Range and Gadgets

Not a lot new on the conversion, It has been dependable with consistent range. I checked today and 32 AH got me about 44 miles with temperature of 83 F.
I bought a used set of used temperature sensors to replace the set borrowed from my other VX following a failure of one board. I also got a Magic Box in the deal, a canbus add on that gives information on the canbus to the dash display.
I can now read temperatures, amp hours, voltage and current. Much is redundant with cycle analyst, but the restoration of my non working "fuel gauge" is a great plus. I now have the left indicator that shows state of charge at a glance. 
I set it to indicate empty at 20% remaining to keep the batteries healthy and a range cushion.
