"Also consider the horsepower that 100 mpg car would have, along with the weight.
In theory, there WAS a 60 mpg car back in the 50's.
But, it was lightweight, a death trap if you got into an accident, was stripped down to nothing (no…"
"Also student. Your 100mpg car uses 24kwh of diesel energy per 100km, meaning fuel cell provides 13kwh to the motor.
Since in your figures Leaf uses 26kwh, using the actual usage of 13kwh/100km gets you 700mile range..."
Very slight quibble - all cars pollute - the tires wear down over time and that leads to vulcanized rubber particles in the air and water. But yeah, aside from that, there's no engine combustion byproducts...
I live in a country where the price of diesel is approx. $6.00 and petrol/gas is $9.00 a US gallon. Plus a road tax of 3.3c per Km for diesel vehicles. Electric vehicle are free of road tax at the moment but that will not last and it…"
"And is still bullshit.
Your figure is that leaf uses 26kwh per 100km from in vehicle battery. (1.4c/mile / 3.3c/kwh /1.6km/mile * 100)
While EPA rates Leaf as using 20kwh from the wall to drive 100km.
"And that doesnt even take into consideration that regardless of efficiency's and comparisons, With electric powered drivetrain, Man has the option of harvesting his own fuel independent of central distribution.
in short, it allows us to…"
"And that "rosy scenario" assumes that petrol/diesel will cost less per gallon than they do today. Let's keep in mind that the only reason synthetic diesel might someday become competitive is because the price of petroleum keeps going…"
"A 54% efficient fuel cell system, from diesel to electricity? Discharge efficiency of li ion batteries is at worst 95%. And both systems use the same motor and regeneration...
Its still 2:1. 3.3cents per kwh in the battery, 8 cents per kwh in…"
"Then apparently he's living in the Land of Oz, cuz that sure ain't gonna happen in the real world!
And, 50-cent-student, the best indicator that what you're saying is total B.S. is the fact that Big Oil is paying you to post anti-EV…"
"In a world with 100mpg diesel cars, BEVs will have an equivalent of 200mpge. Your comparison is bullshit.
Also, 1.5$ a gallon is 4 cents per kwh of energy in diesel. In the most rosiest comparison from quite some time ago the ratio we come up with…"
"To be binding, a bilateral contract needs an offer, acceptance and consideration. A bilateral contract involves promises by both parties, while a unilateral contract only has one party promising to do something upon performance by the…"
"I seem to recall reading on one of the PRs or elsewhere that Criteria was unavailable due to scheduling conflict, hence the use of TesCom. I may have TesCom confused with someone else, but that's just what I remember.)
