Even before petrol rises to over $1.30 a litre next month when the Qld Govt end their fuel subsidy…
This baby: http://www.ecomotionconcepts.com.au/site/products/electric-scooters/nope-j50-retro
Has a 1.5kWh capacity. So even if you drove it flat every day, and charged it on peak electricity, at 16c/kWh, you’re talking 24 cents a day.
That’s a whopping $1.20 a week.
And if you don’t drive it til it’s flat every day, and can charge it overnight with off peak electricity, then the cost will probably be more realistically something like $0.60 a week running cost.
That makes getting the bus look extremely expensive by comparison!

I can’t believe the trash on Channel 7’s Today Tonight talking about a bunker for running the Australian government in, and the cost. Whilst I’m no war monger, I think the general principle of having secure government operations is just fine. And what about the price?
$34 million over 2 years… that’s
- less than $1 per person per year;
- or less than 0.1% of the Australia’s defence budget;
- or about what Telstra paid Sol Trujillo as CEO.
I think the fools at Today Tonight should build themselves a bunker, get in and seal it from the rest of the world so we don’t have to waste our brains on this tripe.
