Yesterday I was reading the paper and I skimmed an article about electric cars. I read that the Nissan Leaf is all electric (sounds good), takes 8 hours to charge on a 240-volt circuit (great, I sleep eight hours) and goes up to 100 miles on a single charge. What?! 100 miles for 8 hours of sitting. How does that work? What if you don't live within 20 miles of anything? What if you need to drive to Texas or somewhere really far away? I think I'll stick to gas for a few more years.
