  1. Programming a Key Fob

    I'm down to one fob too -- FRPP tune -- I don't quite understand why you need two fobs to program a third -- why is that -- but what's my best way back to having a second fob?
  2. Mustang "Lithium" Battery Electric Prototype Signals Future With 900+ HP / 1000 FT-LBS Torque!

    The thing I find most comforting about this: Those gas stations are all on the grid, and can be outfitted with charging stations at some point.

    I'm glad it worked out for you -- would have been a massive pain to have run out then...
  4. Mustang "Lithium" Battery Electric Prototype Signals Future With 900+ HP / 1000 FT-LBS Torque!

    That's good information -- I'm not going to push my luck...
  5. Mustang "Lithium" Battery Electric Prototype Signals Future With 900+ HP / 1000 FT-LBS Torque!

    Exactly. I'm pretty sure the Mustang has a 16 gallon tank -- seems to be the case, though I can't remember exactly. When I'm running low, It will take around 14 gallons. I average around 18mpg -- mostly highway. I like to play.

    In WV, you might be a meth head if on a bike lol -- I try to take my bike to the metro when the weather is good -- fold it up, and take it on the Metro to the central business district in D.C. I mostly drive my Mustang on the weekend -- I also love my chocolate chip cookies -- but I don't eat...
  7. Mustang "Lithium" Battery Electric Prototype Signals Future With 900+ HP / 1000 FT-LBS Torque!

    Did you watch the whole thing? That's really not what I took away from it.
  8. Mustang "Lithium" Battery Electric Prototype Signals Future With 900+ HP / 1000 FT-LBS Torque!

    You can go 400 miles in your Mustang? Ecoboost? There's no friggin' way my GT will do more than around 340 before running bone dry!
  9. Mustang "Lithium" Battery Electric Prototype Signals Future With 900+ HP / 1000 FT-LBS Torque!

    Ha ha! Okay -- well, my father was an avid train fanatic -- he was for his entire life -- he was in the train club at Purdue University when he was finishing his masters degree there, and made a life-long friendship with a man named Jack Hawkins - principle of Hawkins Rail Services in Lafayette...
  10. Mustang "Lithium" Battery Electric Prototype Signals Future With 900+ HP / 1000 FT-LBS Torque!

    My main point is that after being in a car for a couple hundred miles, I like to get out and walk around some anyway, and as the Engineering Explained YouTube video I've shared suggests, you can charge up an EV's lower portion of battery in about as much time as I'd stop for lunch or dinner...
  11. Mustang "Lithium" Battery Electric Prototype Signals Future With 900+ HP / 1000 FT-LBS Torque!

    Here's some additional food for thought -- not specific to Mustangs -- just some analysis of EV's in general:
  12. Mustang "Lithium" Battery Electric Prototype Signals Future With 900+ HP / 1000 FT-LBS Torque!

    That's all fair -- but you don't need to top all the way off to get over 300 miles, and charge rates are not linear throughout a battery's capacity. Three months after I got my GT, I drove from Maryland to Indiana with my daughter and a trunk full of paper boxes full of brass HO-scale...
  13. Mustang "Lithium" Battery Electric Prototype Signals Future With 900+ HP / 1000 FT-LBS Torque!

    Okay -- this is not specifically about Mustang -- but it's relevant to the EV component of this thread -- and the tech is improving:
  14. Mustang "Lithium" Battery Electric Prototype Signals Future With 900+ HP / 1000 FT-LBS Torque!

    Not sure I made a comparison - I’m illustrating that there are many ways to generate electricity, that it’s ubiquitous - in my experience, they even have electricity in Texas... I’m not sure about the relevance of your overlay - it seems like what Germany is doing might work better in Texas...
  15. Mustang "Lithium" Battery Electric Prototype Signals Future With 900+ HP / 1000 FT-LBS Torque!

    You reckon that’s due to cheap Chinese labor? I expect all of these things can and will change some. Tesla is rumored to be coming out with a “million mile” battery within a couple of years. I’d like to see some studies on the projected impact of electrification - thankfully there are so many...
  16. Mustang "Lithium" Battery Electric Prototype Signals Future With 900+ HP / 1000 FT-LBS Torque!

    Places like Germany and Australia are doing pretty darned well with renewable energy - and it’s still in its infancy.
  17. Mustang "Lithium" Battery Electric Prototype Signals Future With 900+ HP / 1000 FT-LBS Torque!

    Maybe - and at probably a third the price - but the Tesla (also American) has a motor driving the front (two driving the back) wheels too - would have the AWD advantage unless some of what we’ve heard about platform-sharing plans is true...
  18. Mustang "Lithium" Battery Electric Prototype Signals Future With 900+ HP / 1000 FT-LBS Torque!

    Sure thing! Nice to see someone thinking about those poor Chinese kids! And I’m pretty sure the current crop of lithium batteries are recyclable - might put one in my 5.0 to save some weight. I’ll also grant you that solar makes more sense than the current windmill designs - pretty sure there...
  19. Mustang "Lithium" Battery Electric Prototype Signals Future With 900+ HP / 1000 FT-LBS Torque!

    Electrics are far and away more efficient than gas cars - as in you can go 2000 miles on the equivalent of maybe one tank of gas - Jason Fenske has a video up on it. I love the idea of a manual - and you can probably start in any gear, and keep it in that gear the whole time. You can probably...
