It's the one that whistles when you first step on the accelerator (I almost said Gas) I like the whistle in reverse but not as much in forward gears.
Batteries10 Optima Yellow Top, 12.00 Volt, Lead-Acid, AGM
This is a brand new set. My old set of Marine SMR 31s had lots of power, but died after only 1,000 miles.
System Voltage120 Volts
120v bulk charger (not used) Ten 12 volt 3 amp automatic chargers, and a set of ten 12 volt 6 amp automatic chargers. I use the 3 amp set 95% of the time. Charging has never been a problem.
Heater12v hair dryer. Burrr!
DC/DC Converter
30 amp
InstrumentationNormal plus an E meter.
Top Speed100 MPH (160 KPH)
I drive in 3rd gear from 0 to about 60mph. Since I drive most of the time around town, it's like having an automatic transmission. On the highway, I have had the car up to 85mph in forth gear before letting up. The car is a five speed. It's crazy to go that fast in a Geo Metro!
AccelerationIt will burn rubber in first gear or reverse. Acceleration is very quick in second gear. In third where I normally drive, off the line to about 15, it's about like a normal 4 cylinder ice. Over 15 it is quicker and pulls hard.
RangeI have had it about 35 miles with no noticeable loss in battery power. I really don't know the maximum range.
Seating CapacityTwo adults in front and two kids (or small people) in the back.
This car is very fun to drive and very reliable. People are amazed when I give them a test drive.
