Peavey Mart – Doing Good Things

I checked out PeaveyMart’s Store Finder and I’m pleased to see that 26 out of 37 locations in western Canada have charging stations for electric vehicles. They’ve committed to having stations in all stores so they are working on it. I’m hoping they’ll get to Winkler, Manitoba soon, so I can visit some relatives without having to overstay my welcome charging up from 120V outlets which take 6h in an ElectraMeccanica Solo. I feel awkward charging up at a hotel (Days Inn, Winkler) and not staying the night but I can always find interesting things to do in a hardware store. 😉

    How did Australia go about doing this? Did they melt the rock with a solar oven, then nefariously inject methane and other gases, then dumped said rocks on unsuspecting people? I think it was an early version of carbon sequestration, that prompted the very notion of booming and popping rocks.

    dougman you are going to kick you self when I tell how you are in fact so close. Being in melted state is key. You forget volcanoes put out molten rock did you not.

    Some of the high explosive volcanic rocks are formed by such a simple process. Lava meets coal/organic material in a particular way. So basically coal seam gas trapped inside volcanic rocks. So while the volcanic rocks are still molten rock its possible for gasses of different properties to get trapped inside the rock before it sets. This is fairly much burning off in a low O2 environment and producing a flammable gas that cannot burn any more due to having nothing to burn with. So what is inside the rock cannot burn until the rock cracks letting O2 in. Just to be nightmare this can cascaded across the rock as each gas bubble in the rock gets broken open and explodes in a chain reaction. So these rocks can be scarily dangerous. Each lava field of these rocks has a different form method and different reactions.

    Leave it to the Australians to screw with geology and stuff things up!
    No leave it to the country of Australia to have had odd ball events geological events happen to make the place even more dangerous. Like having the most of the most venomous snakes was not enough.

    “So you have rocks that go pop and rocks that boom. ”

    You know, I loved pop-rocks as a kid. However, when I learned about Little Mikey of LIFE cereal fame, that he died from the explosive effects of mixing Pop Rocks candy with soda pop. I had nightmares and never ate one again.

  4. oiaohm says:

    DrLoser reality here dougman never had a valid point. Attempting to defend him will just prove you are a idiot who was not up in the fact either.

  5. oiaohm says:

    Pogsey, “booming” is not the same as an explosion is it?
    Dougman booming rocks is the same. Booming is referring to the noise made of the explosion.

    There are rocks that explode but don’t make a large noise. Those are not booming rocks.

    Basalt can be a booming rock. This is why it should be heat in a protected area for quite a few hours before being used in fireplace construction to make sure it stable.

    So you have rocks that go pop and rocks that boom. Difference the rocks that just go pop normally not send a flying fragment at lethal force.

    Sedimentary rock used around a camp file might split might scare the heck out of you. Like Sedimentary rock like sandstone has been used in fireplaces for years because it fairly safe. So it s rock that goes pop. Ok the rock is damaged but not flying fragment of lethal force. Pumice on the other hand volcanic material structurally stronger resisted heating for longer and goes boom with way more violent force.

    These things being mostly trapped water vapour, but also (in the case of those Mexican sub-oceanic rocks) Argon and Helium and stuff.
    Australia trapped methane and other flammable items can be in the rock.

    Now, interestingly, there is such a thing as an “exploding volcanic rock,” although so far it has only been found in a deep ocean trench off the coast of Mexico
    Access csiro data look up. There is a section of river and other areas marked off limits to camp fires due to the old volcanic rock being explosive in Australia. So what was found in the deep ocean trench off the coast of Mexico explains some of the Australian left over rocks from volcano how they were formed. So yes exploding volcanic rocks are found on the surface in Australia. Just to add to the many things here that will attempt to kill you.

    Now, interestingly, there is very, very little of this stuff out there in Australia, what with the edge of the tectonic plate being way out in the ocean and there being very, very few volcanoes … even dormant volcanoes … dotted up and down the east coast.
    http://www.ga.gov.au/__data/assets/image/0010/14788/GA19296.jpg
    Take note of the lava maps. Not all the volcanoes locations are on that map.
    http://www.geomaps.com.au/images/eastausvolcanotrack.jpg
    Every red triangle on that map is a dormant volcano. So 15 of them with active mantel activity under them so are not technically extinct. The volcano that are classed as extinct are are not on the map either. Yes each dormant volcano has a formal name just in case something happens.

    Why are the lava flow recorded is that we have lava flows that are not that old that we don’t know where the volcano that caused them is. Some are appear to date to be only 600 years old and no centre has ever been identified.

    The left behind rock you find still has the properties of what they found off the coast of Mexico today. Basically you don’t need a recently active volcanoes to have explosive volcanic rocks.

    The interest part about finding the explosives volcanic rocks in Australia is that they are on the surface now. For them to form they would have had to been under pressure or maybe there is some other method.

    So this is DrLoser going of with half a clue. It would have paid to check what kinds of rocks exist in Australia. Yes explosive volcanic rocks as far as we know Australia is most likely the only place you will find them on the surface in any major quantity. Of course there is a local name for them.

    Hammy has no geological skill to tell one rock from another.
    dougman this is your wild guess presuming again and being completely wrong. So far you are not getting anything right.

  6. DrLoser wrote, “Basalt is an igneous rock (Volcanic!, Lava! Head For The Hills!) which is … … not very likely to “go pop.””

    It can still rupture from differential heating causing differential expansion which can exceed elastic limits and go “pop”. Any time an elastic body ruptures bad things can happen. Don’t get too close. I knew a guy many years ago who nearly died when his hammer exploded. The hardened head had some strains trapped in it which were released dramatically when he struck a steel rod with the hammer. A splinter of steel lodged in his aorta after passing through his leather apron. That was a case of poor manufacture and usage and plain bad luck but given enough pieces of rock and enough fires bad things can happen too.

  7. DrLoser says:

    Basalt, that’s the thing.

    Basalt is an igneous rock (Volcanic!, Lava! Head For The Hills!) which is …

    … not very likely to “go pop.”

  8. DrLoser says:

    It’s been a while, Robert, and I don’t recall you answering this simple question.

    But why do you allow an ignorant fantasist like oiaohm to drool his misinformation and lies all over what should be a respectable board for intelligent discussion?

  9. DrLoser says:

    I think I can explain Fifi’s “exploding volcanic rock” theory, Douglas, btw.

    The poor little lad seems a bit confused between igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks. Perhaps the fish-net stockings he wears whilst “doing his duty” under the lamp-posts in the far outback are somehow constricting the blood flow to his brain …

    Now, interestingly, there is such a thing as an “exploding volcanic rock,” although so far it has only been found in a deep ocean trench off the coast of Mexico, and presumably from a (rare) juvenile undersea volcano. Actually, it doesn’t so much “explode” as “go pop,” but we’ll allow Fifi that small difference.

    Anyhow. A lesson in basic geology follows for Fifi.

    Sedimentary rock is extremely unlikely to “go pop.” This has absolutely nothing at all to do with the fact that it is sedimentary, as I hope to explain.

    Similarly, metamorphic rock is also extremely unlikely to “go pop.” This is because metamorphic rock is, well, it has metamorphised … over quite a long period. It might even have started out as “volcanic rock!” But right now it’s just plain old boring highly condensed rock.

    Which leaves us with the putative thrill of camping out in the Outback and encountering igneous rock. That might be “volcanic,” as our excitable little friend claims, or if we were to translate Hamster into National Enquirer, even Lava! (Same thing, basically.) Now, interestingly, there is very, very little of this stuff out there in Australia, what with the edge of the tectonic plate being way out in the ocean and there being very, very few volcanoes … even dormant volcanoes … dotted up and down the east coast. But I guess you could find the stuff if you looked hard enough.

    Now, pumice (which is yer basic “volcanic rock”) is indeed susceptible to “going pop.”

    But that’s not because it’s Volcanic, let alone Lava. It’s because it’s permeable to the things that make a rock go “pop.” These things being mostly trapped water vapour, but also (in the case of those Mexican sub-oceanic rocks) Argon and Helium and stuff.

    (For Fifi’s benefit — the reason that you see compressed inert gases inside those Mexican igneous rocks is because they are formed under the ocean. Huge amounts of pressure will do that for you. In 99+% cases of super-terranean rocks, you’re simply looking at compressed water vapour.)

    Now, the thing here is: if you are worried about camping out — although I suspect that Fifi’s entire monetary existence comes from “camping out” — then you have to choose your heated rocks carefully.

    Not on the basis of volcanic origin. That would be stupendously dim-witted, a la Fifi. More along the lines of porousness and wetness, which are the two obvious criteria for a rock to “go pop.”

    Sandstone and limestone are also prone to “going pop,” Fifi. Just a bit of friendly advice, in the hopes of preserving you from some awful catastrophe during an innocent attempt to throw a couple of prawns on a primitive beach barbie.

  10. dougman says:

    Pogsey, “booming” is not the same as an explosion is it? Hammy, was not talking about explosions, but “booming volcanic rocks”.

    Now, I never questioned the authenticity of exploding rocks, in fact, it isn’t wise to use river rocks in a campfire. But Hammy pointed out directly “volcanic booming rock” which has me at a loss, since Hammy has no geological skill to tell one rock from another.

  11. dougman wrote, “booming rocks are pure fantasy”.

    Nonsense. Stones are often used to make fireplaces and such. Some stones do burst when subjected to heat because they contain trapped water which expands when heated. Also, in deep mines, excavation can upset the equilibrium pressure of rock and cause bursts. Rock under extreme pressure flows. I’ve been in the salt mines of Saskatchewan and seen drilled holes in rock that are nearly collapsed. Rock under enough stress will break releasing force enough to break rather than just flow. Uneven heating can cause rock to fracture as well. That’s an ancient technique for breaking rock.

    So, there are three instances of rocks bursting. Some meteorites can also explode due to very high kinetic energy.

  12. dougman wrote, “explain “alot” when NSA resources are infinite, in other words, explain infinity”.

    One explanation is that, with infinite computing resources, NSA could map every message to every other message. ie. If encryption is the process of hiding messages, infinite decryption is the process of making every random number meaningful. The concept is insane.
    e.g.

    • “we attack tonight” = 4379986 = “The flowers in the pot are blue”
    • 987623543459865 = “Donald Trump owes Putin $2.5billion”
    • output of “one time pad” = infinite number of encryption algorithms applied to an infinite number of messages

    The only reason that encryption/decryption is useful is because computing power is finite.

  13. oiaohm says:

    speed too much the total currency collapses.
    Before dougman the idiot think this is a typo it is not.

    Spend is if you have the currency. Speed is referring is how fast you produce new currency. So there is a limit to how fast you can add new currency to the system to not causing bad things to happen to the currency value quickly.

    Yes I do make spelling errors every now and again. But a lot of times it not a spelling error but an exact meaning.

  14. oiaohm says:

    The U.S. government is backed by fiat currency, infinite dollars correlates to infinite budgets.
    dougman does not work that way.
    https://dailyreckoning.com/fiat-currency/

    Reality you don’t understand fiat currency. If NSA did do the infinite budget stunt this leads to devaluing currency. NSA has a USA government budget of X figure because if they speed too much the total currency collapses.

    So dougman another pure idiot statement not based on fact. Yes fiat currency allows you to use an unlimited money but if you do a loaf of bread cost a ever increasing value as the value of the currency decreases. In some fiat currency countries a loaf of bread has end up costing a few billion dollars of their currency. You don’t want to consider what 1 PC would cost in a country that has made that mistake.

    So the amount of processing power the NSA can purchase is locked by the fiat currency system as expanding their budget past a particular point just results in currency devaluing so the increasing budget does not increase the processing power they can buy at that point.

    As I said NSA is limited by money. Not only the amount of money their budget is worth but what the notes themselves are worth to buy equipment with.

    So the USA currency has a finite value divide by number of amount of currency in circulation.

    Infinite dollars directly results in each dollar finite value of the currency/infinity. So toilet paper would have more value than currency.

    dougman what are you going for a complete list of statements where you cannot get a single fact right. So that you can claim mental impairment when you end up in court.

    Are you ready to own up to your on going list of mistakes yet.

  15. dougman says:

    “dougman NSA has a finite budget and they have a finite amount of computer processing power. ”

    You’re so dope.

    The U.S. government is backed by fiat currency, infinite dollars correlates to infinite budgets.

  16. oiaohm says:

    Fifi, please explain “alot” when NSA resources are infinite, in other words, explain infinity.
    dougman NSA has a finite budget and they have a finite amount of computer processing power. That they have to allocate effectively. Anyone who claims NSA has infinite resources is a idiot. USA budget tells you that NSA resources are finite.

    Basically here is dougman making up another not researched claim. The one thing we cannot make for ourselves is more time. Time is another finite limit NSA has to deal with. Not everything is money but money limits NSA processing power and time forces them to be selective.

  17. dougman says:

    “Reality it costs the NSA a lot to decode.”

    Fifi, please explain “alot” when NSA resources are infinite, in other words, explain infinity.

  18. oiaohm says:

    dougman I missed 9.
    https://www.cnet.com/au/news/feds-put-heat-on-web-firms-for-master-encryption-keys/
    NSA and FBI put pressure of areas of interest to them to get the master encryption keys so they can decode the stuff faster. Without spending a fortune decoding 90%+ worthless.

    Reality it costs the NSA a lot to decode. Its not a cheap process so they are selective about it unless something happens to make it cost effective.

    So you put up at least 7 invalid points with the number of errors I have made over time you should have been able to find 7 valid errors.

    dougman basically why should I back down when you are completely wrong and particular over volcanic rocks and the danger they are that is something that can cost someone their life. You would be the stupid idiot who puts it in fire only to have some other unlucky person walk past and die from the flying fragment.

  19. oiaohm says:

    Its simpler to decode https when the supplier has handed over the keys.

    4. Somewhere in your feeble mind, you have this silly notion that Heath kit routers would be a feasible plane for homeowners, and that the FCC regulations are hard on software developers.
    There are routers that exist that have a solid modules. With open hardware development these days no reason why it could not be for homeowners.

    5. You and Pogsey, are are opposite ends of the spectrum where the climate is concerned.
    I don’t have to agree with hum over everything. Its just you presuming that I do and being a idiot.

    http://watershapes.com/lessons-learned/beware-of-exploding-lava-rocks.html
    6. Geology is not your forte, as booming rocks are pure fantasy.
    No tell that to people who have died from it dougman.

    7. Then you spray Windex on your laptop like an idiot, and comically try and play if off as someone else did so.
    You have no evidence I have done computer repairs it was a common issue when plastic screen laptops come out. No you want to believe I am a idiot so you read it that way and that is not what said or what happened ever.

    8. Next, your idea of “code reuse” is safe, is pure bunk. Your analogy would make sense, if perhaps, someone “reused” your non-existent wife for sex, but you and I both know, that’s pure imagination.
    Read my post again that is not what I said and it you making stuff up. Code reuse if it safe or unsafe comes down to the auditing practices and program maintenance. I did not say it was safe in all cases did I.

    3. You continuously state that everything I post is a lie, with no evidence.
    In fact those last points all prove you are a not tell the truth or cannot read or a idiot.

    2. Next, I list for you, a string of things you have stated on this blog, but now you won’t own up to any of them, nor will you retract anything you previously stated, even when I call you on your bullshit.
    Why should I when you never do.

    1. You won’t produce a “deformation” suit, nor will you ever find a judge to produce a summons for you, as you are too stupid to file for libel.
    Rule of law never tell a person exactly what you are going charge them with until you do. So this one is kind of right.

  20. dougman says:

    Lets do a recount Ham-Dong shall we?

    6. Geology is not your forte, as booming rocks are pure fantasy. Unless you attempt to explain that away, as you do with anything else, with some idea that you can hear in infra-sound.

    7. Then you spray Windex on your laptop like an idiot, and comically try and play if off as someone else did so.

    8. Next, your idea of “code reuse” is safe, is pure bunk. Your analogy would make sense, if perhaps, someone “reused” your non-existent wife for sex, but you and I both know, that’s pure imagination.

    9. On to the NSA order. Ah yes, you won’t even discuss this one, even though I know that the NSA data-archives all telecom traffic. Https doesn’t mean squat to them. Here is a dated article about it: https://arstechnica.com/security/2015/10/how-the-nsa-can-break-trillions-of-encrypted-web-and-vpn-connections/

    Your argument is moot. As you fail to comprehend that the NSA is a code-breaking government agency, with unlimited energy and man-power.

  21. oiaohm says:

    Now next post of your better be on topic with the thread Robert started not be bothering explaining what you are posting that just proves you are idiot.

  22. oiaohm says:

    Lets discuss this NSA order? Why should the NSA send out orders, when they already collect all telecommunication traffic??
    dougman So you are keeping up the clueless. What use is the telecommunications traffic alone when is running on https. Now please answer what the request would be for now and admit you are a idiot.

  23. dougman says:

    “DuckDuckGo is US jurisdiction. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/… So NSA and others can order DuckDuckGo to include monitoring and tell no one about it.”

    Lets discuss this NSA order? Why should the NSA send out orders, when they already collect all telecommunication traffic??

  24. oiaohm says:

    dougman by the way did you even read the next post. The problem is not my english in that case its yours.

  25. oiaohm says:

    dougman go back and read the article that I was responding to and the comment makes total sense.

    Windows reuses a lot of code.<< The article says that is a bad idea. And I don't agree absolutely. So apparently you agree with my post. Would pay if you had read it on context instead of being a complete idiot. So another failure by you to find anything.

  26. dougman says:

    Elaborate on this “code reuse”, you insinuate that reusing something does not invite bugs. YOu argument makes no sense, as Windows reuses a lot of code. IN fact, when have you EVER submitted a single line of code?

    “Code reuse does not exactly invite bugs.”

    https://threatpost.com/code-reuse-a-peril-for-secure-software-development/122476/#comment-527861

  27. oiaohm says:

    Why did you spray Windex on your laptop?
    dougman learn to read they were asking for stupid ways you knew computers being stuffed. That is not that I had done it again. So another swing miss and wild guess of a idiot.

    In fact Windex on a glass screen laptop with rubber seals that some of the old green screen laptops were was perfectly harmless.

    So apparently dougman learns everything by google and totally poor reading skill.

    How long are you going to keep on getting Zero right before you get the point you are a true idiot dougman who has had what I am totally wrong.

  28. oiaohm says:

    dougman young volcanic rock contains trapped explosive gases Old volcanic rock contains air-pockets left behind where the explosive gases were. Either way heat the rock bad things happen. So again another point were I have said nothing wrong. Just you are too dumb to understand the basic reason of why.

    Global dimming? That goes against Pogsey and Global Warming you dimwit.
    Its part of the Csiro joint paper with Israel where it first comes from.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_dimming

    Global temperatures have increase water evaporation rates from evaporation pans has decreased. Add in sat data in orbit directly measuring sun output to detect solar flares.

    stephen richards idea that not based on the Csiro model. Where csiro found alignment between Global cooling and reduced evaporation that did not align with solar activity or anything else other than particles . So some particular matter is in the air causing it.

    If you lab test evaporation under control conditions you will find that rate of evaporation directly aligns light.

    There is also a massive heat spike after the 9/11 event when mass volumes of aircraft were grounded reducing particles in the air.

    If you are talking about the model of the earth and you are not considering global dimming you are over looking a key factor end of story.

    Canada warming at the moment is the EU clean air program. As the EU cars and trucks get cleaner the temperature Canada has to deal with will get higher. Because some of global warming was masked by global dimming that is no longer present. Yes Canada evaporation pan data is up this year. The data is taken on what appears to be a perfectly clear day.

    dougman so how many more times are you going to be absolutely baseless. So two more attempts and two absolutely failure to prove anything else than that you are an under researched idiot. So proven that when I have called you a moron I have been calling you what you are.

  29. dougman says:

    “Most commonly forgotten really old cooking is hot rock cooking. Find a big flat bit of rock not volcanic(or you end up hurt as rock goes boom) and use that as your cooking surface. ”

    https://campustechnology.com/articles/2017/02/13/university-hackers-attacked-5000-iot-devices-on-campus.aspx

    dougman besides at some point these insecure devices that include wifi routers and other IoT that are not getting firmware updates and end up exploited to attack networks cannot remain. Has to come to the end the network disruption they are causing is past a joke even back then I could see this.

    So here you picking on me when I mention exactly what need to happen to solve the wifi router part of problem and provide something that is security audit-able and conforms to radio regulation.

  32. oiaohm says:

    dougman sorry exactly what is wrong with my statement.

    The issue with the TP-Link is software defined radio instead of hardware define radio.

    Wifi router kit solutions have been appearing.

    https://cdn-learn.adafruit.com/downloads/pdf/setting-up-a-raspberry-pi-as-a-wifi-access-point.pdf
    Still legal under FCC even if you put all the parts in a case and sold it pre-installed with software.. Difference is you use a USA confirming hardware transmitter block and someone using it outside the USA uses a hardware transmitter block for their area. There is a standard for wifi modules that are open source supporting that can be used to-do this.

    dougman so what you quoted is not ignorance at my level. But you straight up thinking everything I write is wrong. Notice all the following posts there is not a single dispute with what I wrote.

    It’s worth mentioning that the FCC rules expressly do not prohibit 3rd party firmware, merely state that where 3rd party firmware is allowed, the radio parameters must be protected from being out of compliance with FCC regs.
    The next person state this. What exactly agrees with what I said. We need the wifi routers that we want to use open source on global to be kit. So their is the router there is the wifi modules and able to put in the wifi modules that match our radio regulators requirements.

    https://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-upgrade-your-laptops-wi-fi-card/
    How do laptops solve the same regulator limitation with Wifi. Changeable wifi cards.

    Really this is why you are joke dougman. For all the incompetence you accuses me of over and over again when you attempt to put up an example you put up something that is absolute correct that just shows you are totally incompetent.

  33. dougman says:

    NO need to admit, you openly show your ignorance on many levels.

    For example,

    Time for kit based routers. With the volume of boards like the Raspberry PI…. and wifi items that can act as AP. It should be more than possible.

    A router shipping as 3+ parts case, motherboard and wifi interfaces only the wifi interfaces would have to obey FCC rules.

    Depending on the rights to modify existing product had to come to the end at some point.

    Also FCC regulation is starting to get a little hard with how much is becoming software defined radio.

    I don’t go on blogs and post that I have Marfan Syndrome, so this gives me an advantage to picking citrus fruit.
    dougman that is what you said. I never said Marfan Syndome gave me advantage. In fact it a disadvantage to citrus picking. So this another one of you dreams.

    There are other made up lies in that older and goodie. Until you can edit it and remove all the mistakes every time you post it you are adding to the case against you.

  37. dougman says:

    I don’t go on blogs and post that I have Marfan Syndrome, so this gives me an advantage to picking citrus fruit.

    The list is endless and you are just making yourself more a fool, then you already are, which coincidentally I did not think was possible.

    dougman this post recently is not fact. Is that is a false representation. Really I don’t think you know what is the truth because you have been posting by guess work for so long its not funny.

    I am most certain, everything I ever stated was factual and to the letter.
    Sorry that is where you are sunk. The 10 years tells you the venue and tells you something worse as well.

  40. dougman says:

    “Really I only have 10 years to present you with a summons.”

    Only ten years? Will it be civil or criminal? What about venue?? Will you be filing in America or Australia. Remember, to prove libel, I have to make a statement that is false, caused harm, and was made without adequate research.

    I am most certain, everything I ever stated was factual and to the letter.

    The numbers I’ve seen are better than that but no, I was using summer driving conditions. I still don’t know what speed the quoted ~100mile range is based upon. It strongly depends on speed and headwinds. I expect it’s city driving in Vancouver which is ~40km/h average. Highway has advantages in that you can find lots of flats with a constant speed so no extra inefficiency accelerating as you have in cities. It will be fun to find out. If I were Electrameccanica I would publish a chart of range v speed on a track or something like that so range numbers would be meaningful. I guess their point is that it’s more than enough for city-driving and commuting. I’m a little eccentric being an old retired guy planning on doing a bit of highway driving with the thing. I can drive into the city for shopping/errands too but by far most of my mileage will be on the highway with a speed I can control. I usually travel at times that traffic is light too.

    Really I only have 10 years to present you with a summons. Maybe you just worked that out so that is why you are asking.

  43. dougman says:

    Pardon me, but did you ever happen to file that deformation lawsuit against me??

  44. oiaohm says:

    That wasn’t the point I was making dumbass.
    No dougman. Robort in past post have stated the expected travel will be less than 30km. He might have giving 100km figure for effectiveness did he say he would be driving 100.

    He was talking about operational costs. You took it as range he was expect so guess who is the dumbass. I stuck to what he was comparing operational cost.

  45. dougman says:

    “Can you tell me a vehicle that does 100K for 5L of gasoline. ”

    That wasn’t the point I was making dumbass.

    DERP.

  46. oiaohm says:

    Of course dougman is not doing the numbers.

    $1.6 per 100. Lets presume worse x3.
    $4.8 for 100km. or $1.6 for 33.33. kms.
    Divide by fuel price.
    http://www.globalpetrolprices.com/gasoline_prices/
    Canada is roughly a dollar a 1 L.
    So 5L of gasoline. Can you tell me a vehicle that does 100K for 5L of gasoline. Please note I mean real not sitting on a rolling road spinning it wheels and getting a rating of 5L per 100Km what is basically with no wind drag.

    So unless electricity price goes up EV on operational cost will be cost effective as long as your distance is not causing you to have to change at inconvenient or costly places even with the batteries performing badly. Of course when the weather is good results will be better.

    As long as Roberts planned trips in cold weather are short EV should not be a major problem its not going be costing more than using fuel. The savings are the warmer months.

    dougman you are basically knee jerking without doing the numbers that tell you that even 33.333. km to the charge is only starting to bring cost of EV back to that of fuel.

  47. dougman says:

    “My car-to-be goes ~100miles on 16kWh, about $1.60 worth of electricity. ”

    You are failing to realize, you may only get 40-miles out of your EV in cold-weather.

  48. dougman wrote, of charging an EV at an EV-charging station, “Stealing electric is thievery; someone will likely report on you.”

    I’m new to EVs of course. I still don’t own one but there are lots of businesses, organizations, and governments who do supply EV-charging stations:

    • Red River Community College makes one available for $free for research into EV technology.
    • Sinclair Park Community Centre in Winnipeg tries to be helpful letting anyone draw power if their EV can connect to NEMA L14-30 sockets
    • Peavey Mart is cool. No questions asked.
    • One small business in Winnipeg set up a couple of stations just because it’s the right thing to do…
    • My own garage is wired for 15A @ 120 VAC and 50A @ 240 VAC. This is where I would do most of my charging for the local trips.

    There are some that make charging available to customers only but there are a lot of public stations. I don’t know of many that charge for the service directly as the actual value of the energy is quite small. My car-to-be goes ~100miles on 16kWh, about $1.60 worth of electricity. What’s the cost of accounting for such a transaction? Would I use a station that charges $10 or so to use it? Not unless I was desperate and various websites make that unlikely.

  49. dougman says:

    “I feel awkward charging up at a hotel (Days Inn, Winkler) and not staying the night”

    Stealing electric is thievery; someone will likely report on you.
