    Good price on the repair but you got raped on shipping even considering you had to pay two directions.

    I think civilization is collapsing. Postage and shipping are early symtoms. Ordered a...

    Mere mortal consumers do not "service" automatic transmissions at all. Don't change the fluid. Don't replace the filter. Don't replace the bands. So what is your hangup about a "belt" which is closer...

    Early designs with O2 sensors will run richer than ideal being fooled by the oxygen content in the ethanol. Newer designs only use the O2 sensor as a calibration reference and as such will run a...

    Lets see, he thinks the throttle bodies are dirty so he blames E10?

    While water will remove ethanol it will not remove all. And then what you end up with is gasoline with ethanol saturated with...

    The author takes every false narrative and runs with it.

    I have said before and will say again, "The gas station model does not apply to EVs." This guy perpetuates the ignorance in insisting an EV...

    I know it is hard to believe that ICE things don't extend to EV things, but the EPA consumption ratings for EVs is very reasonable and reproducible.

    An ADV is the SUV of the motorcycle world. Perhaps most will never see an unpaved road but it returns motorcycling to a less-extreme riding position. Not feet-forward. Not lay-down over the gas tank....

    Why would you “need to charge” in only 20 miles? Or 40 round trip?

    The reason you sometimes buy “petrol” is that you can’t fill the tank at home.

    C&D spin conveniently forgets the miracle the EVs could do the trip at all.

    One further clarification on AKI: the numbers mix linearly. 1 unit of 87 AKI plus 1 unit of 93 AKI results in 2 units of 90 AKI.
