100$$ per Barrel for the First Time 08 - thinking about EV's
 
Can you Believe Gas soured above 100 dollars a barrel

!!!!Happy New Year America!!!!!

That price Got me to thinking about EV's (electric vehicles)

So I started searching the internet and I stumbled on to a couple great site's
I thought that I would share with anyone who has a interest.

The First site is a company based out Palm beach Florida that will convert a good variety of cars mostly upper end cars like Porches and BMW's

What I thought was the cool thing is the do hybrid conversions also not just EV.

http://www.coolgreencar.net/

The second Link is for website that specializes in only selling EV's (kinda like a auto trader for EV'S)

http://www.austinev.org/evtradinpost...ist&clearoff=1

The third Link is not totally dedicated to EV's but its a wonderful site I visit quite often to keep up on various news about issue's and policies for sustainable mobility.

http://www.greencarcongress.com/

Hope everyone enjoys the links more to come, and also I would like to know what everyone thinks of EV's on this site ?

Hey there! Welcome to the site. Some good links I am very familiar with, :)

I love EVs, one day I hope to not need one because I'll be near enough to work to bike, :p

Darin will be your expert though!

Welcome aboard! You've found the right place if you are interested in saving gas through modified driving techniques and eventually do-it-yourself EV conversions.

Hi & welcome.

Good links - I read several of those sites myself.

I think that with the limits of current (affordable) battery technology, they aren't for everyone. But in the right circumstances, they can be ideal.

There are 3 EV's in my family:

1. http://metrompg.com/posts/photos/forkenswift-teaser.jpg Project ForkenSwift - EV conversion


2. http://images.canadiantire.ca/media/...0_CC_63671.jpg e-bike by Schwinn ... or Currie

Thank you all for welcoming me on board SVOboy directed me here from stumble Upon

SVO; It def would be nice to be able to bike or walk to work a dream of mine for a while. as I commute 60 miles each day.

TomO; I have been reading A lot of the do it yourself mods lately and there are some great ones on here and I plan to post some in the future

MetroMPG; Man you are living the dream I wish I could have that many EV's I have been reading the forkenswift article (yes all 12 pages or so) and it is very interesting I have always wanted to know what it would take to make an EV from scratch.

I like the first link I gave because its not your run of the mill EV's maybe they are high in price but come on a porche as an ev thats just awesome and plus the have a diesel hybrid system something I am looking into doing personally in my truck BetsyBio




One last question is there a particular place on the site to write an about me or should i just pick a place that is specific to what i am doing with my truck?

BetsyBio 01-03-2008 01:31 PM

Sorry about that, think you could repost for us? :(

If you want to start a thread about mods you've done/plan to do to your truck, I'd post it in Ecomodding Central.

But if it's a Biodiesel machine (just a guess), perhaps also start a thread on that subject in Fossil Fuel Free .

And lastly, you can create a garage entry so it appears beneath your avatar, like the Blackfly & ForkenSwift do beneath mine. To do that: Add new vehicle.

MetroMPG 01-03-2008 02:34 PM

PS - that's a fine looking vehicle!

BetsyBio 01-03-2008 06:29 PM

Its all good SVO second times a charm with postings pics I knew I should have hit the preview button before posting Doughhh..LOL

Metro: yeah she's definatley going to run on Bio-diesel / Hydrogen / Electric and with a little sunshine thrown in the mix. (So I have Big plans for her) Thanks for the links I am working on my garage entry rite now.

And I look forward to posting some pics in the future as I finish more things

Oh yeah and thanks on the fine looking vehicle comment :)

(Those rims made her pretty but they did not help in the gas mileage category I put them on for shows, I have to put light weight rims on when I am doing any gas mileage testing)
