    If you could store Electric power - there would be no need for a $ Meter on the side of your house - That won't change till the power company can charge for the sun

    In the long run I think what you save in fuel costs doesn't make up for maintenance and battery replacement unless you trade while the vehicle is still under warranty.
    Not just that! Without paying for fuel taxes it has been entertained to tax one for miles driven. So running my D-Max is subject to double taxation?

    Here in Michigan were about to pass another 20cents per gallon to fix the roads, yet the builders are not held accountable for the marginal work that needs to be addressed 2 years down the road.
