If that was really a big thing, then I doubt I'd see so many EVs here in Alaska. Even seen me some Rivians now...but mostly Tesla, Hyundai, Kia, Ford...a few others in much smaller numbers. I did have one pull out behind me on a real rough road today and it was funny to watch them go around all the bumps...but then I'm basically in a baja truck and the SUV in front of me was going at least as slow when I caught up. But back to the EVs in cold places: The sky isn't falling here like it is for Car-Addicted. He lives in constant fear of EVs, but they are here working every day.

Now it's mind numbingly fast and comfortable EV for the family and V8 when i'm driving alone
Sounds like a great deal. That's your initial depreciation back to you as a discount so well played

Global monthly atmospheric sulphur hexafluoride levels

The researchers found that SF6 emissions in China almost doubled from 2.6 gigagrams (Gg) per year in 2011, when they accounted for 34 percent of global SF6 emissions, to 5.1 Gg per year in 2021, when they accounted for 57 percent of global total SF6 emissions. This increase from China over the 10-year period — some of it emerging from the country’s less-populated western regions — was larger than the global total SF6 emissions rise, highlighting the importance of lowering SF6 emissions from China in the future.

I wonder if Sulphur compounds effect ground water?
