    I had at least 3/8 of a tank, probably more like 1/2. My theory is this: The fuel pump pulls from a point near the rear of the tank. Even when pointed down at an angle sufficiently steep to uncover...

    I asked my dealer about it yesterday. He said what I experienced is "normal".
  3. A funny thing happened Behind the Rocks

    We ran the Behind the Rocks trail in Moab today. All (omitting White Knuckle) went well until the very end when we stopped at the top of the very first (unnamed) obstacle to see if we could go down...

    I was just in Joshua Tree last week. I generally agree with Eddie’s assessment. BUT there is an amazing bloom of wildflowers at the southern end of the park. Alas, it will probably be all gone by the...

    Glad you had a good time. Moab certainly deserves more an a day :-)

    But beware that it is VERY hot there in the summer. If you can you might find it better to go in October.

    Ah. Thanks. .... I found a press release from 2014:

    I have no idea. I could make a lot of speculative guesses. Do you have some more information?



    Right. It's a joint venture between the two companies. As far as I know the details of how that...

    That's radical :-) How to you steer it?

    Googling.... Oh I see. The driver doesn't control each wheel independently. There are a few modes the determine what the steering wheel means. Very cool....

    That IS funny. At least she was smiling at the end :-)

    Hah! That's good to know.

    They had another $500M round earlier. They claim that they now have enough to start production. We'll see. Maybe they'll make a partnership deal with someone to do the...

    Enough with the financials. What do you think of Rivian? Assuming they’re successful does FCA need to respond somehow? Would that reponse be an electric Wrangler or something all new? If you were...

    My guess is that Tesla is going to struggle to break even on the $35k models this year. But the average selling price for all versions of the Model 3 will be much higher; I’m guessing around $50k....

    I’m not going to defend Elon Musk. He’s a crazy man. And totally burned out from working 100 hour weeks last year (no exaggeration). But to be fair, he has taken Tesla from nothing 13 years ago to a...

    I guess I should have said “relatively huge”. Tesla more than doubled the number of cars sold in 2018 vs 2017. Of course, Tesla didn’t spend the kind of capital that FCA and the other biggies did in...

    I read it on the internet so it must be true that gross margins for the automotive industry average about 11%.

    I just didn’t want to get into a long discussion of TSLA’s financials. I’m not an accountant. But it’s not quite right to say they’re losing money on each car. The “gross margin” on each car is...

    Thanks for pointing that out; I didn't know there were different kinds of credits.

    The same thing happened to my JK. I had to drive 50 miles of pavement with a locked rear. FCA replaced it under warranty. Later, my sway bar disconnect died but I had to pay for that one.

    Can you point me to the other data you’re referring to? I wouldn’t be surprised to see some small variation from what I posted above but probably not all that much.
