re: Hopefully EV owners in Florida are filling up cans with electricity for the coming days - Korkstand
[quote]You keep acting like these are widespread installations on the system. They aren’t.[/quote]Natural gas generators are far more common than you think they are. I have access to at least 3 of them just in my local family. The poster above you is aware of plenty of them in his neighborhood. ...

[quote]While at the same time acting like gasoline is impossible to find if the pumps aren’t working. [/quote]Gas/diesel are hard to find before/during/after storms. At bare minimum demand spikes way up, and supplies are restricted, so shortages of some severity happen. That's kind of a given. I nev...

[quote]you appear to be giving EV owners all sorts of credit for owning working generators, solar panels, etc.[/quote]I'm saying these things are not hard to find, not that they all own them. I've made that pretty clear with numerous references to neighbors and businesses having generators, and I ev...

Despite the claim "yes it's a real tweet" at the top, that is not a real tweet. It's not on Twitter, nor is it on Politwoops, the site that saves deleted tweets by politicians. The unlikeliest of contrived scenarios, disbelief of verifiable facts, belief of easily disprovable fake tweets, this ...

[quote]honestly though, without "breaking" or the engine running in reverse to induce the charge there is no regen charge. So a truck would have to tow you 10 miles while you exert force in the opposite direction of the tow?[/quote] The car must be in gear but you do not apply the brakes. The brakin...

re: Hopefully EV owners in Florida are filling up cans with electricity for the coming days - Korkstand
[quote]Your original assertion is that one can simply tow it for 10 minutes and get 40-50 miles of charge when the truth is that it's not that simple at all[/quote]Except it is quite literally that simple. [quote]and when considering the power requirements of the towing vehicle it's also not very ...

[quote]Been through many myself. Never have I ever had difficulty finding gasoline after a hurricane.[/quote]Huh, lucky you I guess. Similarly never have I ever had difficulty finding someone running a generator when the power is out. Besides my own, there are several more within earshot when I s...

[quote]so regen charging is better than Level 2? really?[/quote]The car tells you how fast it's charging and discharging while driving. You can peg out the charge rate at 60+ kw when you let off the accelerator at something like 45 or 50 mph. ...

[quote]According to this you can damage your Tesla and void the warranty by doing that.

[quote]So, wait. To adapt to this lifestyle I have to invest in: •A $100k+ EV truck (I’ve already stated why I need towing capabilities) •A $10k+ home charging system •$10k+ on a home generator or solar panels or both.[/quote]Nope. You can just pay a neighbor or a local business for use of thei...

[quote]Never been through a hurricane?[/quote]Been through many. It is often a challenge to find gas, but there are always more than a dozen homes in my neighborhood with natgas generators running. We've been over this many times ITT. Unless you are parked right next to a working gas pump, you a...

[quote]Regarding EV, is the main battery running out after 10 years truly a concern?[/quote]It's less about the age and more about the miles and battery charge cycles associated with that. Real-world data (for Teslas at least) shows that the batteries tend to retain 90% of their capacity after ~...
