Default Quick poll

This is also on the Facebook thread about our motor swap.

Quick poll...

So, during project Tesla-powered Fisker we have discovered alot of extra space as the p85 motor is smaller in size and transversely mounted. Plus we will be removing the 2 giant Fisker PIM (inverters). So the question is what would a Fisker owner prefer--

A) Bigger trunk space (we would be removing the 45 degree ramp for a flat floor continuing to the back seat)

Or

B ) A larger capacity fuel tank thus extended range between fill-ups on long trips. (We would use the extra space with a custom made fuel tank that would hold almost double the fuel)

Decisions, decisions....

@FiskerPhilly, I had to create a new thread to set up a poll. My vote is on the bigger trunk.

My vote is for bigger trunk mostly because I wouldn't want a larger fuel tank... I'd prefer NO fuel tank - the gas/oil/ICE aspect of the 2012 is the achilles heel, IMO. Get rid of that and you'd have even MORE room.

This is actually even better than a bigger trunk.
