Re: Winter temp gauge issues

Never really left, just got very busy for a few years... and also diversified my fleet and interests. Maybe I'll update my profile to reflect that a bit.

As odd as this may sound to some,...

Re: Winter temp gauge issues

I would not feel bad about those fuel economy numbers because a standard gasoline civic will be almost twice as bad under the same conditions. With that said, you can certainly do better and the...

Re: Winter temp gauge issues

Hi Bigev007

Do you have a block heater and do you use it? If so, what's your plug-in time before you drive off?

Re: Stanwell blames solar for decline in fossil fuel baseload

I don't disagree.

My area of the country produces 98% of its power from hydro and it even exports a fair amount of it to Ontario and the US.

For local residents, the price has been pretty...

Re: Tesla S Craziness... And Why I Am Not Entirely Won Over
