This car was originally converted in 1999 by Arve Paulsen , Stord , Norway. The Car have been in daily use from 1999 to 2005 by two different owners. I bought the car aug2007, and is about to restore the car and drive it to work.

Former owners claiming 2,5 yrs before changing batteries. But extensive rubber burning ate the batteries faster..

I'm about to install battery balancers from powerdesigners.com and hoping to improve batterylife.

UPDATE:
Installed battery balancers, and started testing driving to my job.
