2023.03.25 23:53 wikistik Sportage PHEV gas only range issue
We have a 2023 Sportage PHEV with about 1000 miles on it. We are getting abysmal gas only mileage (electric range seems fine). On a fairly flat highway trip with 1-2 people in the car in HEV mode we are getting about 24-25 mpg, which is a long way short of the 35 EPA combined estimate for the gas engine. There is nothing obviously wrong except we also cant seem to use the full gas tank capability. The tank is rated at 11.1 gallons. But if we run it down to single digits on gas miles remaining we can't get it to take even 9 gallons of gas. So 9 gallons x 25 mpg = a pathetic 225 mile gas range.
Any suggestions as to what is wrong here?

2023.03.25 23:49 PhannnyPack Transitioning to Car living
My LT bf and I are about to transition to car living pretty soon here. I feel pretty confident as we both have full time jobs and he has a car he can fit a whole bed in (Chevy Tahoe). My biggest concern is finding a place to park where we won’t be harassed by police/civilians. Any suggestions on transitioning to living in a car and finding safe places to park ?

2023.03.25 23:19 TheCuriousBread PSA: Tips aren't "tips" on food delivery apps (UberEats, DoorDash, SkipTheDishes)
With how often you see food delivery drivers on the streets and how commonly used their services are, I think it's to the benefit of everyone to clarify what "tips" actually are.
- Base Pay: The driver is paid a $4 base pay for every delivery. It doesn't matter if he has to drive 10km or 20km or wait half an hour at the store. $4.
- Promo: sometimes when an area is short on drivers, the app incentivizes people to work there by offering a bonus of $2 or more to attract workers.
- "Tips": They aren't conventional tips that reward good service, you offer tips before they even pick up the order, they are more incentive to attract drivers to take your order. If you offer no tips, if it takes the driver half an hour to drive and deliver your order, the driver just made $4 for 30 minutes of work. BEFORE fuel cost and insurance cost. The minimum wage right now is $15.65/hr as a reference.
An order came in that offers $7.50, the base pay $4 + tips $3.50.Delivering the order took the driver 30 minutes to complete.The total driving distance is 10km, the car has a gas mileage of 7L/100km, and gas price is at $1.8/L so it costs $1.28 in gas.
That's $6.22/half hour or $12.44/hr.
It literally pays less than minimum wage when "tips" are bad.
(the Fantuan app is another story, mostly just rich immigrants and Asian students who "work" to keep their parent's allowance)
- If you're a customer, if you want someone to pick up your order in a timely fashion, increase your "tips". If you wish to thank the driver for his service, give more tips afterwards, leave a good rating in the app or good ol fashion cash.
- If you're a driver. Well shit sucks, no way to get around it. Death is the poor man's doctor.

2023.03.25 22:26 Zzz73 2020 Fried ECU
Took my 2020 Frontier in for the parking pawl recall (and i guess another one that required an ECU reflash) I was told the ECU made it half way through the update and corrupted. Truck is dead in the water at the dealership. Good news, it's under warranty. better news, got a loaded 2023 Titan Pro 4X to drive for a few days. The Titan is pretty nice, but man is the gas mileage bad. Makes the Frontier seem like a Prius.

2023.03.25 22:19 47milliondollars Advice on what to list sprinter for?
2005, great condition, ~90k miles, 158 wheel base, well taken care of.
Upgrades: - fully insulated (walls and floor) - solar panels (200watts) - battery system (200amp hour) - tinted windows along entire passenger side - areas under windshield treated for rust prevention - gas oven and stove - low amp chest fridge freezer (Wynter) - diesel burning heater - table and benches that convert to a bed
Main issue is that it looks a little rough inside. The previous owner put panels over the insulation that are covered in outdoor grey carpet that's starting to detach, and we built the interior out of plywood as a trial layout. Purely cosmetic, the van is awesome otherwise.
My husband was diagnosed with MS and considering leaving his job, so we're just trying to simplify and beef up our savings. Hoping for some solid advice on what to list this for in the US (Colorado). Thanks in advance.

2023.03.25 21:37 itoldonannfrankk On call policy
Hello all, this is my first time posting here. My fiancé and I both have the same job title but work in neighboring cities. We both have public safety jobs working for our cities (not police officers). In my city, we are given company vehicles to take home on the nights we are on call, which is 3-4 days a week. We can’t use our personal vehicles for anything work related due to the risk of liability according to our policies. My fiancé however has the opposite happening. We live about 36 minutes from his workplace. He is on call multiple nights a week as well. When he gets an emergency page, he has to drive 36 minutes to work, pick up a city truck, and then drive to whatever emergency call (0-30 minutes from his office depending on location).
Recently they’ve hired a new person who has started logging mileage and is asking what happens if he gets in an accident in his personal car while driving to a truck for an emergency call. The supervisor for his facility has no answer. She won’t go to anyone higher than her to find the answer and just says that the people above her only permit police and fire to take home vehicles for on call shifts.
He drives frequently using his personal vehicle for work and spends a lot in gas as well. He’s also wondering now who we should contact to discuss what would happen in the event that he has an accident doing work related tasks. Is there anything we should be aware of? It’s possible that he signed a disclosure upon hire but he can’t recall.
He will be reaching out to HR on Monday however just asking here for advice about anything he may need to bring up or questions he should ask.
Thanks in advance!

2023.03.25 20:54 ClimateInfinite What's a good, cheapish, daily truck for car flipping?
I've been getting really into car flipping and I'm looking to buy a (probably smallish) used truck that would help me transport the cars I buy. My price range is under $10k but if possible I'd like to go under $5k. I know gas mileage isn't something trucks are known to be great for, but the higher the better, of course as this will be what I use to go to school four days a week
I'm looking at used 2002 v6 Ford Ranger for $3k.

2023.03.25 20:28 buftixthrow Prius or Fit, both high mileage
Hi all--please help me decide between:
- 2016 Honda Fit LX automatic, 155K miles (250K km)
- 2015 Toyota Prius, 235k miles (380k km). Have been proposed a one-year warranty on the hybrid battery which I expect I could bump to at least two.
Both cars cost essentially the same. This would be a first car, mostly because our kid is getting old enough to be driven to friends/activities etc. Primarily city driving. We have not been a road-trip family so far, especially since we don't own a car now; there would be maybe 5-6 two-hour each way trips annually to see grandparents although perhaps we'd drive out of town more once we had a car. Northeastern climate. It will also serve as a learning-to-drive car for my spouse. Adding 10K to the odometer in a year is probably about right or even a little high.
For my purposes, there's no real difference between how they feel (at least in a test drive) and in terms of legroom/headroom, although I'm told the Fit is louder on highways. Saving on gas/emissions is a plus. The prius' being a midrange (and not an econo like the Fit) versus the Fit's fitting into smaller parking spaces is largely a wash for me. Cargo space is not relevant. I care about reliability (especially at these high mileages) but my understanding is that the Fit and Prius are very reliable and long-lived (subject to the Prius battery on which I'd get some warranty as above).
I would get a pre-purchase inspection (at this point I'm mostly deciding which one to fork out that money for.)
I am planning to have it for 2-5 years and then switch to a fully electric car. So resale value is of some importance to me. My sense is that a sub-200K mile Fit would still be reasonably easy to sell but a Prius on the far side of 250K miles would be a tougher sell.

2023.03.25 20:27 xc70boarder New card advice for young student
Current cards: Discover (authorized user on parents’ card — line open since 2005), Discover it $2000 May 2022, Apple Card $3400 October 2022
FICO Score: 747
Oldest account age: 30 months
Chase 5/24 status: N/A
Average monthly spend and categories: - dining $100 - groceries: $200 - gas: $100 - travel: $100 - other: rent/bills $750
Open to Business Cards: No
What's the purpose of your next card?: Building credit mostly, don’t want big purchases to go to waste (cash back or travel points)
Do you have any cards you've been looking at?: Chase Sapphire Preferred, Chase Freedom Unlimited
Are you OK with category spending or do you want a general spending card?: Preferably general spending as I don’t spend much on travel
I am currently a grad student looking to get a new “adult” CC. I am young and have just begun building up my credit with my first Discover it card, so I’m looking for advice on my next step. I am planning a trip this summer which I envision spending a couple thousand $ on including flights and lodging — I’d really like this money to go towards points or cash back.
I have mainly been eyeing the CSP and CFU cards. The CSP seems to have really great rewards, especially the SUB. I’d love to book my upcoming trip with this card for the travel insurance and also to have no foreign exchange fees during the trip. However, I feel like it’ll be tight to spend the initial $4k in 3 months and I’m not particularly keen on the annual fee seeing as I’m a student and have a very limited income. I’m also not sure if the travel points are worth it at this point since I really don’t travel very often. For these reasons, I’ve been looking at the CFU card. Does the CFU seem like a better option for my circumstances? Is it even plausible to apply for these cards given my young credit age?
Edit: changed oldest account age to primary accounts, not authorized user)

2023.03.25 19:54 Sick-Phoque Question about fuel capacity/mileage on '16 Corolla LE
Hi all. So the other day I got on the highway forgetting I needed to fuel up. I saw that I had enough mileage remaining to reach the gas station with a few km to spare (plus I have a 5L gas can in trunk for emergency) but the last ~15km of remaining mileage went down disproportionately fast, and by the time I reached the gas station , remaining mileage was either 0 or 1km.
Now my fuel tank capacity is 50L so I was expecting to put close to that in, but it would only take 43 Litres. And I've noticed it never takes as much fuel as I expect. Is this just some fuel reserve so people don't run out of gas?

2023.03.25 19:13 ramandigital An overall look of trucks. What about the popularity of Tata mini trucks?
Trucks are the most affordable means to transport heavy to lightweight loads from one corner to another. Initially, Gottlieb Daimler designed the first motor vehicle in 1896. 'Phoenix' was the first motor truck that had a four-horse-powered engine. After that, technology changed not only the exterior but also the interior part of a truck.
Various types of trucks have now come into force. Their features and usage are sometimes different. Some trucks are heavy-duty, some medium-duty and some trucks are light-duty. Some trucks are used for transporting goods, and some are used to carry gallons of water or oil, whereas some are used to deliver stuff door-to-door. Several companies are there to produce different trucks like tractors, toppers, small trucks, water tankers, etc. A small truck like tata ace
has fame and demand in the market. Key facts
When this mini truck was introduced in 2005, it completely changed how goods were transported in India, opening up new business opportunities, creating jobs, and encouraging entrepreneurialism. People throughout the nation adore the brand for its long-lasting performance in all kinds of terrain and weather.

All line-up’s of this series are very reasonable in price. The price range starts from ONE 4.70 Lakh and varies to ONE 12.80 Lakh. Popularity
Chotha Hathi is the nickname of all the small trucks of Tata. They have a legendary market in the Indian truck industry. Tata mini trucks continue to be consumers' first choice, with more than 50% of the market share in the category. The Tata is unbeatable at the top with their competitive price, minimal maintenance costs, dependable performance, and high premium in used trucks. Business purpose
Tata small trucks are very efficiently handling the business purpose of the owners. These mini trucks offer high performance.

2023.03.25 19:07 RMachuca3d Traded some HW’s for these, any rare ones?
2023.03.25 18:50 DragonflySea2328 When you consider an AVERAGE order, deduct $6.30. That's your net profit in the BEST scenario
People are not going to like hearing this. There is a reason Walmart doesn't use employees and their own vans to deliver. They rely on delusional, desperate people who largely cannot add and subtract, to deliver their orders, many times for free or close to it.
Here is the actual costs of delivering groceries;
1) the it's allows a 63 cent deductible per mile. I am using 40 cents per mile. It doesn't matter if you drive a Tesla or Prius because the money you save on gas you lose in depreciation -- a more expensive car will result in more monies depreciation. 40 cents a mile is actually probably low. An average order is 6 miles. Round trip is 12 miles. That's 12 X .40 or $4.80 for car depreciation/ gas every AVERAGE order 2. Employee/ employer taxes - because you supposedly work for your self ( lmao) you pay both employer and employee social security and Medicare and Medicaid taxes. That's 15.3 percent of ADJUSTED Income or actual profit. Let's assume you gross 40 k and declare to the IRS you made 20 k after mileage and assorted deductions - that means 3,000 you owe IN ADDITION to regular income taxes. That 3,000 divided by 52 weeks, and then by 40 orders a week results in 1.60 an order. Add that to the 4.80 to arrive at the 6.30
""" Assorted losses that SHOULD be added to the 6.30 but at a minimum should be considered losses; 1) no health insurance 2) no vacation pay or sick days or paid time off 3) five fold risk of car accident 4) risk of injury in job and zero access to workers comp or disability insurance 5) no access to unemployment in the event of deactivation 6) no access to worker's comp in event of injury, and risk to injury higher given heavy items carried, car accidents, dog bites, and more 7) forget applying for a mortgage or loan or credit card. Applying for a rental or car loan is beyond impossible. An individual doing this would need a spouse with a W2 / or be retired/ have a home already
The cost to an average employer for average benefits on an individual employee is well documented at $10 an hour. So, consider that as well
At a bare minimum you should be deducting 6.30 from each offer when considering taking it. In really, you should be deducting far more.

2023.03.25 17:12 uncle_freshflow First SUV - Need Some Advice
Just really really ridiculously good looking
So here's the situation: family of 4 including 2 young kids, first time home owner. We've reached a point where the sedan just isn't cutting it. I'd like to buy an SUV like this:
- At least 65+ cubic feet of max storage space (like Rav4 status or more).
- Don't really need a 3rd row, but do need a 2nd row that adults can sit in comfortably.
- I don't plan to tow anything.
- Gas mileage not super important.
- I need it within the next 3 months.
- Good in the New Hampshire snow (needs AWD or 4WD)
- Reliability and resale value are important
- OTD price under $50k
Options I'm considering: Rav4 Hybrid Limited
($40k-ish new): I'm on the wait list for one. Great gas mileage. Really good storage capacity. Toyota reliability and likely to hold its value. Cons: loud on the highway, not the most premium option. Jeep Grand Cherokee
($40k-ish used): I've always loved the iconic look, good in the snow, good storage capacity, more premium interior. But, more expensive and on the larger side. (Side note, I'm kind of shocked that the Jeep and the Rav4 have the same max storage capacity despite the Rav4 having a much smaller footprint). Mazda CX-5 / CX-50
: More premium interior than the Rav4 but seems a little small for the 4 of us. Mazda CX-9
($45k-ish new): Looks really nice, planning to go test drive one. Again, kind of shocking that it's 20 inches longer than the Rav4 with the same total cargo capacity. Downside: I don't really need the 3rd row and it's the longest of all these options. Hyundai Santa Fe
($43k-ish used): Seems very similar to the Rav4 and I have no experience with Hyundais, but it gets great reviews. I like that it's smaller than its big brother, the Palisade.
I'm a little overwhelmed by all the options! Thanks for your input, internet people.
