Are you a current or recent car shopper who bought an EV and then installed solar – or who had solar already, making the decision to go electric easier?
Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

01 Blazer sputters out downhill, dies if its hot, the more you push gas the harder it sputters-FIXED

Our Chevy would stall while going downhill or in hot weather constantly. The harder you push on gas the more it sputters to death. No codes, no check engine light.
An old rancher who also owned a blazer stopped while I was on the side of highway with hood popped. Explained my symptoms and he said its a Vapor lock immediately.
Fuel hose is touching the engine or comes extremely close and vaporizes fuel before it has a chance to get to engine causing a stall out. We figured we've done everything else why not try it. Got some heat reflecting sleeves and put em on. Its been over a year and zero problems anymore! It even fixed our gas gauge.

I suggest at least trying before changing parts and a million other things. Hope this helps someone!
