Re: PG&E called; Cupertino is their highest density EV marke

oakland has the highest density of unused leafs. there's a guy around the corner from me who bought two, and the second one *has not moved* in 14 months now. i'm sure the battery is completely ruined. the brake rotors are 100% rusted over.

can't fathom what this guy is thinking.

Maybe it's an experiment as to long-term battery loss (self-discharge) ;)

maybe he wants it for spare parts.
way cheaper to buy in bulk and have a hedge against the market.

i suppose, but hey, the #1 thing that you'd want to replace is the battery. i'm just guessing but would it not be a Very Bad Thing to leave the battery completely discharged for 1+ year?

probably just a dude with too much $$ :)
