not really. you're just moving the emissions from tailpipe emissions to elsewhere.

if your vehicle isn't plugged in during a sunny and/or windy day, that electricity has to be generated somewhere.
if you plug in at night and it isn't windy, it has to come from somewhere.
if you store it in batteries, those batteries have limited lifespan, and making those batteries is not without impact to the environment.

one of the biggest problems with mass adoption of electric cars is that the grid is not going to be able to handle it, especially in the summer in many climates.

long tailpipe hypothesis is mostly bullshit

for everything else, emissions wise, EVs shit all over em

Actually, one could argue the Garand and AK are identical with the following sentence tacked on.

>>18365134
Dude.
You’re trying to convince me that the roller delayed blowback rifles A La G3s were meant to be disposable and are therefore fucking awful.

Any and all credit you have was flung out the window with that sentence.
I simply assumed you were joking around because of the Bren comment and decided to give you the benefit of the doubt.

+3 titles.
+ Fucking skilled driver with great rivals (Prost, Piquet, Mansell) from a very different time in F1.
+ Fucked bitchs & models.
+ Got his own videogames with Sega.
+ Respected in Europe, popular among nips and beloved among hues.
+ Tragic death, died like a hero, presidential-tier funneral.
+ Tons of news, movie, documentary.
+ Family carry a philantropy institute.
+ Many figures and statues.

>Well okay to be fair it went both ways
Not really. Purposely detuning the engine for one of your drivers so that the other one has a better chance at beating him is both unethical and unprofessional. It doesn't matter how much you favor one driver over the other.

The fact that Senna needed more power to even match Prost driving the same car says a lot about how Prost was the more skilled driver.

Gonna buy a 986 boxster or a c5 corvette, can't really decide between the two

First time driving anything really, so it's technically my first car. The boxster is a bit more affordable for me, but the corvette just seems so much more fun.

Thoughts?

Dude chicks don't know anything or care about cars. You can get an automatic v6 SN96 Mustang and they will think it's the same as a vette.

Also if 11k is your whole budget you should get something cheaper in nicer shape and save a bit to spend it on maintenance later.

Alright if you're considering a boxster. Look at the Honda S2K. Girls love that car because of 2F2F. But otherwise the answer is always corvette.

Corvette destroys the boxster. Even the modern base corvette destroys the modern Porsche Cayman.

Meh... if I were more serious about it I could find the owner through my work. It's more or less a curiosity as to why its sitting around.

As far as WVO goes it's mostly underground here because the state is upset over lost fuel taxes. The PO down in Pitt has agreements with 2 or 3 local restaurants to take their oil for free. He had more oil than he knew what to do with and would use it to heat his house in the winter too. When the time comes there are 4 restaurants within walking distance from my house. I could probably score a similar deal. But I have other things to think about before a WVO setup though...
>>
>>18365182
Usable vegetable oil can be worth it if you can store 2000 litres of it at a time and store that. It gets to around 0.7 dollars per litre. So $2.64 canadian dollars per american gallon. That's around 2.05 US per litre IF you were in the US. You can probably find something much cheaper in the states.

It's also much less hazardous to store. If you want to run in the winter, you would have to do that heated dual fuel tank which isn't that bad. That'll extend the life of your injectors and everything, too.

VO is better than WVO,. of course. But just something worth it only if you like autistic engineering...
>>
>>18365194
A 2nd fuel tank would come in handy. There's more than enough room underneath for a 2nd or 3rd fuel tank...

1st things first though, I'd need a bigger place to store more cars and thousands of liters of WVO...

There is zero reason to buy a diesel in 2017 compared to a gasoline engine.

parts cost alot more, labor is MUCH higher, engines are generally more complicated, and emissions equipment are insanely complicated and fragile.

there is no new diesel engines that have a genuine advantage over gasoline except for extreme towing situations, even then i would rather have a gasoline vehicle.

Picking up my new baiku today, had an early night last night. Classic 80s martial arts movie, a drink, and slowly losing heat due to it being winter, Went to be when the booze made me sleepy.

I don't know anything about the S12, I just realized they are way cheaper that other 80's coupes, and I may be able to buy a S12 shitbox. What's wrong compared to the S13, or the other 80's sport cars ? Are they also affected by the drift tax ?

> I just realized they are way cheaper that other 80's coupes, and I may be able to buy a S12 shitbox

gee i wonder why

>What's wrong compared to the S13, or the other 80's sport cars?
S12 is pigfat and has very little aftermarket support. esp compared to the S13/S14/S15

>Are they also affected by the drift tax ?

no because most people don't give a flying fuck about them.

That being said its entirely possible to turn them into a drift car, I hope you have money tho. With the money spent on turning it into a drift car you can have a much better car.

but if you just want it for a beater or maybe even a daily thats fine I guess. its still a 30 y/o car tho

I enjoyed it a great deal. Their banter is back on form.

I don’t have the sticky for these.
I also don’t usually start threads for generals.
But I need somewhere to complain.

FUUUUUUUUUUUUCK, I JUST FOUND SOME SHIT OUT.
So i’ve Had my car for around three months now.
My shitty old Toyota Sienna never got the coolant changed or checked except for when it got oil changes, which, being the /o/ equivalent of a normie, I had the dealership take care of.

Well, now that i’ve Got the falcon, I find out that coolant is a monthly (minimum) thing that I have to check.
Why?
Because it started running hotter than usual.
I had been misreading the cap as 240 when it was actually hovering right at 190-200.
Not good, but not horrible either.
Well, I took her out to go see Christmas lights with my family earlier, and then came back home. I checked the cap itself on a whim because I know that the electrical readout is BS and I was just feeling a little suspicious.
It was ACTUALLY 240.

I've bought nearly restored cars; it's fun to drive them, but you still want to make changes.

Instead, I've learned that the best thing you can do is buy a car with a solid body and decent interior. I now pay people to fix the wiring and do all my favorite mechanical upgrades and customization.
