I drove the S2K to work all last week and things are looking pretty good. I'm using 100Ah to get from home to work and 65Ah to get back home. This gives a pretty idea of what a 2,000 ft elevation climb will do to your range. Since my weakest cell is still delivering nearly 140Ah, I should be in good shape for quite some time.
The weather is going to start heating up. Later this week I have plans to meet up with my uncle and get some machine work done. Afterwards, I can rebuild the brackets to mount the compressor and I should have a comfortable commute home in the afternoon. I'll post some pictures of the AC system when completed.
