Brand new distance record. I had an round trip to do of 49,1km. After 48,7km i ran out of battery. Not bad for an maximum electric range of 50km. I drove in the dark with lights on and winter tires.

I aim planning on installing water methanol injection on the turbo diesel for increased preformance. And in a year or so i let it remap for more preformance.

It is an 5 cilinder in line. And is an 2400cc engine with a twin turbo. Any idea's on what size nozzle wil be good?

Right now in summer i aim so close to get to work and back home on 1 single charge without a drip of diesel. But it just is to far to do it.

The solution?
EV pusher trailer
or
Battery pack in the trunk for in the field (at work) recharging the car.

Probably the electric pusher trailer could be more versatile, and save you the time you would otherwise need for the in-the-field recharging. If you could make an aerodynamically-enhanced single-wheel trailer with a hub-motor, and compact enough to eventually store it on board while not in use, that would be interesting to say the least.

Sooooooo close

Today i managde to drive 53 full electric kilometers (with max range of 50 says Volvo) of the 54,6km i needed to do.


The conditions where perfect.
Right temperatures, no trafic, so i could drive a lot slower then posted speed limits.

The first step i will make is an dc booster that will push the 12V system the car has.

The car has en dc to dc converter that runs from the 400V hybrid battery and charges the 12V battery. Voltage is depending on conditions. Somethimes it is not charging (12,3 to 12,5V), somethimes it is charging with low voltage (13 to 13,3V) and somethimes it is charging at boost (14,5 to 15V).

If i activate the dc converter from my own 12 or 24V system before i activate the car, the chance is that de converter from the car thinks that the battery is under good conditions and won't try to charge the 12V system of the car. I hope so to save 0,5kWh from the battery (is 1/16the equals to 3km of range) That should help to get me in summer to go full electric.

In 4 months i move to my finally almost myself renovated home. What is 1,1km closerby to work, what leads to an before 54,6km round trip that is shorter and will be 52,4km.

A lot better to get round full electric
