Stinking Gas report;
5/14/11, San Jose, CA $4.00. My GMC Sierra pick-up has a 34 gallon tank, total cost to fill the tank is $136. Electric car distance for $136 of electricity is 6,800 miles.

Drive from San Francisco to New York City, NY and back for LESS than the cost of ONE tank of gas.

When the batteries run low, FREE charging stations can be found at many businesses including some Ralphs grocery stores, Costco stores and Hilton Hotels. Maps of FREE recharging locations, http://www.eaaev.org/eaaevcharging.html

Roll into the parking lot of Costco and pull up in front of two chargers. Bright green signs read "Electric Vehicle Parking Only." Nearly every Costco store has a pair of chargers in its lot, or plans to install them soon. The company is committed to creating an unbroken string of chargers up and down California for electric car drivers.

This is a powerful custom electric vehicle. The owned must have a good working knowledge of electric vehicle conversions, electrical and mechanical systems.
