Haha I would raise the proce and start putting bills in if she's the one that does the most damage. When it's filled you get a nice dinner at your favorite restaurant.

You got your butt kicked just in the last couple of posts, hater.First you claim that electric cars are killing 40,000 people a year.I prove to you that most electric cars are sold in CA., and that most of our power comes from hydroelectric, nuclear and natural gas and geothermal, not coal.

http://energyalmanac.ca.gov/electricity/elect...

You conveniently drop the electric car subject, but you very weakly try to save face by stating that it doesn't necessarily take electricity to produce gas.WHAT?You say that it takes fossil fuel to produce gas.WHAT?

Listen up.Those drilling rigs, pumps, refineries all take electricity to run.I don't care if the power plant is 50 miles away or right on sight.You have to convert those fossil fuels to electricity to run those units.Sheeeeeeeesh.News flash.All electric power plants need fuel to run.Do you even know what a generator is?A generator, whether small or gigantic, like those used by refineries, all use fossil fuels.BUT THEY SPIT OUT ELECTRICITY!!!

I find myself explaining the obvious to someone who claims to be smart enough to figure this out.

Why don't you just do a search for "Electricity to produce gasoline"?You'll find more than a few.Do you think I made it up?

YOu know something, Mr. iluvmyroot,? You are actually quite the stupid SOB and a liar to boot. On Friday you proudly state how many "Music Concerts" you have to attend on the weekend and you proceed to post on this thread all day and into the evening on Saturday and Sunday. You are a liar by nature and I actually do not believe that you can help yourself. You and your other personality (root) have lost all credibility and the ability to make rational points in any debate. Your continued dependency on these stupid U-tube sites also does nothing to help your position.
To quote a very smart eighth grade dropout that I once knew, "Mr. iluvmyroot" you know a lot of things that just aint so".

And read your last line from your retort.

"And just because most Volts are sold in California is no excuse for what those coal fired plants cause to our planet".

WHAT?

Where did I ever defend coal powered electricity?I live in California, pal.We have the strictest environmental laws in the world.Don't go beating your Canadian chest around me.

In fact, I pointed out, per the link, that CA's electricity is 4% coal.In fact, that link is 2 years old.The number is now just under 3%.I just couldn't find the newest link.I'll find it and post it for you because I know how you love facts.Yeah right!

Once again, you are either not understanding what even you say, or you are just trying to save face.I suspect it's both.

The hater now claims that I am using other screen names to do other posts.

I love watching The Peoples Court.JudgeMarilyn Millian is not only a very smart lady, but she has some great one liners for liars.My favorite is.

"not even you believe the lies you are saying."

Now you are stooping to the level of those you accuse.It's pathetic watching You stoop lower and lower.

And another thing, he tells me to go back a month to show that I posted more than him.How convenient.He quit posting during that time.You are so transparent, hater.

Not even a good try.

OK dolt you have 13 X 3 to give me.

Hey Root.

Do me a great favour.
In fact do all of us a great favour
Ignore me, and everybody else.
Then we won't have to put up with your gross and filthy insults.

Now, if your other screen names will oblige as well..........especially the Great Pretender LMV)........

Maybe then the rest of us can have some honest and intelligent conversation.

Didn't take you long to stop ignoring!!!

Truth be told, you have taken on a number of screen names.
One of them happens to be LMV.
I have little regard for either.

Both simply can't handle someone who challenges.
And the result is filth and condescension--one does the filth and the other the condescension.
And only because you don't like the responses you don't want to hear.

To LMV do you see what I mean?

The absolute best thing to do is just ignore him. Reasonable conversation is not what hes after. Just hit the ignore button.

Cool. I suspect your wife likes Sport Mode. I love it, but that yearn for hypermiling kicks back in after a couple of quick launches. I wish I had the Hold Mode. But, as I stated, I do pretty good with Mountain Mode. It saves me up to 15 miles of E for my destination.

Even if I'm out of E, I can put it in MM and it will do the same. It's not as efficient as yours, bit I do pretty well.

OK, Happy motoring.

Yes. It has 4 modes as apposed to my 3. The mountain mode is supposed to be for going into big mountain ranges. But a lot of people have come to love it for other benefits it gives.

Here's a pretty good article that explains MM. It doesn't cover everything, though.

I hope the dolt doesn't read that. This guy is another driver that gets 43 mpg freeway in gas mode. Just like Mpgomatic did.

Their beer is nasty. I could see it tasting like warm urine.
