Electric Conversion From Gas To Electric Completed

We have just completed our conversion from gas to electric, two weeks ago the Fiero passed it's safety test with no problems. We had the car licensed and plated the following week. We have had a few road tests, trying to find the actual range per charge. We are averaging about 40-50 km's (24.8-31.7 miles) per charge with a charging cost that has averaged about $0.67 and taking about 3 hours to charge from a standard 115 volt ac plug rated at 15 amps. The top speed averages about 80 km per hour (49.71 miles) The range and speed performance is not bad for used UPS (uninterrupted power supply) batteries from a computer back up system. We hope in the near future to purchase lithium batteries which will most definitely increase the range to about 140 km (87 miles), improve the top speed to about 100 km per hour and have a battery life between 5 and 10 years.

A Whole Battery Of Tests

After doing a whole lot of calculations we decided on 18 Deka 45HR2000S batteries for traction and 1 Deka 45HR2000S for the 12 volt ACC DC Loads.



Below is a battery pack and group design.





After configering the battery group arangements, next will be to complete the removable rear battery shelves and finish installing the transmission back in the car.

By the way here is a picture of a naked Fiero
