Gav’s EV Conversion Car – Towing the Donor Car: The journey to convert an old gas car to electric starts here! I’m getting sick of paying for gas so I decided to do something about it. I’m not much of a mechanic but after doing casual research for some time, I decided I could convert a car to run on electricity by myself. No gas/hybrid oil-burning nonsense – just pure electric all the way!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=83_Zig2vZlQ&list=PL35736A8800B0BBE2
