In reality I make huge savings over those pesky Gasoline cars.

If not massive always have , for a high at one point I was paying 3 cents more a liter , usually its within cents per liter either way.


Currently Fuel prices at the Co-op in my city

Unleaded - 1.46 liter (yesterday)
Diesel - 1.32 liter (yesterday)


Im enjoying some pretty good fuel prices right now compared to gas vehicles.

Years ago, Diesel was much cheaper than gas here. It is not that way in the USA any longer.

My latest kick is I built and have been riding a ebike to run errands grocery shopping etc its been fun and good exercise as you have to pedal on hills and I like to pedal the bike up to 38kmh before hitting the throttle. The 48v 12AH battery costs 5 cents to charge and will carry me around 60 km

I know I said I'd leave it alone but just can't help it. The manufactures are just making it too easy.
