RE: MotorTrend F150 Lightning Tow Test

Ford will be soon switching over to Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries. Here's some pro's and con's. Pros: Cost much less than lithium ion because they don't use exotic materials. ~10-15% BOM savings for Ford The iron and phosphate are some of the most abundant materials on the planet Provides 2-4 longer lifespan compared to lithium ion Not a fire hazard (Big plus for Ford right now) No charging rules. You can charge to 100% and drain to 0% with no ill effects Cons: As of now the energy density is 50% lower than lithium ion. Could be on par with lithium ion in the future. Vehicles using iron phosphate batteries are typically heavier due to needing more cells to make up for the lack of battery density Link My Bluetti EB55/PV200 Solar Generator kit uses LFP batteries .

One of the most severe concerns for oil patch workers, contractors and consultants is the risk of facing fires and explosions. There are about 100 oil rig fires every year in the U.S. or about one every three days. Possible Explosion Causes Injuries at Texas Oil Refinery

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/52268502615_6bc7ddd934_c.jpg Dangers of Oil Refineries to Workers and Nearby Residents Oil refineries house combustible chemicals. They must store these chemicals properly. Otherwise, refinery chemicals can cause fires and explosions that result in accidents, injuries, and fatalities. Also, some refinery chemicals are highly acidic. They should not come into contact with the skin. Refineries can release benzene, xylene, and other hazardous chemicals. These chemicals can cause serious breathing issues and other chronic health problems if inhaled. Moreover, refineries are leading sources of nitrogen oxide, carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, and sulfur dioxide. These pollutants can endanger refinery workers and the environment. Refineries are responsible for providing workers with appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE). They must operate per federal, state, and local health and safety requirements.

https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/52263123201_ce1bb37338_c.jpg So far this year, more than 200,000 motorists nationwide have been stranded on the side of the road, AAA said. During the same period last year — when the price of a gallon of gas was around $3 — just 154,000 motorists reported running out of gas. $5 for a gallon of gas sparks surge in drivers who run out of fuel

RE: MotorTrend F150 Lightning Tow Test

Did you read the article? Sure did. I fact let me quote the very first line: Tesla has told users in Texas not to charge their cars during a heat wave Well, if you had read beyond the first line you would have seen "ERCOT recommends that people in Texas avoid running appliances between 2pm and 8pm." In case that isn't clear, EVs were in the same boat as washing machines and dishwashers. So Tesla stepped up, encouraged their owners to charge off peak and gave discounts to do so. Whirlpool might have done the same if they were as well connected to their customers. You mentioned "Tusk" three times. Have no idea what that is.:h FWIW,I agree with you that there is little point in discussing this truck on an RV forum. I doubt any buyers are planning to pull trailers. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/52262713131_7fabf84108_c.jpg video Tesla is planning a big Megapack project at Gigafactory Texas to avoid unreliable electric grid

RE: MotorTrend F150 Lightning Tow Test

Tesla best come out with their space age, pickup truck (IMO ugly) soon or they may become an also ran. Same with the OTR truck. After a while you gotta deliver. All the delays allow competitors to catch up or surpass. Tesla an also ran ? Who on this list will catch up or surpass Tesla ? https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/52260976823_3bbd2bd881_c.jpg

RE: Camping in an EV.... Always charging...

I have two E bikes that I solar charge and next year I plan on selling my 2017 Chevy Sonic with 4 cyl. turbo and 6 speed manual and convert my 29+ mountain bike into a fast 72v E bike with large battery. I could use my van or my wife's Honda Fit that she might upgrade to a 2023 Chevy Bolt EUV next year if the price is great after the $4K NJ EV and $7,500 Federal EV subsidy. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/52258320921_daee7a386b_c.jpg $7500 subsidy for Tesla & GM EVs returns

RE: Camping in an EV.... Always charging...

Notice that nobody is giving "free" gas to attract customers. Enjoy the party while you can. Once everyone is forced into electric the true cost will be PAID. You bring up an interesting point. There is a guy at work that drives his electric vehicle in and plugs it in during the day while he is working. Not sure how much of a charge he can get in a 10 hour day. If I were to come in and siphon an equal amount of gas out of one of our work vehicles each day, I'd be charged with theft and fired. Yet the bosses apparently let him charge his car for "free" (its a government building, so the taxpayers are paying for the electricity AND the gas). Its a crazy world we live in. Oh yea, the largest supplier of electricity in my area is a coal plant. I'd venture a guess that my car greats cleaner energy than the coal plant that's charging his electric car... "Electricity from solar is cheaper than sourcing it from coal-fired power plants, according to a new article published in the journal Energy and Environmental Materials." The US could save $5.6B a year if it switched from coal to solar – study
