    I would have one if it was not for the price. But then so are many other vehicle possibilities.

    Fortunately, I got it for one Bitcoin that I originally paid about $3500 for.

    I dont want this to to turn all political, and i know you didnt buy it to go green, but i will say, from what i understand, economically, one of those things would be an excellent choice as far as on your wallet.

    They cost next to nothing when you compare them to most modern or old cars in terms of energy/fuel consumption.

    You'll have to let us know how it goes.

    Nice bro. I am a big bitcoin believer (I develop software on top of bitcoin) so great to hear success stories. I bought my s5 with bitcoin money before bitcoin tanked in 2017 so I got my "lambo" out of the way.

    Also I have a cybertruck on order so no hate from me on Tesla. Though I'm probably just going to try to flip it.

    Good for you! @Frankenchevy! I installed my own Enphase 7k solar system so all I need is the charging station once I do that I'll be going that route, Also.

    They get roughly 4.7 miles/kWh. A kilowatt hour on an EV plan from my power company costs 14.6 cents. It’ll be much cheaper than the $500/mo I e been spending on fuel in a truck.

    Not to derail the thread but I would be interested to hear more about this. I looked at the Solar City roof and it was like $120k base cost, yep nope.

    Oh, I thought you meant you were going to start wearing a pocket protector along with a pocket calculator!! :anitoof: My son has been toying around with building his own electric using a 63 Impala as his base. He's already built himself an electric go-cart. Also has a company building the bit coin miners.

    ugh, 14.6 cents is ridiculous... I'm at about 7.5 cents/kWh in Oregon. We also have a bunch of charging stations and superchargers getting put in all over the place. We can't really do solar up here, but the electricity is so cheap you really don't need it.

    We are currently at 24.3 cents per kWh on a non-EV plan. To clarify, we only get the 14.5-14.7 rate from 9pm to 7 am...
