    Who has a gas guzzling carbon sewer?

    I see that there is now a plan afoot to make gas guzzlers more expensive and electric cars and hybrids cheaper so who has a gas guzzler? I have to confess that I have got one and I have no intention of changing that.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    bugger those electric things. just took a mahindra pikup for a test drive today. think i will stick to diesels for awhile at least till you can drive 700kms on a single charge and it takes less than 2 hrs for a recharge.

    I have a Ford Territory, it's a 4.0L petrol xr6 motor pushing around a 3.5 tonne SUV. I'm pretty sure the fuel gauge is just a mirror image of the speedometer....
    I must admit it is very very nice to drive though, super comfy, good power and a heavy vehicle that just sits on the road and never feels upset

    No carbon sewer in battery manufacture, plus disposal at the end of life, let alone the imported coal been burnt at Huntly to charge the green machines, the loony left very short sighted.

    can see the use of hybrids and if i lived in town i would consider one but pure electric just makes no sense to me. have a new 2.4 TD triton and it uses a lot less gas than the 3.0 L outback... or the 80series landcruiser for that matter

    Are we going to dam every river we have or drill for oil and burn that or mine coal and burn that or go Nuclear (my preferred option) to power all these electric vehicles?

    Hypotheticly if we changed our entire fleet to electric our total generation output would not be enough to charge them even with everything else in the country turned off!

    My Triton is the most fuel efficient 4 wheeled vehicle I have ever owned but will no doubt be listed as a guzzeler yet if I put a towbar on the swift and used it to tow the boat instead I would be burning way more fuel.

    We've got two Volvo's - yeah, yeah, yeah - diesel XC90 & petrol V50.
    Both engines 2.4L, both 5 cyl, both autos - both give similar gas mileage - 10L/100kms.
    XC90 weighs in around 2 tonne, V50 around 1700kg.
    XC90 is our preferred transport, V50 as a fill in when 2 cars required.
    Until hybrid/electrics can match distance per tank fill/recharge and purchase price is similar, we're sticking with what we know WORKS!

    I have three vehicles at home and all are V8s, smallest is 4.2 litre diesel, 4.5 litre diesel and the biggest is a 7.4 litre petrol. Greens not my thing but once again a bunch of fuckwits are telling me how to wipe my arse. The mongrels will want to smack me with more taxes.

    I’ve been told that EV’s will max out at 5% of the vehicle fleet.

    will add that i am a 2hour drive each way to the nearest "decent" grocery store (not including local 4square or on the spot dairy) so good luck finding an EV that will do 400km and over 500m climbing on one charge

    Komrade Jacinda has lots of magical bullshit dust. Once the economy crashes we'll all be dependent on the state. The thought of all the socialism she can give us is just so nice and huggable.
