Mebbie some of the vitriol is due to the guys that can afford a Tesla are the ones getting a tax break to buy it with MY taxes! And then they are avoiding road use taxes that my I.C. car is paying for the road repairs that they are driving on!
I am seriously thinking of going 100% alcohol in my Turbo Coupe so I can get a cloudy blue/white license plate for 10% of what I am paying now, AND have UNRESTRICTED USE of the carpool lanes, AND no road use taxes too!
I ran 2 propane carbs on my 8/71 blown bbc Nova until the plate was pulled for
"intent to circumvent a smog law."
At least on the Buick, it won't be as obvious, and I can get away with it, but that won't be as fun as the " in your face 9 sec blown Nova with no hood!"
P.S. a separate electric meter for all charging stations, either home or public units with a road use tax surcharge would go a long way toward making the "greenies" pay their fair share, along with doing away with ALL subsidies. As if the dems would ever go for that!
