Clearly he was surfing keywords "Tesla truck" or "electric pickup".  Or he was looking into gainful employment riding on the back of said "garbage truck".  Even the most loving parents have to kick their fledglings out of the nest eventually.

Maybe he was looking at Diesel or Future of ICE Autos. :P

16,800 miles.  This tank:  23.034543 MPG.  Truck is doing fine.  It's dirty, which I don't like, but being scared to death by the virus hype, I cut my car wash budget to zero dollars.

What is this?  Weird.  Paranoia, or something more?  I've been feeling an odd vibration in 3rd gear.  I thought it was the road and dismissed it as nothing at first, but it seems more consistent and more than coincidental, and on many different road surfaces.  More quiet, alert driving will need to be done before I come to a conclusion... and possibly lodge a warranty concern.

It's cause you bought a truck form a Woman run company since you Hate her so much. Maybe you should go back to that Mexican or Fiat built Jeep you loved so much. 🤔

413.3 miles, 5 minutes later I had 18.268 gallons of gallons of gas pumped in.  22.624261 MPG.

What's with the millionth-place calculations? 
Getting tax reimbursements out that far to the right of the decimal?
I'd like to know what the billionth place number is next time.

powered by...gasoline?  Maybe diesel?  

Solar cell.  Some things are appropriate, some things are not.  Shocking how that works, eh?

Nice you just created .162 Metric Tons of Green House Gas, warming the world, melting the polar caps and polluting the local air.

Thank you,

I don't think you should be talking, you are lucky you can work from home but when you do drive your vehicles are way more polluting then ocnblu truck.  So how about stopping with hypocrisy, at least until you actually buy an EV?

As long as he attacks me for supporting EVs, he gets the same in return. I know I drive big ICE SUV's and I refuse to buy any new ICE till full size EV truck / SUV happens.

I know how much CO2 my auto's produce and I will continue my friendly banter with Ocnblu.

No Hypocrisy from me only facts of pointing out his roll in global warming and refusal to look at facts and create fake EV info.

Looking in the mirror is hard for those that want to only look through rose colored glasses.

You can say 'until exactly what I want comes along and I decide to buy one' all day long, but that runs dangerously close to the 'vaporware' scenario. IMO - either support both until you make the switch & divest yourself of IC, or stop bashing other people's preferences. Again, just one guy's opinion.

BTW : 'oil-dripping, smoke spewing' comments certainly could fall under 'fake IC info'.

I know you see auto's that belch smoke, drip oil  and are anything but running the way they were engineered especially old 15 year old auto's, nothing fake about that.

I do support both, but I am all for the health of everyone and moving to EVs.

You know I support your argument here 100%...but...

That bolded statement is not exactly 100% correct nor factual.

Vehicles that are well maintained by their owners for those 15 years actually DO run they way they were engineered all these years...

 THIS...should be applied to all of us.  Anything less of this....is hypocritical.  And THAT applies to ALL of us.

EVERYONE in here drives an ICE vehicle.  Except for booyah, and he's incognito.  He's the only one who would be an authority on EV ownership, and even then, he might choose to wear his own rose colored glasses when reporting his experiences.  I don't know.

NOTHING is wart-free.
