Would you mind if I asked how that was calculated?
I'm thinking that if you travelled 46 miles, that likely you didn't use any gas at all.

Our average distance on battery charge came out to 46 miles over the course of the week. It is an average, it varied day to day.

Thanks. I was just curious. Also assumed you had driven only 46 miles, but obviously it was longer than that.

To the phony Gizmo from the real Gizmo....

Your post,#3958, directly above, is stupid.
It tells me that my presence here has caused you to react out of fear and paranoia.
That pleases me.

Is this habit of yours--hiding behind anonymity, taking other people's screen names, posting homophobic insults, and now just plain stupidity, some kind of emotional disability?
Or do you just get a little high every now and then and get your rocks off acting stupid?

Wow. Just got back from some awesome music. I see G.O.D. is up to his usual "do as I say, not as I do".
I once made the comment that I relished the fact that the dolt was judging me 13 times every post. He said that my being pleased only proved how childish I was.

I quote him:

Hmmmmm ..... The hater has a double standard. As if we didn't already know that. A little bit of your own advice. Don't let it bug you. And don't be pleased. That's childish.
OK. Just thought you'd appreciate some of your own advice.

OK. Just thought you'd appreciate some of your own advice.
Obviously you think theft of another persons screen name is acceptable.
And posting crude homophobic insults and nonsense posts is perfectly ok.
Plus doing all that repeatedly, whilst hiding behind a "location hidden".

And then when someone says something truthful about the silliness, that's wrong?

Well, I wouldn't say too much about "usual tricks" or "double standards" or "wrong" if I were you.
You aren't squeaky clean when it comes to confrontational posts and dissing others.

Contrary to your usual claims about me initiating things, this character using my screen name came out of the blue with no prompting from me.
And I called him on it. The guy's a coward and a clown.
Just like I'm now calling you now about your hypocracy.

Obviously He's irritated by my presence here--as are you apparently. That pleases me.
Well, that's not going to change. I'm staying, in spite of your efforts to have me leave..

To Luv volt, Root, and whoever you call yourself this week......

I don't play the Username/ISP game.
Gizmo is the name.
Just Gizmo.
The real Gizmo.
No one else.
I travel weekly between my home and Toronto/Burlington/Cottage.
That's why the location changes from time to time.
I amuse myself getting under your skin while travelling.

And I don't bother with the judging emoticons either.
Those are for kids and adults who act like kids.

So if you choose to get on people's case about such charades, kindly deal with those who indulge in them.

Don't flatter yourself.
Thinking about you is of no interest to me.
If you choose to play your sleazy charades, feel free.
It merely confirms your fear of someone intellectually, civilly, and morally superior to you.

Hey hater. Read my post again. You are obviously devoid of logical thinking. Where did you see that I said that it was OK?

I said that you stated that it pleases you that you are bugging people.

That is exactly what I stated previously. It's OK for you, but it's not OK for me.

It's that simple. Go back and read and don't add anything to what I wrote.

You're going off the beaten path is called ranting.

He says he doesn't think of you. Should I go back and count the number of posts again? That would be a waste of time. Needless to say, he didn't think of you about 50 times.

Hey Dolt, at least I don't support terrorists. No young American's are losing their lives protecting my electricity.

And I don't have to plug in when I go out. I leave that to the electrics. They need all the help they can get.

And FYI, most charging stations charge money. Much more than the electricity is worth. But still much cheaper than gas.

See, you learned something.

11,500 miles. 8 gallons of gas purchased.

What an awesome car.

Do you own a 2013? If not, do you use Mountain Mode to store charge for your destination?

You seem to overlook the fact that 40,000 Americans lose their lives every year due to toxic emissions from coal fired electrical generating plants in the USA.
