I screwed up about EVs - big time

EXPLANATION &amp; CORRECTION: In the original report (yesterday: EV versus diesel ute: what&#39;s REALLY really greener? &gt;&gt;), I made a small mathematical error at 19 minutes in. This is my blatant correction on that, with a distinctly different outcome to the original result. I value integrity, unlike politicians and CEO types, so make sure you watch the below video to get the full understanding to my original proposition that a big diesel V6 ute is less dirty than a big fat battery-power electric vehicle.

Bluetti EB3A portable power station review

The baby Bluetti EB3A is, essentially, a lithium-ion phosphate battery pack with built-in inverter, integrated AC charger, and solar charge controller. What that means is you can suck electricity out in just about any flavour that you could conceivably need in practice out there, in the bush. You get pure sine wave 240 volts AC, you get USB-A, high powered USB-C, 12 volts DC, and if that's not enough, there's even an integrated inductive charge pad on top for your phone. So, it's ridiculously portable and amazingly good value and if you need to sustain your digital nomad office in a ute or a van, if you need to take it for the weekend with you in your four-wheel drive; you want to carry it into a tent, you want to carry it onto a boat...

Using 4H to increase stability and traction. What are the consequences if you get this wrong? Specifically, a viewer asked if it's OK to use 4H on wet main roads, or unsealed roads.

The heavyweight problem with Ford Everest Basecamp

Ford Everest Basecamp has a problem: Ford cannot get the roof rack load right. The manual says '100kg' but the vehicle is fitted with a Rhino Rack and Sunseeker Awning, and Rhino says you need to reduce the payload by 33% if you go off road. Pro Tip: On Rhino-world, 'off-road' means 'unsealed'. So, if you drive on a dirt road, you can only carry 37 kilos of stuff &nbsp;- once you crunch the numbers. Small problem: Ford's depiction of the vehicle clearly shows it carrying a load substantially higher than that. Well done... Of course, the Everest Basecamp owner's manual makes no mention of any of these standard-accessory-generated limitations.

Toyota LandCruiser 300 diesel V6: Is the hot vee a lemon?

The new Landcruiser 300 V6 diesel engine will feature a so-called 'hot vee' - where the exhaust is in the vee between the cylinder banks, and the inlets are to the sides. &nbsp; And this does have some technical benefits, like minimising lag and maximising efficiency. Merc, BMW and Audi have adopted some hot &nbsp;vee engines. &nbsp; But they are prone to heat-related problems, like excessive oil consumption, and premature valve seal failures. Toyota has had a litany of technical problems in recent years, concerning the deployment of far simpler tech (like the 2.8 diesel DPF failure fiasco). &nbsp; Do you slam $100k (or more) on the table and roll that dice, or watch from the sidelines while others roll it for themselves?

Everything wrong with the mighty Toyota Landcruiser 300

Toyota has had 14 long years to get the upcoming 300 Series right. But once again, they've cemented its position as the King of automotive mediocrity. Toyota is drip-feeding information to whip up ongoing interest, and the media, thanks to bad advertising incentives and a short attention span, is just lapping it up. Nobody is calling Toyota out on their average effort with new LandCruiser, such is the appeal of that steady-flowing advertising revenue stream. You can now support these livestreams on Patreon.

The great EV rip-off: Australia confirmed as world's worst environmental joke

Politician versus environment: Victoria's unjust EV tax has passed through the upper house. (They're calling it a 'road user charge' because 'tax' is such a dirty word.) We are the only country in the world doing this - and it's because we lead the developed world in disgraceful environmental conduct.&nbsp; In this report we meet one of the men who supported this bill - whose support was critical to getting it passed.&nbsp; To be fair, he issued a press release championing what a top job he'd done here. How this was an excellent result. I just thought it was beyond due for a reality check on this insanity.

Politician Vs your car: How your personal mobility is under attack

The mad science of galvanising, and how it protects your car

Modern cars are galvanized, which explains the huge reduction in automotive rust over the past 30 years. Modern cars still rust, but they rust a lot slower than older cars, which were not galvanized.&nbsp; They don’t rust because of the cathodic protection. Rust is chemically impossible. (There might be the smallest amount of inconsequential surface corrosion, in places, like near scratches, but it won’t grow. It can’t.)
