    Insurance

    I have Travelers and it looks like my automotive insurance is going up by a third (150-200 a mos.). I have a call in to my agent to see what my options are with deductibles, etc. But I'm also looking at other companies. Does anyone like their insurance coverage with someone who is currently...

    Getting the dealers on board.

    Many of us have ideas on how to run a multi-billion dollar corporation. This is my entry. Car dealers are babbit-like troglodytes who haven't gotten on board with electric cars. Part of the reason, it's thought, is that BEVs don't require the same level of maintenance as ICE cars, so long term...

    Emporia Data Export

    I tripped across a data export feature in the Emporia App. I think a few of us have one. It exports data to a csv file and sends you a link so you can download it. I exported from the time I got the device (end of Feb., 2023) to now. The zip file had five files, with breakdowns by day, hour...

    Why I love Reddit.

    I've never met one of these Mustang aficionados. I was in line at In N Out and the guy taking the order said he didn't know Mustang made an SUV. I'm like, that's what you notice? Not that it's Electric? Any way.

    Upgrading stock stereo with better stock stereo.

    I have a CA Rt 1, which has the entry level stereo system. Acceptable compromise since I came of age listening to AM radio. (CKLW!). Now, 8 months in, I'm wondering if it's possible to get Ford to upgrade to the better stereo. Has anyone done that? Is the better stereo better?

    Meanwhile in Sacramento

    I'm on the right. While I was at lunch the CA RT 1 on the left showed up. I like the "white". Not sure which version of the white it is.
