Re: Car Weights


At least as long as lead-acid batteries remain popular, I'd say.

It's been pointed out that there are roughly 30 million cars registered in California. Divided by 500,000 lbs of lead, that means the average car looses 60 lbs. of lead each year. Being an average, some more, and some less. It doesn't seem like you have to buy lead at all. Just wander down the streets, and you're bound to find plenty.

At least in California.

I expect supplies will be plentiful for a long time -- at
least for my lifetime.

Even 500,000 lbs is barely 1/1000th of US lead
