Gas burns, but 288v will kill anyone.

I often drive a hundred miles a day in my HX and today I am driving 165 miles to help out Mom, with another 165 on Monday, my normal work route, and while I am up there, all errands will be much further apart.

The only time I ever go in the convenience store is if I am out of water or need to take my chances in their bathroom.

Fifteen minute charges only work for Teslas and we are not discussing those, because they are the only ones with ranges comparable to ICE cars.

I EoC regularly. My Civic is not very loud. With the engine off I do not think "Gee! This is so much better!"

I honestly do not notice over my Classical music, which I obviously do not play very loudly.

Who plays Classical loudly?

I am pretty sure that my sixteen year-old car drives just as far as it did when new. How far will electric cars go after 208,000 miles without replacing major components?
