      I would kill the grass, dig it and the dirt out (hopefully you have a shop vac), fill the cracks (sold in bottle or loose fill if cracks are big enough) and reseal it. As said above it won't be...

      With getting the extra $3k from the state and charging most of the time for free it looks like you have a pretty good deal going. Then the Enterprise within walking distance makes things simpler.
    3. We've gone through this before. Buys hybrid,...

      We've gone through this before. Buys hybrid, only talks about the gasoline cost. I guess if you are finding a way for someone else to pay for the electricity great.

      What ICE to Electric should we compare? Assume Leaf to Fit is fair? Maybe Civic to Leaf?

      Also, if the subsidies are removed for oil (gasoline) production it will also hit the same subsidies in...

      X2, this type of vehicle and ones like it are selling really well right now. Then if you can afford one of them new I don't see an extra couple of thousand each year for gas being that big of a deal.

      Interested in reading the study. Even if true, not not sure how you determined it can work for most people.

      Reality is the base problem is there really isn't a good financial reason to bother...
    7. Large part of the U.S. is a single car household,...

      Large part of the U.S. is a single car household, either single parent, single individual, or even two adults but one car. Unless the electric is either less hassle to deal with or much less...

      Requirements allow big vehicles to get lower mpg than small vehicles so reality is the car company can build a large car with mediocre mpg or a small car with good mpg and both can meet CAFE...

      They built the stations, gave it a try and gave up on it. It is dead.
    10. I said I would like to know what it costs and how...

      I said I would like to know what it costs and how long it will go on before I am for it. We could buy every house in the U.S. a solar panel using tax money, is this a good or better idea than...
    11. Americans have spoken: Now 54.5 mpg CAFE target is off the table

      Imagine that, cheap gas makes it difficult to cut consumption. All the talk of electric vehicles taking over when reality is we are revising the CAFE targets lower....

      I am always interested in hearing what all of this will cost and how we will pay for it but that always seems to be missing.

      Is there a plan and timeline that people will buy electric cars because...

      Doesn't mean it is actually selling well and could be there are just quickly getting rid of the ones they have and are still getting. Could be low numbers and heavily discounted, that's the problem...

      Agree. Doesn't mean many people want them (are they selling 100 a month and this keeps them moving), they are good cars (so they are selling them as fast as they are making them but how fast are...

      You make this up?

      A financial expert would recommend you not buy a V8 sedan and try to limit your overall transportation costs regardless of how much money you make.

      Who would possibly say it...
    16. I recommend not getting technical or engineering...

      I recommend not getting technical or engineering insights from Facebook.

      From my "expert" opinion - The reason the truck looks like it does is it hit something really hard. :)

      You said the VW program was similar to returning a lease vehicle and it isn't because when you turn in a lease vehicle you aren't waiting on money to get another vehicle. If you have a leased car...

      I see the above as far more difficult than a standard lease turn in. Most go get car #2, turn in car #1 and worst case is you owe some charges. You aren't waiting on a large amount of money on car...

      I must have missed it. Does it spell out the timeline of events for the owner how this actually works for the guy that needs money/trade to buy another car?

      I said a long time ago I didn't see the buyback of possibly hundreds of thousands of cars being simple for anyone involved and one of the big problems will be how the average person that needs the...
