hey smart ass. I used YOUR values. you said the $9500 versa might cost $3000 to make.

1/3 whats 1/3 of 14,000. yep. keep it up.

people seem to be under a delusion that EV's are expensive.

they are not. they are just over priced or use expensive battery tech.

an EV will always be cheaper in COST than an equivalent gas car. because ITS SIMPLER WITH LESS PARTS. a whole amazingly large magnitude of LESS PARTS.

more of its cost is in "solid state" parts instead of hand made labor intensive parts just like all other SOLID STATE stuff it ONLY gets cheaper unless manipulated.

I have a stick of ram on my desk. 2gig. 2048mb. this stick was worth the "equivalent" of $80,000 just 15 years ago.

my first string of LED christmas lights had 35 led's and cost me $40

I now have strings of 100 warm white led's (more expensive) that goes me $5 just 5 years later.

solid state is always cheaper. almost ALL of the labor intensive parts of a car are thrown away in electric cars and replace by low labor solid state parts.

this is why GM killed it.

Don't get me wrong, I do think you have some very good points....but I think you should start a new thread in the Fossil Free forum ("Electric Cars can be built much cheaper than they are now" or whatever) so this will not be hidden in the "Anyone using magnets to increase milage?" thread.

Cant comment on the rest of this thread, but I just thought to mention, as someone who has been buying panels you can even do better sometimes, like .56 cents a watt, and not Chinese, but North american manufacture so that would be 134.40 for that 240 watt panel.

Guys, please stay calm. The mods drop by the Corral every now and then to tend to the Unicorns. They wouldn't you to upset them.

I wanted a setup like this for my stove just to stir my food.

Have taken another trip to Florida with the 2006 altima. I removed the magnets, by the time I reached Florida the milege had dropped to the base 28 mpg I orginally was getting. I reapplyed the magnets for the trip back and the milage returned to 36 mpg. The A-B-A test may work over a longer period of time and milage.
