    Huge mistake for PG&E.

    They are doing a combination of kneeling to the safety Nazis and engaging in some vindictive compliance.

    But what they have really done is waste money, created a whole bunch of new liabilities, admitted guilt, and generated enough bad blood for the communists to “nationalize” them.

    Brilliant!

    Gas doesn't pump without electric power.. either.
    Everybody is $hit out of luck if they were not prepared..
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Petroleum price gouging is a sacred tradition in Kalifornia. Don’t you believe in capitalism?

    True enough...in the short term you can't carry a Jerry can of electrons though.

    And you can run an ICE vehicle on a wood gasifier if it came down to it.

    I know you're a fan of the electrics, and there are some upsides no doubt.

    I'm in the process of burning 3 y/o ethanol fuel out of the '56, stinks to high heaven!

    It would certainly clog injectors and plug catalytic converters..

    Cleaning a glass float bowl and running a piece of .030 wire through the one barrels jet is painless...

    And gas engines won't run without a constant supply of Gas..

    Which some of you think can't be cut off regardless of how dependent on it you are.

    Watch what happens when the Straits are closed...


    I'm looking at alternatives...

    Veggie oil and mechanical injectors is the best bet.

    Also good.. around a neighborhood with the resources..

    I am thinking of a Motorhome conversion... with a generator for Hybrid mode.. Could get a couple hundred miles on batteries alone.
    And Charge as you go is way more efficient use of Fuel.

    Drawback is the initial set up.. Batteries are still too Pricey. Though the tech makes them doable.

    Hemp Batteries and Supercaps may be a game changer....and I am watching that.
