Better to drive a rented ICE for a 1000 mile round trip a time or two per
year if it gives one the flexibility to then be able to drive an EV for
the other 15,000 miles on clean energy.

So being polluting 7% of the time to be clean the other 93% is "better"
than not buing an EV because of the annual trip to grammas and then being
dirty 100% of the time.

An EV is not supposed to solve all transportation problems.  But it is
best for the 90% solution that is local.

Why would a polluting ICE be better than a ZEV?

> Yep. 240, or maybe 300, miles range is sufficient for road trips. At
least for me. But charge time has to be quicker. At least 100kW? That's
still 40-50 minutes for an 80% charge. For now, I can rent an ICE on those
occasions. But then we still need ICEs.
