I bet they did the same to her at the gas station. Those bastards.
If she is serious then she is one stupid hoe.
Okay, dumb question. Do electric cars not use oil for anything?
@Empshok, they do not have an internal combustion engine, and therefore do not need "oil changes"; hence the joke in the post.
I am not sure, however, if there is fluid maintenance required for power steering, brakes, etc.
@Oh so cherry, they have electric motors for those too. No maintenance besides brake pads, tires and don’t forget blinker fluid
@seeUpee, ah yes. I feel pretty stupid now. Blinker fluid. That's why BMWs are so cheap, they just don't have blinkers.
@Empshok, of course! There ya go… also do you know what the difference is between a porcupine and a BMW?
On the BMW the pricks are inside
@seeUpee, no gearboxes on the motors? All direct drive?
@ThePandaPool , yeah, the motors are directly coupled to the wheels and braking causes them to generate. No transmission or gearbox. Though I believe there is a reduction gear.
@Hot Coffee, that's wild. One day when they are old and worthless, I'll take one apart for the fun of it. Lol
@Oh so cherry, I’m reasonably certain that they have some kind of transfer case. Those have oil, but don’t need to be changed in the life of most passenger cars.
@ThePandaPool , that’s a worthy goal!
@Oh so cherry, even gas cars all have electric power steering now
@ThePandaPool , Plenty of much cheaper cars you can do that to now, if you really want to - it’s all basically the same tech inside.
@ThePandaPool , you could probably get with random shop taking apart a Tesla and ask if you can hang out. They might ask for ass cash or grass but they’ll oblige
@seeUpee, what about the elbow grease?
@A Deformed Penis, I actually met a dude who converted his Jeep to run on PROPANE. Apparently, it's a much smoother, cleaner burn with minimal byproduct so it also necessitates substantially fewer oil changes. But it's more of a pain to refuel, as you have to store it under pressure and wouldn't be able to store as much. I think it would probably be best used by a hybrid vehicle.
@Empshok, Had a truck with a propane conversion for a while.
It had terrible power and the mileage was abysmal.
@A Deformed Penis, that's why I was thinking it would be better as a hybrid.
Most electric car motors have oil and oil filters in them. Not sure why you would ever need to change the oil though, even though you could
As an electrical engineer can confirm you need oil changes. But I’ll beat any price they have and finish it up faster than you’re used to.
Get yourself some headlight fluid and elbow grease and you'll be good to go in no time.

What about changing the radiator fluid?
I’m expecting her follow up response is that she went and added oil to the engine anyway and it caught on fire
I’m pretty sure that this is sarcasm on her part....
