    Yeah, except if you start your journey on the correct day... then you can finish on the following day with a Flexpreis ticket.

    You can still hope for an Aufhebung der Zugbindung if yours is delayed or cancelled. Depending on what train, when, and where there can be quite a decent probability: https://media.ccc.de/v/36c3-10652-bahnmining_-_punktlichkeit_ist_eine_zier

    Fuel? Where we’re going, we won’t need fuel! ==>NooDle’s eGolf

    There's a nit to pick :D Electric heating is 100% efficient, all the incoming energy is converted into heat... the confusion comes from ICE drivetrains being so inefficient, and thereby providing so much waste heat from propulsion. In other words, to move a BEV you need much less energy in the...

    Mazda: "Big battery EVs are not as clean as people think"

    The chart mentions "2016 European average", which does contain some renewable electricity generation, and a lot of nuclear too.

    Ireland considering legislation to ban all new petrol and diesel car sales by 2030.

    The furthest A-B trip in Ireland is about 8h / 600km, the furthest A-B trip between two places with at least 10000 population is about 450km, for 25k or more pairs it's 337km, 50k or more it's 259km. Seems like an ideal place for BEVs.

    Fuel? Where we’re going, we won’t need fuel! ==>NooDle’s eGolf

    The current flowing through a voltmeter is negligible. If you attach a 10MΩ voltmeter to a 400V car battery you get a 40µA current.

    Fuel? Where we’re going, we won’t need fuel! ==>NooDle’s eGolf

    An amp clamp won't tell you anything useful - when the car is neither moving nor charging there are no meaningful currents flowing, but the wires could still kill you.

    The 'I don't like Tesla' Thread

    Our boat storage has bigger plugs available, iirc up to 230V 3x63A, but our boat only takes the blue three pin single phase 230V 16A plug :dunno:

    The 'I don't like Tesla' Thread

    Just park where they store the boats for winter, you'll find shore power outlets there too... at least over here. Usually it's 230V 16A single phase though :shakefist:

    The 'I don't like Tesla' Thread

    Yup. In an ICE car, going very slow is hugely inefficient in terms of mpg because the ICE has significant overhead at very low power outputs. In an electric car, no matter if BEV or FCEV, going very slow is highly efficient because the electric motor is very efficient at low power outputs. For...

    Ownership Verified: My '19 2002 turbo

    The sprinklers left an ugly layer of grime on the car, so free wash it is 🤩 shiny car is shiny again. Plot twist, the wheel just made it back to Düsseldorf last week. Apparently BMW Kiel failed to mail it :shakefist: I should have just kept it and sold myself, instead of complaining to get...

    Energy production, storage, and future technologies

    Even in the high desert temperatures don't go from "it's too hot, we're boiling all the water!" to "it's too cold, we're freezing all the water!" in an instant :roll: Do you have figures on how much water is consumed, compared to other forms of electricity generation?

    Setting underground oil fields on fire sounds like a great idea.
