Curious these last few days...Solar City is in the city next to mine

Across the street from a car wash I use

In the old days, cars and trucks were parked everywhere...on their lawn, around both corners, etc

Then empty after Tesla bought them out (Tusk saving his cousins)

Today there were lots of cars coming abd going, but no trucks

Curious timing...


-Ben Picture of my rig
1996 GMC SLT Suburban 3/4 ton K3500/7.4L/4:1/+150Kmiles orig owner...
1980 Chevy Silverado C10/long bed/"BUILT" 5.7L/3:73/1 ton helper springs/+329Kmiles, bought it from dad...
1998 Mazda B2500 (1/2 ton) pickup, 2nd owner...
Praise Dyno Brake equiped and all have "nose bleed" braking!
Previous trucks/offroaders: 40's Jeep restored in mid 60's / 69 DuneBuggy (approx +1K lb: VW pan/200hpCorvair: eng, cam, dual carb'w velocity stacks'n 18" runners, 4spd transaxle) made myself from ground up / 1970 Toyota FJ40 / 1973 K5 Blazer (2dr Tahoe, 1 ton axles front/rear, +255K miles when sold it)...

Your number sounded way high... Luckily Google helped me out [emoticon]

while the number is somewhat misleading it's mostly accurate and surprised me.

Vehicular fire data

One of the differences, When a Tesla catches on fire, it's very difficult to put the fire out. Fire dept are generally not equipped to deal with a battery fire. We had a battery pack being transported in the detroit area. They had to drive a fire truck from the airport approximately 30 miles to the fire to put it out.

Bateries will improve and become less or totaly fire resistant I have no doubt

Tesla model 3 has improved bat pack and none has caught fire yet

Maybe because they didn't burn down seven WalMarts?

I havent seen any WM burned down from those Solar panels

but with over hundred ICE car crashes a day Im guessing plenty of people got cooked rather nasty.
Yeah, weird, I've never seen any ICE vehicles on fire. So you don't believe the Walmart fires but do believe the ICE fires? So that means you've seen lots of ICE fires? Or just parroting statistics from the wide wobbly web?

I was a firefighter for 32 years. Saw many, many ICE vehicle fires in that time from mechanical malfunctions to arson. Fatalities? 2, from a high speed rear end crash impact. US Vehicle Fire Stats

This is only for a 3 year period from 2014-16. Not a professional numbers cruncher, but I have to call BS on your every 3 minute claim internet claim.
But,thanks for playing fan boi...........

Check your math. The link you provide proves the point on vehicle fires.

171,000 annual / 365 = 468 per day
468 / 24 = 20 per hour
20 per hour is one every 3 minutes

Gotta pu this in proper perspective.
How many ICE autos are out there?

One every 3 min, probably isn't bad.

Yes and the other perspective is how many flame out due to a crash and how many self combust just driving normal.

The roof panels are just self combusting afaik.
