Funny how they talk about it like it should be used in car engines.
Fossil fuel engines are old school.
Most countries plan to move to electric within the next 10 to 20 years.
Of course we still need lubrication in electric cars, so it may still be useful - although it appears to require high heat and pressure.

By the way, have you ordered a Tesla model 3 yet?

Originally posted by sonhouseNot a lot has been published about the Model S, but I believe current Model S's come with an 8 year guarantee on the motor and unlimited miles.
The ones now have a lifespan of about 160,000 km and I have over 200K now on my gasoline car.

Redline or Royal Purple high quality oil for gas ( petrol ) engines .....I hear after the VW TDI scandal VW is going to pursue electric cars to compete with Tesla
Originally posted by twhiteheadNissan Leaf starts at 29K and up to 36K depending on goodies. The range is still a bit shy of my needs right now anyway. Just to go downtown would be one thing but for a commute car of my long commute, I don't think the battery would last long enough to be worthwhile and would have to charge up after getting to work just to get home.

With many countries planning to go all electric, the market will remain large for some time to come.
Norway for example wants all new cars in 2025 to be zero emission vehicles, ...[text shortened]... nly about 0.1% of cars are electric
