Maybe it’s a Ecoboost F150? Could E85 benefit engine timing?
I grew up in the deep south. Trust me: They will always be angry about something. Angry that liberal exist: somewhere. That and they will always have a nice steady supply of propaganda to continually get their source of anger: Fox news, Limbaugh, Trump, etc....
I never talked about fuel economy so much with other drivers until I got a truck. But it was always about how well their truck does in the context of towing.
You know, I don’t think I could wade through the confederate flags and trump stickers long enough to hold a conversation with that person.
Neutral: No. God no. Of course not. Hell, a lot of the truckosexuals take low fuel economy as a badge of honor. Look at the rolling coal douchebags.
If you’re going to serve ice cream from outside the van, you might as well just push an umbrella-covered-cooler-cart around.
Right, so it has to have batteries AND an engine, gas tank, transmission, driveshaft etc.
Wat? Transportation accounts for 29% of all CO2 emissions in the US. That’s the largest share of greenhouse gas emissions. Not to mention all the other crap that pollutes the air and results in 10's of thousands of premature deaths every year. I love cars, but I’m not letting that love get in the way of reality.
“work out to a 43 percent increase in vehicle miles traveled since 1994 (compared to a 25 percent population increase over that same time).”
Yes, having the choice to not require a personal automobile to go anywhere, having the choice to walk or bicycle to my job or some other destination, having the choice of whether to have a small yard instead of being mandated by zoning to have minimum 45-foot setbacks and no more than 30 percent lot coverage...
Well technically the planet is not at risk. The planet will be fine. Human beings, however, (along with other species) are at risk. The planet could kill us all off an keep on ticking like nothing happened. This is all about saving humans.
You are certainly correct - the planet is not at risk. It will keep spinning around the sun for billions of years at is has all along until the sun swallows it up.
1st: We’ve known for 200 years that if you massively reduce the cost of transportation, development spreads. So shock and awe, we’ve reduced the costs of automotive transportation with high-mileage vehicles and massive freeway spending and expansion, and sure as stink on shit we’re driving way way more now! This is…
I mean you are right, the planet will still be here.
Reduce driving? Allow more telecommuting. My last job was paper pushing. Actually, not paper, pdf pushing. I would get a pdf from a supplier, I would attach a pdf with my review and e-mail it to about 30 people for additional comments. Then I would consolidate all the reviews into a single pdf (including the original…
Oh no! You might have the *option* to buy an electric vehicle! You might have the *option* to produce your own power with solar on your house. You might have cheaper cleaner electricity from your utility!
Or, as per the actual article, there needs to be more alternatives, especially in places like cities where driving is inefficient and annoying.
I would drive the same amount no matter what gas prices are...I have to get to work, run errands, pick up the gf. Luckily I have a Golf with the 1.4 TSi (I average 5.7l/100km on almost every tank) but either way I would not drive less.
