    Nope. We use inches and feet. Still, since the Elio will be sold only in the US, it makes sense to use the same system that is used in the US. I'm not saying it makes sense or that everyone else should change to the system. I'm just saying that if you are talking about mileage of a vehicle that will only be sold in the US and the people you are talking to (reservationists who are IN the US make up probably 99% of the audience), you should use the system they use. Maybe we should mention that the Elio weighs 89 Stones because that makes just as much sense.

    The F35-
    "The plane, manufactured by Lockheed Martin but including parts made in several other countries, has been sold to a number of nations, including the UK, Japan, Italy, Turkey and South Korea"
    If our military uses international parts to produce the worlds most advanced fighter plane, IMO the E.M. would be advised to drop the concern for off the self American parts, and concede it's not practical to make it with only parts from the U.S. AND move forward to get the "&" into production.

    Then after the open the package for what ever they bought, they will try to read the instructions, and say why can't these people write clear instructions in Chinese!?

    I just bought a wire crimping tool. The last line in the instructions is , "Do not fall again please"
    ??? The other 4 did not even make that much since. Probably the wrong since. but spell check liked it.

    I ordered a 3D printer a couple months back, it shipped from a US warehouse but it is made in China. The outside of the box said "Afraid of wet". Teehee

    The solo is supposed to be in the LA area today and tomorrow at a local car show. Anyone in the area going?
    If Ford does produce the engine, I don't believe it will be the TURBO model. Yes it will be the 1L 3 cyl.
    Here is the link.

    Wait a minute! Arcimoto is doing it at their Eugene,OR manufacturing plant. I toured the plant last week. They are busy assembling FUVs, while cutting and tooling the parts from raw materials in house, which eliminates their reliance on parts suppliers, controls their parts inventory, and keeps their cost down. Also, I test drove a made in the USA FUV - - - WOWser! Arcimoto currently employs 84 highly motivated people. The ones I saw working at the AMP all had smiles on their faces. Yes, it can be done. Perhaps Elio could do it too if they only had a validated prototype. :)
