Had a nice day yesterday,September 13th 2009 . I drove the car in the morning and got the battery temp icon ,no regen , I don't understand ,the battery temp was 79degrees , air temp 64.
Well after getting to work and restarting her it didn't happen again. Christina and I went to lunch before I drove her to work (which never happens),the only thing was that I had to pick her up later.No problem ,plenty of charge. At 8pm I go to get her and the gauge says there is 50% left good for 54miles.As I drive the 15 mile to pick her up the range drops to when I arrive to 32 mile remaining(27% charge). We get in the car to leave and the battery has flat lined,zero charge no miles left to go. Well,we drove home and the car performed as it should and did not leave us on the side of the road even though it said the battery was dead. Anyone experience this phenominon ?

A couple of nice days at the end of Summer (at least for the kids) . Labor Day weekend and I just had to ride the bike. Finally had to put gas in it too, took 4.5 gallons,the most I purchased for my vehicles since getting #249.
I checked on my custom plates at the DMV website . It says that the order has been received ,but they haven't been manufactured yet . One has to wonder ho long that could be.
Hope everyone has a safe and satisfying Labor Day.

I searched around on the net and found where they sell individual chrome letters for $2.75 each,there are different styles to choose from and of course some cost more than others. Personally ,I got eight letters spelling ELECTRIC and stuck them on the back of #249 . They look good and give just the right amount of notification as to what it is. Total with shipping on the letters ,which came ,in a few days from Las Vegas was $32.00. The individual letters had to be arranged on the desk and I took a piece of tape to hold them in position.
Then took a ruler and measured the space on the car ,pealed the backing off and stuck them on. Took all of two minutes.
