    If they can make those work, with enough range to be practical, it would be huge for southern California.

    Can you legally log hugging trees as part of a 30 minute break? Have any trailer manufacturers figured out a way to make trailers out of hemp or granola?

    Well, I was going to recharge it, but some hipster in a Tesla took the one charger here. Then his car burst into flames. Tell ya what, bring me a couple group 31’s and a generator and I’ll get this virtue signaling garbage truck back to the yard and clean it out.

    I figure it'll take them a month to venture out that far with it, just enough time for them to think it's wonderful and order a bunch more, only to realize they threw money out the window.
     
    D.Tibbitt Thanks this.
  8. Let use the diesel generator to charge the electric car, truck and telsa

    You'll see electric trucks with a nice little generator on the deck plate, we'll call it the extended range option.
     
    D.Tibbitt Thanks this.

  10. That's the solar powered generator or that small 25 gallon Gas/ Diesel tank generator?
     
    D.Tibbitt Thanks this.
