The old Sachs moped rolls again
I see ads everywhere today for mopeds and scooters that get up to 100 miles per gallon. Considering that my Sachs gets 150 mpg, I wonder why 30 years of innovation has not brought about better fuel efficiency for scooters.
I'd love to have one of these hot new electric scooters, just as I would love to have a phev electric car.
Until I find the products on the market that I actually want to buy, I've decided to forgo small incremental benefits. I'll drive the old Mountaineer until I can trade for a PHEV. And I'll drive the old Sachs moped until I can get a 300 mpg scooter, or a semi-affordable electric scooters.
