    The average vehicle in America is over 11 years old. Most people will be driving an ICE vehicle in ten years, and it wonít even be close.

    People are still bitching about cash for clunkers. I like the idea of going EV but the smart money move is still looking like a reliable ICE thatíll go for a decade+.
    focus.

    Same. Last fall I grabbed a new 21 tundra and while I cringe at the pump, Iíve put old truck problems behind me and hopefully have taken broke down truck out of the equation for a bunch of years. Also given my use-case, the 38 gallon tank is much more applicable to me than current EV range.

    I think that's just GM doing that. There's always 3rd party warranties.

    Care to show your work? Because the only way that checks out is if the cost of gas plummets or you buy a very cheap efficient used ice that you drive for 10 years.

    Havenít really penciled it, admittedly, but Iím not finding AWD options that comfortably get me 250 miles of range in sub-freezing temps for less than $50k used, and even at that itís a bit of a stretch and I have doubts that my range will hold up over ten years. And thatís what I need to feed the ski and bike habit on a weekly basis (during mid-winter). Easy enough to find a reliable ICE for $20k thatíll do the same. Can I make up $30k in 10 years with increased efficiency and lower maintenance costs? MaybeÖ. Should do the math, I guess, but I has a skepticism.

    Now, Iíll probably not take the most practical and economical option when I buy my next car, because that isnít fun, which puts EV in play. Iím just pointing out that ICE isnít going away immediately outside of some substantial intervention by the same things you mention.

    Saw the f150 lightning in person today. Nice looking truck. 2 downsides I noticed, bed liner was a cheap plastic insert instead of spray in and touch screen is absolutely massive.

    I'd definitely go for a LineX bedliner over any of the drop in or factory spray in options - it's burlier. F150 Lighting is really cool - also curious about the new Chevy that's coming next year.

    Iíve worked with hydrogen before, and seen it blow up. Iím not going to have it in my car or house. No matter what the car salesman says, or what the green progressive media says, or what the State of Oregon says, hydrogen will always leak and it will eventually blow up. But it will take a few catastrophic explosions before the public wises up to hydrogenís nature.

    They were filming a commercial for the electric Silverado here a couple weeks ago. You can get it in blue- I know that much.

    Ford offers a bed liner or a spray-in liner (or at least those were the options on my truck). The spray-in liner is burley. Not sure what sort of asshole gets the plastic liner, or why.

    Have also worked on Hydrogen for yearsÖstorage, fueling, etc. tech has come a long way, and so has safety engineering.

    That said, no way it makes sense for light duty vehicles. Boats/planes/heavy duty trucks? Maybe. Grid storage and demand response? Definitely

    flow batteries with swappable liquid electrolyte appear more feasible, as do the ability to push fast charging tech.

    Yes, behind fences and handled by trained professionals hydrogen makes sense. But in the publicís hands, itís a recipe for disaster.

    Can the same arguments be made for gasoline?
