Re: EVgo infrastructure thread

It requires a combination of good weather conditions and economic driving to drop temp bars while driving at highway speeds.

Generally, you need to be above 4 miles/kWh in efficiency, and have a temp differential between pack and ambient of over 40-50F. If it's 55F outside, you can cool your pack from 120F to ~100F during a 90%-20% drive. That might drop 1 bar on your dash.

I am doing another Kansas run soon, with fingers crossed on optimized driving with 3 DC stops, so will see what I can manage.

Re: EVgo infrastructure thread

Looks like it's beginning with other providers.

https://www.plugshare.com/location/457454 has 4 CCS plugs and 2 CHAdeMO across 3 stations. At least the 2 CHAdeMO are on different stations. Oddly, they only have 1 CHAdeMO to Tesla adapter there, not 2.

Re: EVgo infrastructure thread

EVgo app is giving me an "unknown error" when I try to logi in

I can log into the web. I have a RFID card. But the app doesn't work.

Tried un install and re install. Didn't help.

Most everything around here is wet during the rainy season. And the rainy season is long.

Does this one really have the 100 kW ChaDeMo? Never seen it on EVgo before, good for them!

Solved.

I needed to put my cell number in, using the web interface. Once done, then got a different message which sent me a text, and enabled the app to work.

I signed up so long ago my cell number wasn't asked for.

I can confirm the two DC FCs are physically gone. Unless you knew what it looked like before, you'd hardly knew they were there before.

One spot where I believe one DC FC was has discolored (different colored) concrete vs before. There's now no public charging at all that I could see at that Walmart.
