  •  A pure-EV allows me to go off-grid (1+ / 0-)

    And setup my own solar installation to power my house and car.

    You cannot do that with a gas car. At all.

    Plus, I would posit that the EROEI and pollution output of coal power+transmission+zero-emmissions is still better than the oil extraction (and the military force to force other countries to do that), refining, transport, storage and subsequent burning in a terribly inefficent small motor.

    Did you know that gas cars (aside from hybrids like the Prius) still have emissions while turned off?  It's called evaporative emission.

    If you want to run the numbers, I would bet you EVs still win.
