Just went back through the thread to see where it looked like I’m promoting EV’s. I don’t see it. Totally just promoting people not being stupid about buying them.

 My Excursion is about to hit 600K, drive it almost daily. I can still fill it up here, and stop once for a 10 minute fuel in Montana, before arriving at my destination in Wyoming!
 When I can do that in a EV, I’ll consider it. Until then…no way in hell! :twocents:

I have an extra 60 gallon tank in the bed of my truck. Takes me 10 minutes to fill it up. Then I have an 1,800 mile range. When electric can do everything my diesel truck can do and give me that kind of range. I still won't buy it!

600K is impressive no matter what brand.  :tup:

There always a choice when the collective masses won't comply.

Wait until inslee figures out fueling time is a major factor in deciding against ev. He'll put micropumps at gas stations to make fueling up equal to recharging. It will be like a pin sized stream taking 3 hours to fill a tank.

He has precedence, during both of the “gas shortages” in the 70’s, they limited fill ups to only 10 gallons.  :bash:

Multiple EV’s in police and city municipality service around me at work.
Google “Tesla police car”.  Multiple agencies have gone to complete EV’s and there are companies converting them into police vehicles.

Statements like "The standards would mark a massive increase in EV sales" should say "force" a massive increase. I don't see things turning out good for the auto industry if they keep forcing them into this EV agenda. Or for people who can't afford a new EV.  :dunno:
