    HEVs use a battery to run the motor; just what charges the battery is simple hydrogen -- VERY low maintanence and not carrying around heavy expensive batteries. Range 400+ per refuel

    Small problem. no infrastructure.

    For cities with mass transit -- makes perfect sense for buses and airports and seaports for supporting this HEV tech.

    We do have a hydrogen fueling station 1 mile away from us

    Fuel Cell en masse will never come to fruition. I'm sure the technology is awesome and the scientist and engineers who are working on it really believe in it. But it's always be a red herring by ICE companies to show people that they're trending to clean energy. Only now with a disruptor poking in are the ICE companies starting to do BEV's.

    its just being more specific.
    bev, phev, hev......

    That needs some real extrapolations for Cost of ownership on BEVs for SUV and pickup trucks --- wonder the n= on those categories as don't know any real BEV truck anywhere

    this police department saved $6k their first year compared to a Dodge Charger.

    Owning an electric car really does save money, Consumer Reports finds

    Most EVs are $6,000-$10,000 cheaper to operate than an equivalent ICE vehicle

    Found that in the forums, sounds like that was a quote from the manual. Is the 14-50 plug and adapter fully plugged in so it's flush? the plug fully plugged into the car?

    if you're able to pull full amps from the leaf+j1772, you should be able to pull full amps from directly plugging into the 14-50. if it doesn't resolve something possibly may be faulty with the adapter and I'd contact tesla.
    My bad. Wasn't fully flush into the car. Now it's charging at 30 mph. Thanks for the trouble shooting.

The Telsa one (gen 2) can pull 32A, and should with a 14-50 (page 6). It might... dynamically tell how large the breaker is on the circuit (Tesla web page?) ? So, no, at first glance that doesn't add up.

    How big is the breaker on each circuit? Any idea what guage wire you have? Any chance it was just hot out / in the sunshine for w/ the 14-50 test charge?

    Read through the Troubleshooting (page 11) for which type of light/blinking light(s) you may have.
    Thanks. It's cool right now and I'm charging indoors. The circuit breaker for the car charger looks like it has 2 30 amp circuit breakers. Looking at the trouble shooting it says nothing about the amber or yellow blinking lights. I don't know what guage wire it is. Thanks for the info though.
