Re: Why I stopped working on cleanmpg and why I'm posting it here

I listened to you and was receptive Saturday at HF2006, and the next day.

I was definitely talking in the tone of shaking hands....I'm sorry you insist on a fantasy that suits you...why do you...

Re: Why I stopped working on cleanmpg and why I'm posting it here

Bottom line is you had plenty of opportunities to talk to me and resolve this, but chose not to and present "truth" on par with the Soviet-era Pravda.

About all that's left to say here.

Re: Why I stopped working on cleanmpg and why I'm posting it here

I was interrupted talking to you Tom and under the definite impression this was being settled at HF2006....YOU refused to talk to me the next day....more fantasy tainted by your hatred of me.

I'd been banned from CleanMPG by Wayne long ago if there was a shred of truth to what tbalano said.

Re: Why I stopped working on cleanmpg and why I'm posting it here

Tom,

Your math is not exactly right:


Reacting like every post I made the last few months you were active was trollbait for no good reason

Re: Is greenhybrid near death?

I agree - some fence-fixing needed to be conducted privately some time ago.

Re: Is greenhybrid near death?

Back in early 2006 the activity here was ballpark with PriusChat (i.e. robust as in at least 10x the activity than the present). Even before Jason sold the site, he was eschewing "fringe hypermilers"...

Re: The Toyota Prius is bad for the environment

Read this (http://www.thecarconnection.com/article/1010861_prius-versus-hummer-exploding-the-myth) then find some credible sources about the toxicity of NiMH batteries.

Re: '99 Saturn SL2

About five years ago, I found stuff like this incredible but instead of ridiculing it, tried it and it's not far-fetched at all. Until three years ago, there were plenty of stories like this.

Re: 'Hypermiling' Is Dangerous, Says AAA

Daily 46 are killed by speeders, 35 more by drunks or people on drugs, 8 or so distracted drivers...with this hype of the "hypermiling terror" in the media, see anything wrong with this picture? We...

Re: Hybrid owner on TV

By the same definition, I guess Rosa Parks was "cocky".

I see a fair amount of projection here - the officer seemed like the cocky one by keeping on when it was obvious Conrad was not drunk,...

Re: Hybrid owner on TV

This is from the driver himself, who wrote this article earlier in The Washington Post (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/06/20/AR2008062002241.html)

He was going 50 in a...

Re: IMA battery dead at 109k. Honda USA worthless...

And that answer can be found probably for free.

AutoZone I believe reads codes off the OBDII socket for free...it's under the steering column most likely. Once the code is known, you can goole it...

Re: IMA battery dead at 109k. Honda USA worthless...

Afraid I'd still agree with Mike D (electrical engineer, inventor of MIMA) on this.

The IMA motor may still be spinning, but why is the IMA light on? Is it bad batteries? (P1440), is it a bad...

Re: IMA battery dead at 109k. Honda USA worthless...

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but since the IMA is also the alternator, essentially it's like driving a conventional car with a failed alternator with the IMA light on. In other words, the...

Glad to find some common ground.

Re: "xcel" in CNN Hypermiling Special

Life's that black and white? ;)

Is it physically impossible to do some of what Wayne does, such as not accelerating to the red light?

It's either drive 10 over the limit or 10 under the limit?...
