It's pretty cool, but those batteries are hitting 5 years old now, so I'd wonder how much life would be left in them. Also 8-9 hours to go 25-30 miles seems like a lot, although as long as you were able to charge it at work you'd be fine (just don't go anywhere during the day haha).

Most diy electric cars are this way. Mind you, with the soon to be dead batteries, that could be a good build to switch to lithium. Expensive, but lighter and holds a better charge.
