FWIW synthetic fuel boosters like Porsche claim e-fuel’s total carbon emissions are roughly equivalent to BEVs once the entire production/consumption lifespan is factored in.

I’ve got what I think was pretty good insurance. They offered me about $3,600, less my $500 deductible. By all accounts this seems like a fair valuation given the milage, even though comparable vehicles with similar milage are going for about twice that. But they told me that’s not really how valuation is Read more

I don’t mind the car actually. I don’t like the wrap and I don’t like the price.  But checking Cars.com, the price is actually good for this vehicle (assuming what is under the wrap is good).   But still $10k for a 18 year old Ford seems rich to me.  I would rather spend $10k on Ford Convertible, I can get a 10+ year Read more

WHY do people do shit like this? Without the wrap and the other stupid crap, it might be worth the asking price. This way? Nope. Read more

Pickup trucks are being used as everyday transportation so they should meet the exact same standards for fuel efficiency as other passenger vehicles. The government has created incentives for this arms race by having easier regulations for “light trucks”. Fix the incentives and maybe things will come back into balance.

Exactly. Most people in the USA just buy stuff because they want it, and that’s the hallmark of an overprivileged society.

Yeah, I worked at a shop where we stripped cop cars and FBI cars for sale after their duty was done.  We also stripped and cleaned seized cars to become DARE cars.  You can’t have police insignia or funtioning police equipment in a driven car.  It’s a federal crime, and a felony at that.

Nope, its illegal to have the logo and words on the doors, or light bar.. Especially in California. Ever notice police cruisers always strip these things at auctions?

And these were not always long trips, like “we drove 3 hours to visit relatives”. I mean cars in the 60s tended to “run hot” in traffic when having to idle for extended periods, which is why cops back then never just sat and idled while on patrol, if they stopped they were off, same for taxis.
