What will we do with old EV batteries 20 years from now?

Make money.  Not only are batteries lasting (and will last) much longer than what was originally expected, scientists are expecting multiple uses for old batteries use once the first large wave of EV vehicles are taken off the road - say 20 or so years from now.  [more]



EPA releases MPG equivalent value for Nissan Leaf

November 23, 2010 – Comments (4)

The window sticker will state 99 MPG Equivalent.  This is based on 33.7 KWH being equal to one gallon of gasoline.  While Nissan reported a range of around 100 miles per full charge, the aggressive driving style of most Americans will likely give it a driving range closer to 75 miles per full charge.  Charging takes 7 hours.  [more]



The Fuel Film

November 22, 2010 – Comments (0)

I watched the revised version of this documentary soon after it was finished, but recently watched it again.  Some parts (I believe) are stretching the truth, and for a documentary some parts are a little too personal (mushy).  I personally like documentaries that tend to be a bit more fact based.  Nonetheless, I think this film is worth 2 hours of your time.  While it bashes petroleum based fuels repeatedly, its not as one-sided as I thought it was going to be.  He is fairly critical of corn-based ethanol as well as deforestation for crops to ultimately generate ethanol or biofuels.  If you've already seen it, leave a comment or two below detailing why you did or did not enjoy the film.  If you have a Netflix account, its free to watch on-line.  [more]
