Re: Illinois Insanity

What's sad to me is the 'diversion' caused by the $1000 number - instead of debating the whole concept of such a tax, it has everyone focused on the $ amount and thus the concept has been accepted by default. I wouldn't be surprised if it'll get negotiated to some lower number, but the tax will rem...

Re: for sale 2012 Miev Chicago area

I'd ask why the sales turned down, but I'm even more puzzled that the registrations stopped tracking the sales. People buying out of state? If in 2011 I buy a used EV And in 2012 my buddy buys a new PHEV And in 2013 another guy buys a used EV We don’t sell our cars in 2014, and we are the only ones...

Re: for sale 2012 Miev Chicago area

If you have a carmax nearby drive over and see what they offer. In the Midwest it’s nearly impossible to sell anything but a true beater locally. Then you have this to your north https://attachments.priuschat.com/attachment-files/2019/03/163166_936CE107-CF60-42CD-845F-4D486B86C355.jpeg Good Luck

Re: Riversimple and Fuel Cell Discussions

As an update on the conversion of methane to hydrogen I read this rather interesting piece: https://www.techexplorist.com/four-stroke-engine-cycle-produces-hydrogen-methane-captures-carbon-dioxide/4911/ This could probably work in a home off of a gas network. Sounds like a syngas rig without wood. ...

Re: Admin: Spam Concerns

I’ve often though all posts with links in them made by someone with less than 50 posts should be ghosted until a moderator approves.

This is how other sites deal with it then the spammer thinks his posts are there but in reality only he sees them

Re: Need a longer range ev

Even though I agree that for this use-case (lovely chalet, BTW) a Volt would certainly be suitable and a most cost-effective selection, I can't let this comment pass Agree, would take a wee bit of planning. :oops: :geek: PS I also loved my Gen1 Insight. I would have posted a supercharger map of my ...

Re: Need a longer range ev

The i-MIEV has become our primary car, 99% of the driving we do is within its range and I use our van for those rare long trips. My wife hates stopping to charge for a long time so I'm not sure if a long range EV is in our future based on what's on the market now. The upcoming Model Y seems to be t...
