Ireland is going to require these be displayed at every gas station

They're electronic so they regularly update. Failing to display this at a gas station will net you a €500 fine.

    They should show put up another display showing *pretax* cost.

      In Europe they don't show pre tax costs for anything because it's misleading.

        The point of a second display with pretax cost is to show how much consumers are getting screwed by petrol taxes.

          No, that's not the point. The point is to show how much consumers have to pay based on fuel type.

            Which is more for petrol because the tax is much higher on them. Again, show them pre-tax prices and the consumer might catch a clue they are getting shafted by the government racket against petrol.

            That's a slippery slope. Then you need to include the cost of healthcare from health problems caused by exhaust, damages from global warming, subsidies to the fossil fuel industry, etc.

            btw factor in the cost of lithium mining in china and the human and environmental cost there, not to mention china's notoriously environmentally-friendly manufacturing processes for these batteries. Then environmental cost from power and shipping.

      Fuel is heavily subsidized, so really they should show a 'welfare queen' screen and give fuel buyers the option to opt-out of the subsidies and pay their fair share of road use fees.

    Anyone interested in gas motoring should ensure there's a required board and a second board showing costs of there were no taxes or subsidies. Because subsidies won't last forever, especially once they've accomplished the goal of killing gas cars

      "Public" or rather "Vendor Independent" fast charging in europe is expensive af with rates of 1.5€/kWh + "small" fee per minute.

      considering that BEVs get ~18kWh/100km even this would make wildly noncompetitive

        I just checked my local supermarket's 200 kW charger pricing for unregistered customers. 1 € start fee + 0.33 € / kWh and no minute pricing if it's there for less than 45 minutes. Electricity isn't exactly cheap here, but cheaper than in some countries paying the price of moronic energy policies, I suppose.
        At that price and the current gasoline prices, an electric car that actually needs ~20 kWh / 100 km due to charging efficiency is about 50% cheaper per km than a gasoline family car that drinks ~6 L / 100 km in actual use.
        I don't know if I'd want to worry about the range and electric cars generally being shit in ass-freezing weather, but maybe that could work for someone.

    Why do car people hating comparing hard specs rather than going by "feeling" aka ignorance/first choice rather than competitive options?

    In every other domain, everyone compares hard specs, price/performance.

      Not for much longer. Canada is building a pipeline to the west coast and this year will start redirecting oil from the Midwest to the west coast and other countries.

        Canadian crude is mostly used for the production of greases and heavy fuel oil, not petrol.

    My boomer dad believes that they're forcing EVs so hard because the ultimate goal is for them to fail and ultimately result in everyone losing their cars.
    Still don't agree with him, but he might be onto something.

      EVs last way longer. We have EVs on the road that have 300,000 miles on them now.

    Why is diesel so cheap in Euro

    • 4 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      It's probably just taxed differently.
      In my country, diesel fuel has a lower tax %, but you have to pay a yearly tax for diesel vehicles based on their weight and classification (for any gasoline car it's just based on CO2 g/km). A very heavy diesel passenger vehicle might have 5-10 times the yearly tax of a small gasoline or hybrid shitbox.
