@wakest there must be a planet-friendlier way than hurtling 2 metric tons of steel down the road in order to move 180 pounds of meat...

@qwazix I would happily jump on the back of a mopehead if there were options like that. 70+mpg. Id say yes to electric but the grid here is all coal anyway and thats just as fucked.

I built a 49cc gas moped. It's awesome. 100-150 miles per gallon.

@wakest
regarding gasoline engine vs coal electric, usually it's still more efficient to run electric off a proper generator than internal combustion, my informal understanding is that it's a factor of ten for carbon output (leaving out particulate concerns, industrial byproduct use perpetuation, and other considerations). That number was being provided for U.S. automobiles rather than scooter mileage.
