Have you never sat back and thought why you feel the need to comment on virtually every post on here, to do with vehicles of one type or another?
You really do need to find some other interests, to at least try and brighten up your days.

I’m not protesting anything, I asked you a simple question. You really don’t have a grasp of much, do you?

Too many garages pass such vehicles with an armful of advisories.

All these fossil fuel vans and cars bursting into flames. Should be band from the roads and the ferries, a fire risk! A modified diesel waggon burned down the multistorey carpark at an airport recently. Imagine if that was on a ferry!

All electric are a lot safer, the stats prove it! Only a fossil fool would deny the truth.

More and more electric cars are catching fire all over the world, take another look at the stats again in about two years.
And remember electric cars are still a minority at the moment, so your made up stats are irrelevant…

Shut up Fred, electric vehicles are for nonces and rapists. Worse thing to ever be made, waste of time and money.

Years ago I used to drive second hand Volvo sedans; we had two of them. One day I parked the car outside my office and noticed smoke coming from under the bonnet. I raced around, lifted the bonnet and saw a flame or two. Looking for a hose, water anything, by chance the neighbour happened to have a bucket of water handy (!) and doused the motor. With flames out and following a brief cooling off, I noticed a coil lead had burned through. A simple replacement and I was back on the road.
