  1. Why some electric car owners return to gas – the reasons aren’t surprising

    It is a matter of perception. This dealership is rather large for our town of 12,000 population. The whole statement validates the "long while". The dealership had a single Mach E, did not promote the Mach E, never put it in their prime advertising spot or close to their main thoroughfare...
  2. Why some electric car owners return to gas – the reasons aren’t surprising

    Your observation about the dealerships hits close to home where I live. The local Ford dealership had a Mach E for sale on their lot for quite a while. Until someone where I work bought it for a deep discount. There is a lot of issue to unpack with this purchase. But, there was only ONE BEV...
  3. Paying cybertruck with credit

    Credit limits are personal to the individual. You should know yours already as part of your credit account statements. As for this avenue of credit use, don't. Unsecured credit charges at a higher rate because there is no collateral held against the debt. If you already have the cash...
  4. Hey Elon - let's make a real virtual storage plant from totaled CTs

    Crissa did respond appropriately. Tesla does recycle their products, which is a far sight better than anyone else. As for your vault design, I am not sure the concrete is necessary though. The foot print for the battery will be around 50 square feet given the wheel base and width and probably...
  5. stainless steel laser engraving

    I guess there will be posers in every situation. But, the proof is what happens when you press the accelerator.
  6. Cybertruck Stainless Steel Exterior - Wrap or Polish

    Just what the roadways need, a mirror polished vehicle to reflect the sun, oncoming lights, and attract the unwanted attention of law enforcement. Personally, I'm going to revel in mud baths and let the rain wash the truck clean.
  7. Toyota Developing Hydrogen Internal Combustion Engine

    Has Toyota not heard of Brown's gas?! This is old and backyard technology being presented as an improvement? To what? The P.E.M. fuel cell has a 60% efficiency over the 15 to 20% efficiency of combustion. This is a pathetic waste of time, money, and effort. If they don't start soon they...
  8. Fiery deaths?

    The owner did not buy FSD, the autopilot was not engaged (the cars are fully connected to Tesla), and had the fire department been trained in putting out an E.V. fire they would not have used WATER. They doused the Lithium battery fire with the one thing that makes the lithium metal EXPLODE...
  9. Will the Cybertruck fit in automated Car Washes?

    The last time I washed my truck was the last time it rained.
  10. Cybertruck Models Acceleration Comparison Simulator

    I agree with you completely! I have an old f250 and I have the same capability except only 3 passenger and nothing but a stereo and crap speakers (yes, I love it this way). I regularly drive rural roads and gravel, and the scenario about blind corners and short/no passing lane is real. I read...
  11. This site has affected my thought processes – not necessarily for the better

    funny thing about this. Either will run in a fuel injection system. The combustion will just be inefficient either way and the power will suuuuuuuuck. As for Diesel in a gas engine, there is an "old timer's" trick that uses a gallon of diesel in a full tank of gas as a "top end" lubrication...
  12. Tri-Motor Insurance Cost

    I have been anticipating Tesla insurance. However, they are in California and Washington, but they skipped over Oregon.
  13. Tesla transition to solid state batteries

    I don't see Tesla waiting to do anything. They could have stopped at any time and just made a car that was good enough, batteries that were good enough, safety that was good enough, and left the charging network to someone else. They haven't stopped improving on their own designs yet. In my...
  14. Name your top 5 reasons why you pre-ordered a Cybertruck

    1. Electric/Reduced atmospheric carbon 2. Utility 3. Longevity 4. Simplicity 5. Range, actual and comparative. The Cybertruck will be my daily driver and my grunt truck. It will replace two I.C.E. trucks, a 1988 Dodge Dakota 4x4 sport that I use for out of town material runs, and a 1971 Ford...
  15. Edmunds: Tesla Model Y versus Shelby GT500

    I agree with some of this. Had an actual race car engineer actually designed the Mustang it could have won that race against a model S, maybe. I am an "old" Ford enthusiast, back before the industry stopped being about their version of strength, capability, longevity, and owner repair, and...
  16. GM announces the Chevy Silverado EV: 400 miles of range with Ultium battery techCHEVROLET CONFIRMS THE FIRST-EVER ELECTRIC SILVERADO FULL-SIZE TRUCK

    I am torn!! I want the world to transition to electric across all platforms, including inexpensive forms for those of us without strong cash flows. However, I do not trust the corporate decision makers at Chevy. They have a history of bait and switch. They are huge on announcement and thin...
  17. Edmunds: Tesla Model Y versus Shelby GT500

    I do understand. There are so many industries that rely upon the traditional I.C.E. platform that Tesla keeps embarrassing. Each of these para-industries (my word) stand to lose when Tesla becomes the customer's choice. They keep trying to make the case that I.C.E. is still relevant...
  18. Nanotechnology Repairs Engine Damage in Cars

    Ask Papa Smurf? The man who swears that colloidal silver is safe despite the awesome permanent blue color of his skin.
  19. Nanotechnology Repairs Engine Damage in Cars

    I question any claim that professes to replace the material worn away by friction. I actually understand what is happening inside the cylinders. The friction is from spring steel rings and the physics of liquids (oil). The material is intended to seat/wear into shape against the cylinder wall...
  20. Edmunds: Tesla Model Y versus Shelby GT500

    With an effective price of $95.5K for the 2020 GT500, why are they comparing it to the model Y? The power, the price, and the passenger count should put it against the roadster or the model S. Even the Model X would be a more appropriate comparison.
