that and the last and final statment sums it up. "Our experts say using a diesel charging pod to power an electric vehicle is just like driving a diesel vehicle. It defeats the purpose of going green."

Evidently, a nerve was struck and panic ensued.....

Just use the magic electric portal in the wall and all is good.

According to the article, that's not always a viable option when traveling across the Nullarbor Plain:
"However, these trips have not been without challenges, because while some very bright sparks in the EV community have organised three-phase power outlets to charge EVs at remote locations such as roadhouses, phases are not always in balance due to diesel generator age and capacity, nor the points always accessible."

Looks like he's continuing to explore options:

Who brings the diesel? oh yeah a big truck full of diesel running on diesel to charge the electric cars remotely.

It's all good, move along.

I didn't see the article get into specifics about sourcing and transporting the diesel, if you find out the details I'd love to read them!

My posts on this topic have been neutral and I'm simply sharing more information for those who would like to read it. If one wants to get their information only from memes, that's cool too .

I get that, but if you have a remote diesel generator it needs fuel. So unless they are running pipes all over the remote country side a truck is bringing it.

Mustang Mach E GT Performance Edition 03
Mustang Mach-E GT Performance Edition. Ford



Roughly 20% of electric vehicle owners in California replaced their cars with gas ones, a study shows.

The main reason drivers said they made the switch was the inconvenience of charging.

The findings suggest new challenges facing the growth of the nascent electric vehicle market.

See more stories on Insider's business page.

In roughly three minutes, you can fill the gas tank of a Ford Mustang and have enough range to go about 300 miles with its V8 engine.

But on a recent 200-mile trip from Boston to New York in the Mustang's electric Mach-E variant, Axios' Dan Primack said he felt "panic" as his battery level dipped below 23% while searching for a compatible charger to complete his trip.

"I was assured that this might be one of the country's easiest EV routes," Primack wrote. "Those assurances were misplaced."

For Bloomberg automotive analyst Kevin Tynan, an hour plugged into his household outlet gave the Mach-E just three miles of range.

"Overnight, we're looking at 36 miles of range," he told Insider. "Before I gave it back to Ford, because I wanted to give it back full, I drove it to the office and plugged in at the charger we have there."

Standard home outlets generally deliver 120 volts, powering what electric vehicle aficionados call "Level 1" charging, while the higher-powered specialty connections at 240 volts are known as "Level 2." By comparison, Tesla's "Superchargers," which can fully charge its cars in a little over an hour, run on 480 volts.

That difference is night and day, according to a new study published in the journal Nature Energy by University of California Davis researchers Scott Hardman and Gil Tal that surveyed Californians who purchased an electric vehicle between 2012 and 2018.

Memes, winos, magic eightballs...
Any of those are better than lefty sources or propaganda media.
