Ever Run Out of Gas? I have a few times. If one has a 1, 2 or 5 Gallon Can of Gas in Trunk or Strapped to Back Door, One Would Crack Open Gas Cap; Pour in da 'Juice' and Continue on Ones Way.

I've Walked 4 Hours for Help 'cause of No Back Up Gas Can.

As An Electric Vehicle Runs OUT of 'Juice', What is One to Do?

People Wizzing by with Cans of Gas or a Hose to Syphon {although Most Cars Now won't allow a tube to reach down to tank?} You be Good to Go if One Stopped to 'Help'.

I've Heard NO TALK/Discussion 'bout da Electric Car Age and One 'Running' out of 'Juice' aka Electrons.

A Person would have to Carry with them a Small GAS POWERED Generator with Appropriate 'Connection' 'Plug' to 'Juice Up' and Continue on Ones Way.

Or SomeOne Would have to Stop and Help - If They Had APPROPRIATE Needs as Stated - and Get You
On your Way.

Or Electric Cars Can Carry 'Juicing Cables' which would Connect from Their Car to Yours. But this would
Severely 'Drain' Their Own Batteries and They May End Up STRANDED.
Or Electric Cars will have to Be Equipped with GAS Generators which 'KIck' In and Provide Needed Electrons. How IRONIC: GAS still Needed. Rolling Man, Rolling.

Not Everyone will Want a Hybrid. Certainly GREENIEs Don't want ANY GAS ANYWHERE Being Used.

Having Same Type 'Plugs' would Definitely be Needed on Both Vehicles.

So, One Runs Out of 'Juice' and Is STRANDED.

Will There Be Help? Besides Calling a 'Service' to Come Out from SomeWhere to 'CHARGE' YOU?

I haven't Heard Any Talk from The Industry 'bout This.

Certainly, This has been THOUGHT OUT by da Brainiacs of da Industry.

I can see da News Stories Now 'bout ALL The STRANDED Electric Vehicles.

Or Not.

Ever Run Out of Gas?
Nope. Never. Do planes run out of gas? Ever stop to think why? Oh, thinking, that's why. Think to check how far you can go and how far the destination is. Then do subtraction. I know, thinking about the future is very hard for some. Some want an unchanging world where there is no need to think about the future.

Consider that, if you have a brain that you allow to function.

No.
And all the electric cars I have been in or seen have GPS and when it's getting low on charge will give you directions to the nearest charging point.

And if you are going on a long journey and use the GPS to plan your route it will show you suggestions to change route to get to the best charging points.

Ah, another thoughtless thread for my thesis on the rock solid brain.

It just goes to prove that it's only the thoughtless who run out of juice (no matter what fuel you rely on).

BTW, with electric vehicles that run out of juice because of their thoughtless owners, most road service vehicles these days have a quick charger in them to get enough juice back into the battery to get them to the nearest charging station (just like they do with the liquid stuff). ;-)

And if you are going somewhere where you might think you could run out of juice. You can always buy a "portable power station" that can be charged from "foldable solar panels" and/or "portable wind generators". And then you can fill up for free even if it takes a few hours.

PERFECT People have Weighed In.

Let's Hear from REAL People.

If EVERYONE had a Functioning Brain, Person Behind dA Wheel in WI the Other Day and Left Dead, dying, and Injured CRUMPLED Up on da Road - Would NOT have happened.

How will Someone Stranded in Electric Vehicle Call a Service if Their Phone Ran Out of Juice and they Don't have a Cord to Connect to ......

Some People Can't Afford a Cell Phone. I Guess a Law will be passed Where NO PHONE NO DRIVE. eh?

Shall I Go On?

It Is Going to Happen. A Lot.

I Know. No Buying Car. No Owning Car. No Driving Car UNLESS a Person Passes a FULLY FUNCTIONING Brain Test.

Let's See. My 1st Ex Working da Midnight Shift. Don' t remember why I stopped by Her Work, but as I was Walking past her car
I noticed a Stream of Liquid flowing out from Underneath.

Under Car I see a stream of Gas coming out a hole in bottom of gas tank. Yep Gas.

Being a Non-Functional Brain Person, I Quickly Cobbled together a metal screw; Screwdriver and a piece of 'rubber' which would not be
affected by gas. I installed this into leaking GAS hole and Leak Stopped.

Saving a tank from Emptying; resultant loss of dough and Non-Starting Car.

Neither Me or my Ex were PERFECT and SHAT would happen to US UNPERFECT People.

Something Like SHAT Happens. At Least to The NON Perfect Ones.

So, I'm Making an IMPERFECT Guess; Assumption; Prediction; WHATEVER - Dat 'JUICELESS' Electric Vehicles will Become
STRANDED and Weeee da WEEEEEE of SHAT HAPPENSville will Somehow Cope.

By da By. Dat 'FIX' lasted a LONG Time. Later a More 'PERFECT' Fix was Done.

Yep

If you put "conspiracy theory patterns" into your favourite search engine you will get hundreds of psychology papers.

Knowing a couple of people with electric cars & vans.....
When they had ICE engines they could predict quite accurately how far a tank of fuels would take them and still have a sensible reserve and didn't run out.
But now they are having to build in much bigger reserves as the range is dependant on so much beyond just miles covered - they've found even heavy rain knocks a fair chunk off!!! And then there's the recharge planning, they have to assume that over a third of the recharge points aren't available for one reason or other, then there's the time to charge, great if you have a Tesla, but some others (the vans......) it really does eat into the day.
The guys doing long haul work with the vans are now reconsidering their options for their replacement vehicles, but those on short (round town) work are almost set on not going back to ICE any day soon.

And if the delivery drivers are like those for DPD, Amazon etc. then get out the winter woollies because you will not be able to run the cabin heater, because that will take another third off your mileage.

Oh Yeah. Forgot to Mention. I've Run Out of GAS with My Motorcycle a few times.

The Walk to a Gas Station was Not too Long. One Bolt and Tank is off. Can't remember if I did or found a Can or something
along da Road and filled dat.

Hey, was Stranded once in California late at night cause My Essentially Brand New Van had Alternator Go Bad. Somehow I got it
started again - this was 48 years ago - Drove to Dealership I bought it from and got in Back and went to sleep till place opened.
{It was 2 am or so) Fixed by Warranty and Back to my IMPERFECT Life.

Oh and then a Belt can Bust and Alternator stops charging Battery.

I Know. I know. All my Stupid UNPREPARED IMPERFECT NON-Functional Brain Self.

Yep

Man O LIve. Remembered Another One. This is a GOoDie.

I was Goin' Across da Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel from Newport News to Norfolk where I worked and a little ways in My 280ZX
COMPLETELY STOPPED Running and I Coasted to Bottom of Tunnel.

Geez O Flip. Of Course it would Not Start.

Back Up Behind Me Started. Morning Time Rush Hour ya know. Cussing I could NOT Hear must of Been Intense. heeeheeeheee

They have Cameras of course and 5 minutes or so later they had me Towed out and In Their Parking Lot.

So, I'm in Their Parking Lot for an Hour or more Working on It and Somehow Got it Started Again

A Little Later while Working On it to Find Problem - Found Problem - Bought Part - Replaced Part - Started and Went my Way.

Believe it was an Alternator AGAIN -this was 'bout 13 Years since da KALI INCIDENT.

Man O LIve.

Life. It's a GOoDin

POINT IS: ELECTRIC VEHICLEs Will .......well...We will All See.

Don't forget the RV's & Caravans.
Wonder if the manufacturers have cottoned on yet & start designing those with Solar panels & internal charging points. :-)
Hmm...
1 of 2 options.
1: Caravans stuck on roads out of juice.
2: Caravan free roads.
...:-)

Solar Panels and Electronics will Cost More than Car/Vehicles.

With Cloud Cover; Nightime; Sitting in Canyons of City; Mountains Blocking Sun; et al.

Electric Vehicles will be STRANDED Everywhere.

Bet Electrics; Electronics; and Battery Problems will STRAND More than Charge Running Out.

Head Long RUSH into GREENIEVille is Beyond STUPIDDOME.
