This isn’t really a question, but I hear it quite often now that gas is 50% of what it was when I began this project. My response is always an emphatic “No”.
First off it’s still much cheaper than running the gas car. Secondly, it is still less polluting than my gas car. Most of all though, this has been a great project and I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything. I learned a lot about electricity, cars, and managing a large project like this. I’ve made friends from near and far, but most of all we had a blast making it. It has been very fun and will continue to be fun as we tweak and improve the vehicle over the years.
