This car is based in Oregon... there are something like 18 hydro electric
power plants in that state! Hydro generation accounts for 58% of all
electricity in Oregon (Over 70% in Washington) and coal accounts for less
Only about 15% of the energy from the fuel you put in your tank gets used
to move your car down the road or run useful accessories, such as air
conditioning. The rest of the energy is lost to engine and driveline
inefficiencies and idling. Therefore, the potential to improve fuel
efficiency with advanced technologies is enormous. With an Electric Car it
costs just $1.00 per 100kms with MUCH more performance than with petrol at
$20.00 per 100kms.
EVs use between 1/6th and 1/10th the energy of a comparable ICE powered

500 Miles in a Day in a Nissan Leaf
We set out to drive 500 miles in a day from the Waitrose eco-store in
Bracknell in a Nissan Leaf following the Ecotricity Electric Highway at
Welcome Break motorway service stations. This is our story.

Leaf-Blower Supercharging a 1978 Chevrolet Monza Spyder! - Roadkill Episode 16
On this episode of Roadkill, it's fun with Leaf Blowers. Experts on the
Internet said it would never work. That's never stopped Freiburger and
Finnegan, and this time on Roadkill the guys put the theory to the test:
can hardware-store leaf blowers supercharge an engine and make power? Step
one was buying a '78 Monza Spyder with a 305 V8 and a four-speed stick.
Step two was to take it to the shop of HOT ROD Drag Week racer Jeff Lutz to
tune it up, swap the engine to a 350, Dyno test it with five leaf
blowers, and do a whole bunch of needless burnouts. Step three was to drive
the Monza to Willmington, Ohio, for the East Coast Timing Association's
Ohio Mile event, a standing-mile race where they'd find out if leaf-blower
power adds up to more speed in the real world. The outcome? Who really
cares? Because on Roadkill, it's always about the adventure. And more
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

Nissan Leaf vs. Mitsubishi i-MiEV endurance race
Circuit Park Zandvoort. These cars followed each other around on the track.
Not competing for best time or max range, but simply to drive until they
couldn't go any further. The Leaf's range is rated at a max of 160
kilometers. The I-MiEV goes up to 130 kilometers. The New Motion team sets
out to see how far these two cars can go on a full charge when driving
around on a racetrack.
A Rare Series One Porsche 924 Turbo Carrera GT Recreation in Impeccable Condition. SOLD!
SOLD - SIMILAR REQUIRED CALL 01733 425140
An extremely rare Series One Porsche 924 turbo Carrera GT recreation in impeccable
Integrated polyurethane spoiler, Carrera GT bodykit, removable rigid
sunshine roof, halogen lamps, integrated headrests, door pockets, locking
glove compartment, folding rear seats, rear roller blind, electric windows,
green marking sports gauges, 'turbo'
door step panels, electric door mirrors, rear window wiper, space-saver
spare. Factory fitted options; High pressure headlamp washer system, front
screen green shade.
Finished in Porsche Grand Prix White 507, (like the prototype Carrera
GT/GTS models), this fascinating model gleams brightly. Cosmetically
enhanced with a Carrera GT bodykit, all as part of an extensive rebuild,
which saw many fittings re-anodised and powder coated. The body kit is not
a poorly attached fibreglass kit, instead it includes steel front wings and
the correct rear inner wheelarch in-fills for those iconic flared arches.
Everything is tight and strong. Detailing even extends to correct GT
decals. Clean inner wheel arches, waxoyled chassis and suspension, are
reassuring signs of careful maintenance and limited dry weather enjoyment.
Minute touched-in stone chips to the lower front bumper and passenger wing
are barely noticeable and do not detract from the craftsmanship and care
lavished on this car.
As with the prototype Carrera GTS this example sports the same white
pinstripe upholstery in undamaged, spotlessly clean condition. Sinking
into the cockpit presents the driver with a wealth of working
instrumentation such as an oil-pressure gauge, ammeter and clock with green
lettering, as used for the instruments of the Series 1 only for just 2
years. Deep black carpeting, perfect door cards and tight headlining
reveal the pampered life this car has enjoyed. A tiny split to the rear
headlining along a stitched seam will enable an unseen repair to be made if
necessary. Pure Porsche driving pleasure.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The 2-litre 924 engine with a Bosch a fuel injection system and 0.7bar turbo charging produces 170bhp with
smoothness and flexibility allowing a sprint to 62mph in 7.8 seconds. The
detailed engine bay features many as new components in appearance and with
professional maintenance, (most recently from renown Dave Griffiths Racing
Ltd), reliability and enjoyment can be expected. Linked with a 5-speed,
dog-leg gearbox with progressive and positive action.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Fitted with the very expensive and much sought after Fuchs lightweight
alloy rims (7-inch front / 8-inch rear, as on the 911 turbo) in excellent, polished condition. These
are wrapped in Yokohama Ad Van 225/50 R16 tyres. An unused space-saver
spare is retained. Four internally ventilated brake discs with floating
calipers inspire repeated confidence.
This example was registered on the 5th March 1980 and is the rarer Series 1
Porsche 924 turbo model, built 1979-80.
(This model continued for only two years, before being supplanted by the
series 2 version from 80-84). Purchased from an avid Porsche enthusiast
who purchased this example seven years ago due to the convincing and
professional build it offers of the first prototypes from Porsche to
recreate the very limited 75/406, designated type 938 RHD models ever
Enthusiasts can rarely find one of the genuine examples and the £25-45K
prices they now command show no signs of cooling. The condition and
overall finish should not be assumed to be comparable to other "projects"
Recent service receipts showing cambelt, camshaft oil seal, stainless Exhaust, fuel hoses, starter motor, fuel
pump, plugs, oil changes, etc. all replaced professionally in the last 24
months by reputable specialists Dave Griffiths Racing Ltd.
Approved Used Car Check Certificate and HPI clear.

Nissan Leaf 2013/14 - testing the world's best selling electric car [Review]
http://www.redferret.net/?p=42084. The Nissan Leaf 2013/14 is the latest
model of the world's best selling electric car. The Leaf Tekna which we
used for a week, comes fully loaded with heated seats, heated steering
wheel, a solar panel on the rear wing and the typical features of most
modern EV cars.
We found it to be a pleasure to drive and surprisingly nimble for such a
spacious vehicle. More details can be found at www.redferret.net.
