    Excellent to cover the Leaf! With gasoline soon to be at $4/gal due to oil companies shutting down operations in Libya, and SUV drivers spending $90 per tank to fill up, the Nissan Leaf is one awesome car! :)

    Bad news: the LEAF owner and Tony confuse power (watts) and energy (watts*time)
    Good news: A LEAF owner can apparently get along ok despite the bad news.

    Hi Justin,

    I listen infrequently; the LEAF interview was the lure and I had to come out of the closet when my fav host messed up.
