Going Green

New neighbor has a Nissan Leaf "Zero Emissions".
We have had some cold weather. -8° to 14° warming to the upper teens. Yesterday she was a passenger in my 1986 Mitsubishi Might Max going to Safeway. Seems the Leaf won't move when it is this cold.

It is possible it is operator error. She didn't impress me as to her automobile knowledge and I'm not interested in looking into her vehicle problems.

My next door neighbor has one.

It's good for 100 miles on a charge, and he never drives it more than 70.

Might be OK in Lost Angeleez, but out here it makes a trip to Denver an overnighter!

Yep, batteries don't like cold. And I'd let her deal with the dealer... LOL

Enough range to make it to Enterprise where you can rent a real vehicle.

I was duped into a Leaf rental once. What a mistake that was. There was another vehicle (hybrid) and I think that it was a Korean car where there was a picture of an Earth. If you drove it like you stole it, the planet turned brown and died. Naturally I drove it until Earth was a cinder. I think that they offered that as a challenge that I naturally accepted.

I hope that she was attractive and you gave her the gas, grass or cash lecture... We know that she's dumb enough to buy a Leaf.

Attractive after a fashion until she started talking.

I hate it when that happens.

You sly old devil. Now that you've had your first date, hook he battery back up and let her drive it. As for her light bulb being dim, you don't want to discuss quantum physics with her, anyway. Just enjoy the physical company on those cold nights. She may rejuvenate your batteries.

My standards are low, but I do have standards.
