Welcome to DIY Electric Car Conversions

Welcome to my website, DIY Electric Car Conversions! Here I will provide resources and tutorials for those of you who are interested in learning how to convert your gas car to electric.

I will show you where to find the best electric car conversion kits, as well as review some individual parts and compare brands for those of you who want to piece together your own electric conversion kit.

Why convert my car to electric?

Before converting my car, my tank cost me just over $80 to fill my tank. Keep in mind I live in California where gas prices tend to be a little bit higher, and having a car that requires 91 octane premium gas doesn't help that fact. So at just over $4 a gallon, plus having to commute a 60-mile round-trip to school and back four days a week, plus get me to work and around town whenever I needed something, you can see how quickly the money flows right through my gas-guzzler.

While there are many electric car conversion kits out there, you can get them economically priced started at just a couple hundred dollars. So for the price of 2-3, maybe even 4 gas tanks, you could completely eliminate the cost of gas from your budget. What would you do with all that extra money?

Most of the conversion kits are pretty straight-forward and fairly simple to install, but I still recommend that you have same basic understanding of the mechanics of the automobile just to be safe. Either that or you can have a friend help you out, and perhaps even convince him/her to do the same!

I hope you learn a lot from this website, and if you eventually decide to convert your car after researching all that goes into it, please come back and share with me and my other readers your experience!
