    Stories when filling up at "gasoline station"

    Last 2 times I’ve bought liquid fossils it was from 1” plus diameter nozzles. They fit fine in both my VW and Sprinter, but not by much. No idea how comma they are, I haven’t been to a gas station since February

    Soundproofing a MKIV - How much of a difference?

    That’s impressive. That’s about what my Tesla is, but it has big noisy tires and leaky door seals.

    slow, dumb, cheap compound setup!

    When you say poop fuel, are you still talking waste oil thinned with gasoline?

    Electric vehicles (EVs), their emissions, and future viability

    I used to feel that way, in fact I thought that BMW I3 REX was ideal, after owning pure EV's for 4 years and about 100K I will say I was wrong, ditch all the complication, weight, maintenance, and wasted space for rarely used ICE and throw some more batteries in if needed/ rent/ an ICEonce or...

    I believe Fiat 500 is going the way of the DoDo this year for USA.

    Electric vehicles (EVs), their emissions, and future viability

    Certainly, but the car will keep going AFTER the occupants, not the other way around certainly an advantage. Statistics have shown a significant drop in vehicle fires in EV's vs ICE cars. I've been present for 5 ICE vehicle fires (one was mine). I'm actually looking forward to seeing an EV fire...

    Glass Headlamp Lens

    Yup, the highest grade stuff that Lowe’s had on the shelf. It smells like some kind of solvent. There’s a spot of black on my Jetta reflector to this day. Super annoying.

    They were polite the entire time, I never felt scared, super super confused though. My mother had a pleasant talk with a social worker and didn’t know I was being talked to until I told her.

    Electric vehicles (EVs), their emissions, and future viability

    EV will keep going underwater, under fire, under no oxygen and other extreme conditions. chance of a vehicle fire is also lower, however if there is a fire you will definitely make the National news.

    Electric vehicles (EVs), their emissions, and future viability

    I do own a few Diesels, which vehicle I chose to run away would depend heavily on a) what the disaster was and b) how much energy was onboard already. Tesla community is unbelievably helpful, it’s basically a brotherhood even more so than TDI club. I’ve had 2 situations that made it abundantly...

    Electric vehicles (EVs), their emissions, and future viability

    I would say that the number of times that my Tesla has been at to low of a state of charge to get away from a fire could be counted on one hand and have all been when supercharger hopping.

    Tesla owning hurricane evacuee here. Very true, but I will say hurricane evacuation typically occurs BEFORE there’s any danger present and my 2000 mile view of fire evacuation is that it occurs while danger is present.

    Electric vehicles (EVs), their emissions, and future viability

    In my opinion the answer will lie in the cost / adoption curve of home solar + storage. From a preppier point of view it would be hard to beat a solar array and a battery. Not ideal car charging setup if you have a smaller system, but can certainly be done. We can also charge from crappy air...

    Telescoping Sun Visor

    I had a set out of a MKV Jetta in my MKIV golf. They don’t fit the indentation in headliner correctly, but work just as well.

    Yeah, Driver fail. Autopilot does not currently recognize construction markers. We will get there, but not yet.

    Electric vehicles (EVs), their emissions, and future viability

    Hello fellow EV+ ALH driver! Just for interest, what’s your electric rate? I’m between $0.06 and $0.07/ kWh (depends on season) in Louisiana. Tesla does 2.8 miles/ KWh or better (Leaf does 4) so $0.25 / mile or $0.017/ mile My 03 Jetta 6mt realistically gets 40 Mpg Diesel seems to be $2.75 /...

    I just had my first EV failure (short of tires) today. I leaned on my Tesla's drivers door handle while deployed, head a crack and now the handle does nothing. Looks like this will fix it https://evtuning.com/products/model-s-door-handle-rebuild-kit-service Otherwise I'll cross 100,000 miles on...

    Modified Thermostat for higher MPG's...

    I sent the head off to YOU in early 2015! I don’t know if you did mill the head, but said it wasn’t significantly warped. You replaced 2 valves, had some comments on head looking like it had high miles (true) sold me a cam and told me to use a machinist straight edge to check block for...
