Decision made

Not quite an "old" Holden story, but...

Well, the decision has been made on the replacement for the VS to accompany the Qute in my driveway....

Assuming the lease company says "yes", and assuming Holden can build it by Christmas, I will have a new VY SS manual Ute for Christmas. An SS Crewman would have been nice too, but was just that little bit out of my price range....and I don't like buying the first of a model...better to let the factory learn how to bolt them together for a year or two first.

The dealer tried to sell me window tinting (for "just" $495! For a Ute!) on the premise that it would take a load off the aircon and I'd get better fuel economy! Yeah, right! Like I bought a 5.7 for its economy! I politely declined his most generous offer :-)

Fuel Crisis

I have been thinking lately about the current situation regarding the petrochemical industry. quite simply crude oil is not going to be around forever and most of us will probably experience the end of the petrochemical era within our lifetimes. Oil can be synthesised but as yet nobody can synthesise petrol and more r&d is going into alternative fuel sources. LPG is still derived from crude oil, ethanol ruins our engines and hydrogen cells are still only a theoretical device. Electric cars are crap - nobody wants to drive one and electricity is even more expensive to produce. Almost every major car company in the world has hydrogen cell research projects, but our governments seem hell bent on running our cars on ethanol. The question I ask - IS PURE ETHANOL A VIABLE ALTERNATIVE TO PETROL?
