    No problem.... how?

    Off-Topic Discussion
    I dunno, from what I've read ethanol is a net energy loser, ie: it takes more energy in the form of gas and diesel fuel, not to mention petroleum based fertilizers, to produce ethanol from corn than the energy that ethanol actually provides. The only reason it's produced in the quantities it is...

    Yo - OPEC almost done Hi guys - more than happy if this topic was moved to the Off Topic forum, but I have no idea how or if that is something an admin does. Anyway, there's an interesting update on Deffeye's website that some of you may be interested in. He's pointing out that OPEC almost...

    Whoa man I'm getting creamed here. I should have said "people like us" because, like I said, I don't think it's a good idea to hock the book on the front page either. It turns people off from what may be a big deal. Sorry about that Hudson, that one came out completely wrong and as soon as I...

    Hehe, there are already 6 bicycles in my garage, I can't fit any more!

    Hey Red, you're right, it's off topic, but I wanted the max number of people to be exposed to it before it was moved there :). I dunno about you, but I never looked in the off topic thread before. Regarding your post, give us numbers man. :) The last time oil jumped and outpaced supply was due...

    Oil Reserves Whoops - I forgot to respond to the implicit statement that stated reserves are fine. There are all kinds of controversies about oil reserves, and it's a pretty hard thing to determine anyway. What isn't ambiguous is that oil companies and oil producing countries have huge...

    ahh yess... When I first started reading that site above, it didn't mention the book on the front page. I think it was a mistake to put it there, because people like you will immediately turn away. I also think it is a huge mistake to ignore potential realities that could affect our lives...

    Huh? What was I dodging? What point are you making? I missed something or didn't explain something I guess. The old "Europe pays $4.00 a gallon for gas and therefore is somehow better than us" argument is a dead-end street. The reason their gas is "expensive" is because of the taxes added on to...

    The Netherlands have taken the lead in trying to promote sustainable living, but LPG vehicles are not immune from Peak Oil, as are any other technologies that rely on oil or products from refining oil. Also, I'm not sure I agree with your statement that the rest of the world doesn't rely on...

    Yeah that's the problem. The "alternative" media pics up on these things, and all of us normal people then ignore them as "conspiracy theories". This is one we shouldn't ignore. It's not just internal combustion engines of course, it's everything. It's keeping your house cool or hot. It's...

    I have to say, turn radius was one major reason I went with a 2004 4Runner (there, I said it!) after drooling over Titans for months (my first Titan drive was in November '03). 36.7 ft turning circle makes ALL the difference for my situation - towing in and out of a congested city neighborhood...

    For those of you truly interested in rising gas and energy (and therefore EVERYTHING else) prices, do a google search on "Peak Oil" and start doing your research. I'm not going to get into wild detail here, but I'll give it in a nutshell. This will affect all of us, definately within our...

    Ahhh yes Roomicus, but I know you, and I know the toys won't stop there. What kind of boat are you going to get to pull (2.5 months out of the year he he) with that shiny new Titan?
  15. Anybody move from an SUV to the Titan?

    Titan General Discussion
    I hope my stack of paperwork goes from 2 ft to 1 ft when I finally buy something. I was towing my boat with the ole Chevy Blazer in heavy traffic today and had to make some relatively quick lane changes and "accelerations". I was really wishin' I was in a Titan at that point...
