Re: What Are Electric Car Owners Paying to Charge Their Cars

Yes, 3K or so to heat, cool, light, cook, supply hot water, circulate the pool, wash and dry the clothes. And, oh yeah - charge the car for 1,000 or so miles a month. Doesn't seem so bad to me, at least I get something for it. Paid > 20 times as much in taxes last year :shock: It's a big house, if ...

Re: Annual Fees to Compensate for Gas Taxes in Some States

This entire thing reads like a page out of the idiots guide to governance and policy. Not that agree with the UK system and don't the US one, but gas here is about $7 a gallon, about 70% of that is tax, pure tax. Thus the more fuel you use the more you pay, all other variables excluded... now I'm n...

Re: Annual Fees to Compensate for Gas Taxes in Some States

Wisconsin was fighting hard to charge EV and Hybrid and alternative fuel owners a $50 a year fee, which fell through. Now they are fighting for a $150 fee plus adding wheel taxes. I argued with some idiots quite hard about how charging the under 10,000 EV owners in the state a special fee did ABSOLU...

Re: Hello iMiev owners

$3800 new and people laugh that $5k for a 5 year old car is too low. Looking further I can get new for around $7500ish, and I do get 95% of the $7500 tax rebate (single, no house, no deductions helps) Ah well, always wished the $7500 could be spread out over multiple years, if I donate too much I en...

Re: WTB $5000 MIEV

I have thought about Bens unit, if he wants another project I would drop off the $250 Miles ZX40 and the volt battery and he could reshell it into his MIEV, he would have to trade dashes, drivetrain (not sure of the MIEV gearing) and make the rest fit. After paying him per hour I could probably buy ...
