Re: United States Ends ICE

I wonder if there is a way to keep Daunti in the basement? No need to ruin all of ES.

Re: Wind and Solar vs Coal, Gasoline, Nuclear

Before I bought my first Volt in 2016 I did my damnest to buy a Honda powered from NG that I could refill at home. Even though I live in a tree hugging part of CA I couldn't find a dealer within 100 miles that would sell one to me.

Maybe it's for the best as the Volts have been outstanding so far.

Re: Milk Alternatives

Back to milk... i don't consume it whatsoever.. modern milk is basically sugar water since they've stolen the healthy fats and vitamins from it. No need for an alternative. Speaking as a guy who made his money partly from the dairy industry, I agree. 1 and 2% milk is crap. they took out the good st...

Re: Cured my wife's anxiety and my depression with nutritional supplements.

I think it did me some good. Not sure, but I have to say that I do have a bit more 'gitupango' in the AM. I will definitely keep taking them. Now I'm thinking about taking some type of vit D. Any suggestions?

thanx

Isn't it just a standard flare fitting? You can buy a cheap HF tool that makes the lines or do what I usually did and just buy already made up brake lines.

No worries Ed, It's always best to be safe.

When I owned a bunch of trucks, I always said I never worried to much if they didn't start, it was the not stopping that kept me up at night.

Re: C Cab Hot Rod Power Advice

I'm not sure why you feel you need 2 cylinders. They use them on cars for safety reasons. One brake cylinder will stop your cart just fine. Just like on a bike the rear brakes don't do much for stopping power anyway. Like they do on cars, you can use a hydraulic proportioning valve to fine tune fron...

I don't imanage that there are too many mods you can do. You might try the Spark forums. I got a bunch of good info on the GM Volt forum for my Volt.

Re: C Cab Hot Rod Power Advice

It's coming along nicely! You are getting pretty good with body work.

The body lines are pleasing too. It's probably just me, but I'd get rid of the Budweiser cans or maybe paint them. They look a bit tacky to me. Let Budweiser pay for their own advertising. They can afford it.

Interesting read. My doctor has always told me that if a person eats right there in no need for multivitamins. I think I'm going to look further into this. I'm close to giving B1 and B6 a try at a 'medium' dose. Thanks neptronix. I might not agree with your decision to not vote, but I do appreciate ...

Re: cost estimation qte power house with 18650

It will be hard to justify going off grid when you are only paying $.11/ kWh for grid power. $23/month for the connection is high but I'd want a grid tie or generator for backup anyway.

Re: Farfles Electric Ultralight.

Yes, he is going to be missed. I was lucky to meet Farfle and his dad at one of the Barstow races where his bike beat Luke's Death bike for a 2nd . PaulD took 1st. I still own one of his cool rear swing arms. Farfle was ahead of his time and I'm sure would have gone far in life.
