Would so rather drive a non-green big ass Ram truck then drive a prius.


Plus driving a truck goes with my personal vendetta against trees. Really hate how they jump in the way.

My question is are they talking Gas or diesel model? If it's the Hemi than how is it any different than the 1/2 ton? If it's the Diesel they may as well pull all that Emissions crap off because apparently it doesn't help

How about including the horrible footprint left behind from electric cars (battery) which supposedly has a worse carbon footprint lifetime vs lifetime than most any gas vehicles due to the battery when it's used up and taking room in a landfill. I have no evidence to back this up I just heard it from one of my friends who is a master tech at a auto group that sells MBZ, Mini Coopers, Cheby's, and a few other things.

Its a gas 2500, any 3/4 ton gas truck is going to be crap for mileage. Had a 4x4 2008 6 liter 3/4 ton GMC pickup with 4.10 geas and that thing got 10mpg combined on GOOD days, cant imagine the Dodge version of that being any better..

Good thing they'll never hook up and test my blown 349 with no cats running a rich tune, oh yeah, destroying the atmosphere here.

All of those batteries get recycled if the owner turns them in
recyclers love to see those electric car batteries coming in
down here you get charged for turning them in & you get charged again when you buy a recycled one



back before i had pocket change, we dumped a battery
then tapped on the sides & bottom of the battery with a mallet
then flushed the battery out again, until we saw nothing but clear water coming out & emptied it again

then we took a gallon of water in a jug, poured out something like 2 cups
then added 1 cup of battery acid, ( sulfuric acid ) into the jug. Then we capped the jug & shook it & then let it stand for a while, at least long enough to clean up your battery & battery terminals.
Next step is to put the battery on a charger for at least 3 hours, if you have a trickle charger, let it charge for 24 hours

NEVER EVER pour water into straight battery acid
ALWAYS pour battery acid into water
