EV ideas.

Hey Taffy,

Over two years would still be $20,000/year (or so), for a half-decent conversion.
That simply isn't the kind of money that I can spare when paying off a homeloan.

The lawnmower sounds like a cool idea, unfortunately we're getting a townhouse, so we won't have a lawn.

EV ideas.

Just phoned them, they're out of everything due to the xmas sales.

They don't have a product brochure, website, or pamphlets.
(Although, they said they should have pamphlets in around two weeks. Anyone feel like popping round there in two weeks, then mailing me the pamphlets?).

EV ideas.

Hi everyone, Being that the other half wants a house, there is little chance that I'm going to convert a car to electric. That said, I do want some form of electric vehicle. I've been thinking one of those scooters that you stand up on (probably because I have limited imagination). I would like some...

Geoff,

I'm right to show up early. Seeing I'm not back at work, I'll just be bumming around the rest of the day, waiting for dinner :)

Holden first green car fund recipent

ZEVA and Blade aren't exactly major manufacturers.

That said, the Holden response is nothing but a yawn-fest.

20%? Convert the thing to diesel, and you'll get that.

I'm looking for people who run standard iCalendar-based calendar software.

Bas, I have to drive past your place on the way there anyway, and it'll only be a small detour on the way back, so you've got a lift, if you need one.

To be fair, most cars on that show receive a bagging.

I've seen more scathing reviews on BMWs, and they claim to like those..

Woody, we did have some issues a couple of days ago after the install of a new router.

Port 25 (the one used for sending the emails) was unavailable for a number of hours.

Alternatively, you can always trailer your EV in, if you can't get a week or two off work.

Mate, I'm so glad to hear that the work days helped you out. There are some really helpful people around here.

Again, apologies for not being there. Work doesn't take kindly to me not showing up.

I'll be looking forward to seeing this thing drive.

She doesn't update you every 20 kilometres that you need to keep driving straight?

Welcome to the AEVA. We'd love to see you (and your bike) at our meetings, too.

Just out of interest, how difficult do you think it would be to build a bike with a range of around 120 kilometres?
Was there much room left for batteries after you were done?
