and also i know it's not an ecological option, but an economical one, but i've recently considered buying a tractor for bigger haulings, and driving something small-engined and lightweight as a get-around.

Like a covered moped/trike/atv or something.

It'd be cheaper (wtf i know right ) to do this if our gov decides to skyrocket the emission and car taxes, g'damit gotta stop having cars as a hobby then, and do sumtin else. Thankfully i can.

The common wisdom is that two wheels in front is more stabile.

Now that I have a diesel hatchback, my Superbeetle can sell on to finance it when Arcimoto ships the SRK with my number on it. They plan a 'Deliverator' model they haven't shown yet.



While I'm looking for a dirt-road marine climate prepper model; they're focused on ride-sharing and 'autonomous'. It will probably demand a Facespook password to even start up.

Getting a tractor wouldn't be a viable option to me so soon, since in my country a commercial driving license is required to operate agricultural and other specialty machinery on public roads. Licensing a motorcycle or a trike in Brazil is actually more expensive, but the lower fuel consumption still makes it worth.
