    15 years of EV driving for my wife and I and we've never needed a tow. I'd guess 300-400k miles total. During that period, I ran out of gas once. Forgot that the gas cars don't charge every night automatically.

    Thanks for the props - much appreciated.

    My wife and I have about 96,000 flatbed-free electric miles between us through four EVs and two good power-killing storms.

    Time to go back to focusing on the awesome Tesla EV grin

    Excellent blog post Michael, I think you hit the nail on the head here. Any more flatbed stories will just be another "Broder" from now on and you are right about the supporters from all over the world which many dont even drive EV's yet (me included).

    Thanks!

    Great framing, MPT.

    I do think there will be more flatbed stories - too many people are willing to go out of their way to make EVs look bad, and too many journalists (even fair-minded ones) are eager to "go the distance" to test claims and print a dramatic story - but I do think that how flatbed stories are viewed will be a little different.
