Curious now, if this will affect some of the vendors that We use for such things as this. Maybe be wise to find an ECM and send it in for a future predicted tune just so`s its setting there ready and waiting to go.
All of the "pioneers" from back in the day have basically quit tuning. It's crazy to see how much different things around from the mid 2000's.
Most of them have been in contact with a 3 letter govt agency and are being told or else. It's not hard to look around right now and see how free we actually are to do what we want.All of the "pioneers" from back in the day have basically quit tuning.

True, and at the same time the devil is in the details where I am simply not seeing towing range statistics or how much cargo they can carry in addition to the trailer. Short wheelbases are not appealing for what I tow either. Given that, I will stick with my carbon based vehicle for a while longer as its towing range is about (and a bit more than) what these BEV's are showing for empty. And, I can easily find a refueling station 24/7 within a 1/2 mile of the highway and get back on the road within 10 minutes.The cybertruck, f150ev, Rivian ev truck, and the GMC E Hummer. All will be driven on the streets by owners in 2021.
No rumor about it:. . . haven’t heard anything about BEV/ tesla and anti osha besides that above myth.
I have wondered, all is well until the grid is down then how do they charge those energy hogs?I agree with Jay that diesel/ gas is in the shorter half of its run. But I cannot see anything beating electric.
Our entire electrical infrastructure is being reworked as it is because population would demand it anyways.
while i disagree with wind and solar completely replacing coal plants at the moment- natural gas and hydrogen power plants is coming up.
when working at the plastics to fuel company here, We met a guy that is doing waste plastic direct to electric. Genius idea. He was talking the possibility of building a power plant at any major (1million people base) waste facility. The pyrolysis plant to process is not a huge complex btw. 1/2 acre is big enough for a major plant except for plastic supply yard.
Here in the southwest they could be so many more major solar power plants that it’s amazing. Some business have covered parking structures for the employees and visitors that the “roof” is actually panels. And as technology improves, output is going to get better and cheaper.
As more electric cars hit the road, eventually gas demand will slow and the price will become less. Saudi already proved they can pump it out for 1/3 the cost and still make money. What the now dead king did a few years back put a hurting on plastics to fuel and fracking investors. But there really is so many different energy supplies available, we have nothing to sweat.
On the electric side of things, many people do what I did- hate it, until they drive it. I promise you guys, 95% will fall in love the first time you drive one. Imagine your turbo and engine perfectly spooled pulling at max torque from the moment you foot hits the pedal.
The loss of a beautiful engine roar is the only thing missing, but a simple app that plays sound via throttle could fix that- for us diesel guys we just may need one 12” sub and a couple 6” with 400 watts to get it loud enough! Haha
Having spent years working in the petroleum fuel supply side of things as mechanic and electrician- I can tell you 100% that if the grid is down so is the ability to get gas or diesel.I have wondered, all is well until the grid is down then how do they charge those energy hogs?
Yep, mechanical fuel systems rock for SHTF situations.......Having spent years working in the petroleum fuel supply side of things as mechanic and electrician- I can tell you 100% that if the grid is down so is the ability to get gas or diesel.
If you don’t have the ability to make your own fuel, how would you fill the tank?
Try your best to find gas stations that have their own back up generator big enough to power the pumps and clean enough signal to run the computer- Not likely.
Electric has the advantage of solar power on your rooftop can charge the car/truck if needed. Granted slowly if they didn’t invest in battery storage, but not like folks can slowly get gasoline or diesel to trickle into their car from stuff at the house. If you run natural gas car and have spent the bucks to fill your car from that at home- ok.
Sorry, but zombie day doesn’t hurt a tesla nut as bad as it does a modern diesel nut. I can get used oil to drive my db2 6.5, but a duramax/ cummins/ powerstroke or ds4 6.5 isn’t gonna.
