to there you'd be home free... how much did you regain on the downgrade back to SLC? Did you actually light up any additional bars?

Yes parleys summit was my second summit and it was also the lowest mark on the GOM. Sorry I do not recall the exact reading.

I should also mention that I was not doing an economy run up the hill. I was doing 65 to 70 on the uphill side and it was great fun to pass so many gas guzzlers on a steep hill.

On the downhill side I put it into ECO mode to max out regen and it did gain bars, but again I did not record how many. Next sunny day I will do it again and keep better records. The main thing was that the car did make it on a single charge and it was a lot of fun doing it. :)

I can't believe I missed the get together. I have been busy lately and haven't been on the board much. Would love to get together sometime.

I went with the EVSE upgrade and love it! I considered the Watt Station but it was not out when I was looking last summer.

I have been to Park City up Provo Canyon. Going up drained the battery a lot. Coming down I used very little. It was last summer. Not sure I would do it in cold conditions as I didn't have much left.
