Thus far

A project log for All-Electric Honda Insight

Get rid of the gas engine on a 55mpg hyper-efficient hybrid vehicle? Sure, sounds like a project.

I've been working on this since spring 2020. 

-So far I have gotten the motor spinning. 

-Written 127 emails and visited the internet of old Solectria groups to track down appropriate .ccs and .par files.

-Then overcome a problem where there was no power and car "stalled" (I disabled the charge error in the DMOC 445)

-Designed and printed a little custom throttle and zip tied it to my pedal

-Strapped batteries in the trunk

-Bled the brakes

-Drove up and down a driveway
