Re: What is your attitudes and preferences toward EVs?

Is this like the Fakebook surveys that mine your personal data? Or a virus?

Re: Ohio EV tax

I am retired and, on average, drive 2000 miles a year. For an ICE vehicle: 2000 miles divided by 30 mpg = 66,6 times $.387 per gallon tax = $25.77 annual state tax

Re: Ohio EV tax

Please reread my original post, The $200 tax is only for EVs, not ICE vehicles. The state gas tax will increase by 10 cents per gallon over 2 years. If I owned an ICE vehicle that achieved 30mpg, my state gas tax would be a total of $26 a year for my current annual mileage. So $200 a year is rather ...

"Yes, i kept one each. Costco put them in nice giant plastic bag so it was easier to bring it back home and now they are eating my attic space. Hope to never have to use them." I hope you have a climate controlled attic. Even in Ohio, my attic becomes extremely hot in the summer. Exposure ...
