    Semi General Discussion

    In fact, it is not uncommon to have to replace tires on tractors or trailers. Also it might not be easy to keep track of a trailer's tire mileage. If you remember, at the time of the presentation, the Semi were using the Michelin super single tire instead of the dual tires combination. In...

    Semi General Discussion

    Also the Tesla Semi don't have (yet) a cabin with a sleeping area, so maybe Tesla would provide some kind of Uber ride to a motel and restaurant when charging the batteries and taking a required rest. While some local Tesla technicians would take care of the charging and machanic work, like...

    Model Y Hitch Spare Tire Carrier

    FSD will not work. Same problem than with a bicycle carrier: Because of the rear camera obstruction, FSD might make a sudden jump left or right thinking of a possible rear collision. I have this problem every time I try using FSD when I carry bicycles. This is not fun and even dangerous...

    500 + Mile Range Debate

    Unless there will be superchargers every 50 to 100 miles, to be able to replace ICEs or and PHEVs, EVs will need to get get more range. Have you ever try to travel in Montana with an EV? For many years I would like to viisit the Glacier National Park, but I would have to rent an ICE to do that.

    The permit is for 60 stalls and 15 cabinets (typically for 4 pedestals of 250 kW) and two transformers. Looking at the Google satellite view, it seems that there are about 65 parking spots. Since there should be some double spots for ADA access, the number of 60 stalls seems appropriate. I...

    New Jersey State to Ask EV Buyers To Pay 4 Years of Registration Up Front

    The tax should certainly be based on mileage and weight of the car. This is not a democratic law as small vehicles used only for short commute get taxed the same way as heavy users, such as UBER taxis or limousines, or truckcs used by building contractors.
