my brain dumps here…

Electric Scooters available in Brisbane now!

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!
