any help out there thank you
I agree it is curious that auto mfrs all say all electric is the future when no one but Tesla can entice more than a few people to buy electric. I wonder if the key is high performance electric vehicles.
400 plus mile range would raise the bar (by a big leap) but that is going to mean a bigger battery (as I don't see any new technologies out there that would extend the present chemistry). And if you take away Tesla, the actual number of electric-only sales are declining, so even though GM must move forward to meet the futures electric needs, they (electric demand) isn't exactly forthcoming. I'm also predicting that Tesla has 'shot most of its load' and they may also be in trouble again soon. The new Y model is just a CUV Model 3 and I think that the Tesla backorders are close to being caught up and new orders are beginning to wain. Unless legislated, like China, I don't see the electric market to take any leaps soon. Just some miscellaneous ramblings.
I live in Terre Haute, IN. Do you know much about 4.5 Liter engine? I have a 1988 Fleetwood (FWD)... I am needing to find someone to do some work on it.
