Thing probably takes a 1/8th of a tank just to get into third gear haha. Fun little cars tho.
I would assume they have a relatively small turbo engine, no?

it's amazing how in 1.5 years we went from being independent of foreign oil and actually exporting oil, to now the Russians are causing our high gasoline prices.


FJB

Look up the CEOs of national truck stops making statements that fuel shipments are being restricted by the US gov not what we are being told. Like everything else.

Ok bud … you be drinking California water eh?

Good luck my brotha


The guys and idiots that believe in all this bullshit on electric vehicles are so fucken stupid!!!

I am an electrical engineering national director. I have bought over $ 45 million in electrical vehicles in the last 10 years.

There is nothing in the electrical grid to support all this charging. There is all ready power grid collapses in the US creating shut downs.

There is no recycling networks to handle battery recycling or disposal on the scale of our “ so called ass hole leaders. Or no one will want to pay for disposal / recycling / buy new batteries at thousands dollars each. We pay $ 8,000 for 1 new vehicle battery.

They will get dumped all over and poison the ground water, making people sick. The mining for lithium components is horrible on the environment , worse than oil.

Google “Europe electric car dumps “ and just view the shit laying everywhere.

VW launched a electric battery campaign to try
And help the elec car sales . They say they can only process 3,000 car batteries A Year !!!!!! As a corporate car player !!!!!

This has all been done because of insider gov stock trading. They all have stock in the electric vehicle business and utility business.

We have people starting business that pull around a diesel generator with a diesel truck to charge electric cars that are dead on the road. Google it !!

Elec vehicles catch on fire. We had several. They do not do well in a hot environment. The batteries also explode when they over heat. Why do you think you can’t have lithium ion batteries in your checked bags in a airplane. They explode and start a fire.

Any of you tree huggers want details and articles to show this, I have been living it for years.

I’ll just leave this here.

That is what I’m saying…

You’ll have to rebuild the entire grid and residential for home charging. 120 service on a 12 hour charge will get you like 40 miles.

Not too mention emergency vehicles…

These people don’t think at all honestly.

I agree mostly.

Electric cars are being pushed not by free marker place but legislation and trust me this is going to be a train wreck.

If California only allows purchase of electric cars by 2035 do you know fucked they are?

The grid cannot handle the electricity they need now. There is a eight station charging Tesla charging station a couple blocks from me. It requires a 750kva substation to provide enough power.

That is a fuck ton of electricity just for eight cars. Wait until you have a couple million.

And I haven't mentioned the shutdown of the nuke plants in California which has removed nearly 30% of power generation just in the last eight years.

Good luck with that!

5.79 today at Costco. 141.00 gas light wasn't on. How the hell are people doing this? Food? Gas? Housing? Shit even ring is rising their prices.
I'm trying to understand seeing all these people spending money like nothing has happened.

What EV do they want us to buy? I'm not buying a 70k tesla that looks like a bug. The S is 130k and I'm sure the hell not paying that.
So what other EVs are available right now? None! You can't find any others as they're sold out because of the chip shortage. Theres no winning with this admin. Fuck this clown.

Yup, I looked into this a few years back because my wife was looking at Tesla's. A electrical service upgrade on my home and 240 power run to the garage was 3K. They have to replace the entire breaker panel and add more amperage.

Oh and guess where our electricity comes from? Coal...

$5.79 in CA this morning at the cheapest place. I would never buy an electric car. We have PG & E for our electricity in my area and holy shit they are the biggest scam artist. They are charging over 0.40 a KWH which is insane. I know people in the midwest paying 0.04 a KWH….. 10x more in CA, yeah an electric car will save you gas money, uh no, not a chance. Electricity prices are through the roof so PGE could pay for all the fires and deaths they’ve caused.

I spent $110 today in my X5. The SUV is 15 years old I love it but my God, I'm getting killed

I am getting angrier and angrier by the day. Between gas and food we are getting butchered as middle class and this is 100% Biden admins fault.

I also blame every single voter. I notice they are silent or lying and saying he is doing a good job or that it's ok to pay extra money. Or it's Putins fault. Fucking clowns.


I have a RAM diesel and until today diesel has been in the 5.09-5.29 range ...Today diesel was in the mid 4’s all over town, very strange
