I finally figured it out!! I live in Cushing, Oklahoma: the "Pipeline Crossroads of the World"! It's Big Oil!!! They're the ones behind this! Big Oil is trying to stop me from continuing my electric vehicle projects. Big Oil stole my batteries!!

On another note, I went to an all day teacher's meeting today, and one of the speakers was an investigator for a local PD. He showed a video of how easy it is to create methamphetamine. During one part, the lab person was opening a lithium battery and plopped the contents into the mix! Apparently they use lithium as part of the process. I never knew that.

Gives a new meaning to the phrase "computer junkie".

Who stole your battery? Isn't he captured yet?

My local Napa Auto Parts had a bunch of group 31's today in their core pile. I went over with my voltmeter and traded two of my dead ones for one that read 12.64v and one that read 12.59v! So I have a full 72v pack for the Corolla with one spare.....
