venezuela fuel is cheap, subsidised heavily by the government .... seems to more oil than water in these hills.
I fill up for under 2 dollars US and can run the boat for hours!

I'm driving my Electrichi to the Beach which I modified.
I got 3 kites & 3 Boards in there.
One charge = 50 miles (for now until I upgrade for 200 miles / charge
Top speed = 55 miles / highway speed (until I upgrade it to 85 miles)
Efficiency: I pay 1.5 peny per mile, :lol:
but you pay 8 Cents / mile if Gasolin cost $2.00 / Gallon,
if you get average 25 miles Gas Mileage with your car.

DrLW, that is awesome. I would love an electric car. One thing the F#^$ing irritates me is that the car manufacturers make the electric cars look like golf carts because they do not want people to buy them. They've constistantly bought electric car manufactories and closed them because they do not adhere to some arftificial standard the industry has put on them (like on demand was must reach 400 mile on one load....the average driver drives less than 40 miles a day.

[rant]
If you wonder why they are in trouble right now? It is the same reason why the music industry is in trouble...they are not listening to their customers, but instead are force feeding some 400 hp monster trucks on people that really will not be able to afford the gas. I talked to a guy at the beach. He lives on the North Shore, works in town, and at some point spent about $1500 worth of gas a month (he said)...all because he could not show up to work in a puny car. [/rant]
