last night's TV seemed to say that .....
BEV makers tell people to operate the batteries between 80% and 20% capacity
MG even saying don't go below 50% - and others saying don't hold at 100%
for best battery life
on some cars this % is apparent to the user
often the range available figure isn't reliably based on depletion to eg 20% capacity (or replenishment limited to 80%)
hybrids produce more VOCs than some (diesel) ICE cars - due to more ICE running time without proper warmup
implying that VOCs escape recognition as hydrocarbons
eg aldehydes are VOCs
this from Emission Analytics
(whose Dieselgate tests showed no excess NOx in city driving - the TV then lying about this crucial and central point)
this (from other TV) ignoring the trendy use of unsaturated 'oils' as a general cooking ingredient
eg such use in baking etc giving maybe 10000x the aldehyde dose that fuel burning does ....
caffeine is removed from coffee by dissolving it in formaldehyde .....
(I say) huge amounts of VOCs in wood are mandatorily dumped before wood becomes 'goody-woody' fuel ......
and of course wood-fuel VOCs are similarly unrecognised by regulation
and the financial pages seem to say that ......
EV batteries have for years been sold at below cost - and in the forseeable term costs may increase
